I've just sold an engine strut from my car on eBay. It is about 2 metres wide and weighs a good amount, anyone know the best (cheapest) way to send it please? I'm not sure if I'm best going to the post office or doing it some other way.

Wrap it up in bubble wrap and use the Royal Mail, I send out boxed computers and they can be a lot cheaper than you think for bulky large items.

Length will be an issue with most  Smiley
Parcelforce 48 is your best bet, sent two strut braces using them myself. Will be about 11.

yeah I usually pay about 11 for a boxed PC on a 48 hour service.

I thought this was going to be about posting an awkward topic on the forum. I'm mildly disappointed
