Hi Will,
When you mention a NI address I'm assuming you use "Parcel Motel" ??

There's a new service from An Post that will bring parcels from a mainland UK address to your  local post office
3.50 for up to 20kg   :clap:

These are amazing! They are a 10 minute drive from work in Littleborough. Huge shop floor with shed loads of materials and helpful even for small bits I sometimes go in for.

Thanks John, I'm aware of the new An Post service. It looks good but don't exceed the weight/size limit as its then 25 (Max 20kg and size  less than 72cm X 31cm X 25cm)

My comment was more about the Royal Mail and or the suppliers involved.
Why do some suppliers not want the export business?

In Irelaand the Homebrew shops (Nort and South) will deliver any where up to 30Kgs, next day usually for just 6 using DPD or Nightline!
