I've agreed to sell a pony to someone in america, (I'm from the uk) but does anyone have a rough idea on the postage just for one baby pony?
thankyou Smile xx

It's best to ask at your post office, they'll give you the most accurate answer Smile Just take them the pony packaged so that they can weigh it.

You can calculate it using the royal mail website...all you need to know is the weight of the parcel [I would suggest wrapping the pony up and popping her on kitchen scales so you have the final parcel weight]....

Click on "price finder" on the this site...http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder-toolkit

The RM price finder is pretty accurate...I have never been wrong with shipping when I have used it...but as gazzy says sometimes its easiest to go to the Post Office with the parcel and ask them to weigh it and give you a price.

I would suggest online calculators too!

They work most of the time!

I usually charge about £3.00 to usa. I see the sight is down so you can't see but i think the cheapest lightest is about 2.20-2.50 can't remember quite but its around that mark. However you could just take it to post office in the morning.

its been a while since I sent a single baby pony to the US ,and it does depend on how you pack the parcel.. but yeah it should cost around £3.00, maybe a little less. I always pack the parcel and then weigh it on some kitchen scales like hathorcat mentioned. The price guide on the Royal mail website is pretty accurate . The only thing I've sometimes found is that the older type scales at some PO's can be off, so it could be a little bit higher or a bit lower than it should be. The difference should not be much for such a light parcel awake
The postage rates via Airmail from UK to US are:
120g : £2.32
140g : £2.60
160g: £2.90
180g: £3.20
200g: £3.50
220g: £3.80
