Default Shipping monitor and pc parts in suitcase

Hi guys I have to England on holiday and bought some pc parts and a monitor now I have no clue how I'm going to do this but I'm going to put all my parts and my monitor into 2 cases 20kilo each and pray they do not break. And do Tenerife charge for the parts to be imported ?? I don't know and I'm really worried any help and tips would be nice thanks

Sandwich the monitor between 2 pillows. The rest if it's just parts should be ok wrapped in towels.
You do have to declare them other wise if you get caught you could wind up being treated like a terrorist. Transporting electronics between countries is closely monitored since just about anything can be used to build detonators.

They will toss your luggage on the belt no matter what sign you put on, so... I don't recommend it.
