    Probably a stupid question to most, but what's the best way to post a set of Brembo brakes? After packing it all up, I'm guessing they are around 25-30KG in weight(guesstimate, it might be lighter).
    I've always used RoyalMail(parecelforce) to post things, but they are not cheap for this type of bulky item at the required weight, so I guess DHL or something similar is more suitable right?
    Do I need an account to use DHL and do they come and pick the item from my place?

    Cheers.

    a set of 15" alloys with tyres i recently sent were 33kg so brembos will be no where near that weight, unless it includes discs etc, either way. 30kg costs around £6-10 through them

    It's the disks that are weighing it down, the calipers are quite light.

    I will have a look at both suggestions though, cheers.
