Shipping options for a frame

What service would anyone recommend for shipping a carbon frame within the UK?
I guess the requirement would be either something I can drop at the post office or a service that can collect from my workplace.

Thanks for any suggestions.

    Just a get a box from your lbs and jobs a guddun.

    i'm looking into this too as i need to ship a frame for a warranty claim.

    there are services like "parcel2go" who will quote a price for collecting from your home and delivering where you need.

    i have used them before to post a whole bike

    you need to have the frame boxed up so you can take parcel measurements and weigh it in order to get the quote.

    I've just used these http://www.interparcel.com/?gclid=CIfMz ... 4QodDyfSVw to return a Saris Bones 3. Gives more options of companies. UPS collected mine, couldn't have been easier.
