Default Need an advice on how to post panniers

Hey guys,
looking for an advice on whom I should ask on postage prices to get a set of side panniers posted to Greece. Also how would you package such items? Im thinking couple of heavy duty bin bags should do the job. TA

An post is about 80 euro for reg post or 72 standard for 10kg. Cheaper for less kg.
If you could tape some cardboard over the plastic bags be a better job.

I would ask in your local post office - they know what they're on about - like they will take the object off your hands and weigh it and then give you price for the postage- its like they have the market cornered also calling themselves the post office is a giveaway!

Just got a pair delivered by courier to me. Large cardboard boxes lined with aero board 10mm thick sheets. No damage and all accessories in one box.

Parcel2go.com, Anpost will rape you. I use this website for the business now all the time as we don't do enough volume to negotiate special rates with couriers and it's cheaper than going straight through courier.
