    Default Posting big items

    I am planning to sell some ruler height charts that I've made and have no idea how I would go about posting them without it costing a fortune.

    Does anyone on here sell things from home and could give me some tips when it comes to postage? How would I get packaging to fit, suggestions of companies to use for delivery etc. I would be posting a plank of wood approx 4kgs, 2.1m high, 15cm wide and 2cm thick. I'd most likely wrap it in bubble wrap too which would make the width bigger.

    Thanks!

    Check out the courier companies for quotes. If you can give them your measurements and weight they should be able to give you a quote. Something like that likely wouldn't be accepted by Aus Post as they're quite specific. DH sold some roof racks a few months back and for memory they were about $10-15 to courier interstate.

    Unfortunately it's going to cost a bomb to post. Courier may be cheaper than Aus post but postage is a killer as everyone expects you to give free postage

    Australia post have postage calculators on their website where you can out dimensions etc and get a pice. But I reckon it will be pricey. Check the couriers like PP suggested. I think they would be cheaper.
