I'm afraid I can't help you with this as though I've sold expensive stuff, I haven't breached that £250 barrier before so I don't really know how it works. I would go down to a Post Office and get some clarification if you wanted to be 100% sure on the situation.

Not sure if specialist courier companies offer higher insurance but they would probably charge more. Again, I can't speak from experience as I don't use the likes of UPS, DHL etc. because having stuff collected from me to be shipped abroad just isn't convenient with my work patterns and all that.

Royal Mail only insure international shipments up to £250, they will do up to £2500 on UK destinations. If you want to insure for more than £250 on an international package, it has to go Parcelforce instead. Or another third party courier (here's where sites such as Parcelmonkey help).

Evidence of posting would be the receipt with the tracking number you got when posting the item. Evidence of value would be the finished eBay listing etc.
Thanks for the replies and suggestions guys. I'll likely be putting it up in the next couple of weeks.

£250 for Radiant Silvergun? I feel sorry for genuine collectors wishing to pay through the nose for stuff like this, when others just treat this industry as a business and way to make a quick quid.

Its an awful lot of money for a jewel case, instructions and a compact disc with an ISO on, when you can buy the exact identical game on Xbox Live for about £6 minus the plasticky and papery bits, except with the option to upgrade the textures or switch back to Saturn mode. Having said that, if people are willing to pay out this kind of money, then have at it....i'm just glad I can still play the game without paying silly money for it.
I paid that much for it when I got it back in 2009. On reflection, I wouldn't do it again - I'm not even a shoot 'em up fan nor have I ever owned a Sega Saturn. It has literally been sitting in my cabinet for almost 10 years.
