    2-5KG medium isn't a bad price, I get better tracked with UPS but as a one off that would be ok. Not sure that many post offices would appreciate people dropping off a few prepaid 5kg packages.

    Shutl are still giving £5.35 plus a few pennies for remotes for 24 UPS 2-5kg. You don't need to have sold on eBay to use it.
