    as in the title
    Basically i ve decided to sell my old laptop on ebay, but need a suggestion of which courier to use, normally i would try yodel but after seeing the documentary where they threw fragile labelled things onto vans i know its too much of a risk to use them for this, and hermes will just lose it.

    I like using Click and Collect- They appear to be reliable, fast and postage is affordable

    Yodel
    MyHermes
    HDNL

    Personally, I recommend DPD, as they're the nicest ones ever, and will arrange to pick up and deliver, unlike some, who just turn up

    I thought DPD only worked for business, if they do personal parcels that's brilliant news

    You know what, it might be, I only ever deal with parcels from a business perspective (usually customer end). If they're not an option, then I'd say go with DHL.

    If you want to cover yourself, mark it fragile using fragile tape, and slap one of these bad boys on it: http://www.packability.co.uk/Shockwa...icators-Labels then tell the recipient that it's got a ShockWatch sticker, and ask them to verify it hasn't been activated before signing for the parcel

    I'll definetly mark it with tape but although it seems like a brilliant idea those labels are worth more than the item itself unfortunately.

    Oops, didn't notice that they were multipacks, maybe contact that company and ask if you can sample/buy just one?
