Shipping costs from USA

Anybody know who can "ship" a box, 17" x 17" x 24" & 16 lbs from the US to GB.
I've got UPS - $339.38! Fed X - $307.66! DHL - £86.00.

Jezzus, the cost of the goods is only $75.00!

Im afraid as a member of the public you get ripped off by these people!
International freight is what I do for a living and if I sent that to the USA (approx 12kg going on dim weight) that would cost me around £40-£50 via UPS. I'll give them a bell on monday and see if they can send it here on our account and still be charged our rates.

Rob.

Im currently shipping a cowling back with BAXGLOBAL. Ups wanted 660 dollars to get it here and they werent really interested. Bax only wanted 220! There picking it up (hopefully) today and it will be here in 5 days! They couldnt have been more helpful on the phone either! Thats for a 34"x24"x26" box that weighs 40lbs. Fookin bargain! If ya say you can pick it up from your local airport its even cheaper! Im getting mine from gatwick!

Only thing to watch using USPS is that Parcel Farce deliver it when it gets over here and they can be real fun to try and get something from when it's got a customs charge on it. They charge to sort the customs charge too.
