    as speedy said,, try a few of the comparison sites..
    would be wise to get the insurance after all of the videos I have seen of parcels being thrown about by staff.

    I used parcels to go which if you just put the weight in brings up several options. If you click More info, it then says maximum dimensions. I'm just unsure which company will take a parcel 186cm x 36cm x 67cm as to me some will but in the home page of parcel2go there's an option that asks if your parcel is over 1m long.The price then jumps up loads.

    Are you buying it from the Honda garage on Wessington Way?

    It's from a Honda dealer up that way. I'm just trying to get a local dealer to fit it.

    I'll look at that parts courior later.

    I think parcel force large is about 40 quid so far.

    strange,, I recently got my side skirts delivered from @Holdcroft Honda and there was no issue, , didn't even have to pay delivery.
    I am only an hour or so away from that garage so if you find it easier to have it sent from a private address rather than a commercial one ( not sure if this would make a differanc4) I could pick it up for you and send it.

    It the 4 hour drive that's put the price up on postage not that it's being picked up from honda. Thanks anyway. I have now idea why they can't send it.

    Thanks for the help guys. Parcel force say they'll deliver the bumper. I just hope it weighs no more then 10kg either way it's sorted along with fitting at a Honda dealer by my work. With the money saved I'll go to Holdcroft and get the side proectors and hopefully some other things.
