I’ve just bought some original bin lids for the 928 but, they’re up in Eastbourne so I need to arrange collection. I doubt the seller will be interested in wrapping them so I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?

Must be wrapped and boxed if you plan on using any regular courier and plan on them arriving without any damage. Will pass through several drivers hands and several distribution centres. Opportunity for damage will be high, price will be palletable. Or you pay a specific driver who hand collects and delivers direct to your door without unloading at a distribution centre. This price will be premium as you are paying one persons salary and vehicle mileage to collect and deliver.

If packaged then parcels2go is your best bet or myhermes directly

You could try shiply for an independent courier driver

I've had a few deliveries where the courier does the packing and have it in their container - but I keep on forgetting to record who they are but might have been UPS.

Pack and send offer the service https://www.packsend.co.uk/consumer-solutions/domestic-deliveries-consumer/

Cheers!
I’ll have a look. I can afford to spend a little more on postage as I got them for a steal!
