    I've checked several and have narrowed down to 2.. Royal or Parcel2Go

    Royal mail standard parcel.. 3-5day (yuck).. Not sure whether it'll take that long.. for &#163;10.70 for a 10kg parcel..

    Parcel2Go, 48hr service.. &#163;13.90..

    This is actually just collecting info for my seller.. I'm getting a tasty Akasa Eclipse from him.. He'll be posting from Northhampton to Sheffield (where I'm at)..

    If I can sort this out today, then he'll be able to send it tomorrow.. Ideally I would like to get it by Saturday as that is the last day I'm allowed to be back at my old place before I'll need to surrender the place back to the owner..

    Any other suggestions?

    To be honest Royal Mail Parcel Post doesn't really take 3-5 days in my experiences. It usually arrives in 2/3 days!
