Im moving some things to somewhere im staying for 2 months, Just a small old fashioned monitor, a pc and some bedding.
Original plan was put bedding in bags and 1 change of clothes (washing machine there) and a few t shirts and underwear and carry the small monitor as the base comes off and send my pc by courier which costs £8 (but no insurance on it)
But I was thinking as Im moving in on a Friday even if I sent PC the day before it wouldn't arrive to Monday so I would be reliant on my laptop all weekend (which fits in backpack)
I can get taxi to my local train station for under £4 and one to the new property for about the same price so works out the same but emans I have pc to use same day.
The biggest problem though is getting the pc to platform, its doable but awkward and I have to transfer at another station which means about 2 or 3 minutes walk (thats without heavy pc)
I know theres trolleys at the place im transferring from, and at arrival station but the one I am leaving from doesn't but trains are regular.
So is it better to get taxi and just struggle for a few minutes walk or send by courier?
Use a courier or get a taxi? watch

Yeah its not much stuff just awkward to carry, so just 2 pillows, change of clothes, quilt, 12 inch monitor(its that old only has VGA) and a pc in a box and maybe a bag of toiletries.
A few weeks ago I carried 5 pillows, change of clothes, the same monitor, the bag of toiletries and some shopping and it was doable the biggest problem was the pillows being so thick I could only fit one per bag so it was hard to carry
