    Have you tried Parcel2Go?

    Televisions are notoriously expensive to ship, especially at that size.

    You may find it is cheaper to drive it there yourself......

    I use ********************* for my UK deliveries, they also cover the over 30kg parcels which I use for sending engines for lawn tractors. They are already on the list but no mention of the over 30kg capability. For palllets I used to use Pallex but the local depot has closed so looking at Speedshift .

    Contact your selected courier and ask them if you can open an account although I believe they require you to be shipping out a minimum amount of parcels per day.
