You can send it Express Sameday (eg CitySprint) at about £1 ish a mile, no wrapping required and its fully insured... or...
you can send it Nextday Service (eg UPS/TNT) charged per kilo, lots of protective wrapping required and sod all insurance. Dunno what it weighs but i would guess about £30 should do it.

Yeah I've used Interparcel for years and they are really good for anything over 2Kg within UK or International but I'm not sure if they'll take something as big as a bike , worth a try though.

I can recomend Shiply. Got a Coke machine delivered from Brighton to Derby for £25!
Would've cost me more than that in petrol alone.

Thanks for all your replies, its actually a bike, peddle sort, can measure it but anyone any idea of the weight a of a bike approximately, I cant lift it not alone weigh it.....

Thought of taking it but like you say the petrol will be more ...

Don't know where you are, or where the bike is going to, but you can take them on the train, for a small fee, I think, if it's convenient for stations.

That way you know it will not get damaged.

Saw one on the Interlink Express van the other day, and it just had a sticker with a barcode, on the handlebars! The driver said it stood little chance of arriving undamaged.
