    I'm trying to post a scope to the Netherlands via parcel force, with the insurance it's silly money .
    Can anyone suggest a better and cheaper way to send it?
    Thanks in advance

    Insurance

    It needs to go in the post tomorrow, and I don't want to give the responsibility of taking it for me to anyone.
    I looked at the postage site and it's the insurance that makes it stupid money £41 plus vat extra.
    I think it will have to be parcel force and pay the extra.

    I'm not sure any of them cover sending glass Simon.

    Well packaged

    I've told them exactly what it is and they have come back with nearly £50 insurance.
    Don't think the glass will be a problem.
    Thanks for all the advice
