Has anyone had any experience of shipping batteries nationally within the UK.

Would appreciate advice on any couriers that you know who will transport batteries for Phantom and Inspire within UK only.

I look at the Royal Mail Parcel Force website and thought that they would also carry, but you had to present the package at a Post Office.  I may call UPS and Parcel Force to see what their current stance is as its not exactly clear cut.

Their questions (the Post Office) are in-regards to whether the battery is part of the item being posted or removable?
I have sent Phones which are the same format and just told them that they are part of the unit and they were OK with that!

Just for everyones benefit.  Royal Mail Parcel Force were the only ones I could get to take.  Having said that I contacted them on three separate occasions the first said it was possible and they could ship, second time they categorically stated they are no longer able to handle Lithium Polymer batteries and that website info is out of date following rule changes in January 2017.  When I spoke with my more local Royal Mail Depot the answer was I was correct in stating reiterating their current web site info that allows one battery in the equipment and two spares.  The only way though was to take the package to a Post Office Counter as unable to be collected.  Counter staff accepted parcel without any fuss or issue.

Usually in difficult shipping's, pages like http://clicktrans.com/ comes in handy. Instead of making tons of calls and reading tons of regulations for every transport provider that offers services in your neighborhood, on pages like this all you have to do is to list the item you want to ship. You will quickly get lot's of quotes from transport providers willing to deliver the package. Very convenient and usually can even halp to save some cash aswell
