    Curious as to who you folks have used for shipping complete PC's out.

    Got a machine to go across country, seems as though £50 which would insure it for £1000 is the cheapest quote, seems expensive though?

    Most companies won't even insure them now. Or parts, or monitors.

    £50 doesn't surprise me tbh.

    I've used DPD, UPS and DHL before. As you know it depends on size, weight and value you need insurance for. The UPS pick-up service was efficient once booked but their website is a pain (they have a tracker that was blocked by my Pi-Hole that I had to whitelist temporarily to get it to work).

    I wouldn't go near Hermes, they tend to use parcels like footballs and leave them in rubbish bins by all accounts I've seen posted here.

    For a PC costing £1k, I wouldn't skimp on a few quid. The last PC I sent by courier was around £20-£30 for an insurance value of £300 IIRC, the cost does step up as insurance goes up.
