I've always used Phoenix Intl. worldwide company I think, should have offices in the UK.

Airfreight prices were very good!

last time I used them was way way back and due to a c&ck up in the paperwork which I reckoned they probably should have known about I had to set fire to my imported goods ... although I nearly got away with it as I had a nice helpful import guy/officer who I reckoned would let it go, but he went on a 2 week holiday and left me to deal with a complete beeeatch beeeatch beeeatch there I feel better now

and second time I tried to use them they kept banging on about how the outboard must have no oil petrol in it at all, not even a sniff so I didn't use them but I guess it worked out for you TD
