Try Fedex if you call customer services 08456 070809 and ask for a quote giving size and weight be carefull because if you do not take up that shipping quote there and then and you do it a week later thinking it will be the same often it is not, we also use Bax global but generally only for sea frieght inward bound from USA, hope this may be of use

Sounds like Stuimpy's your man but if he cant help then Fedex offer a pretty good service. I've used em (for business rather than personal stuff) to ship from Europe to Canada extensively.
Depending how quickly you want to get whatever it is there you could try royal snail parcels. I had some DVD's sent surface mail to us in Newfoundland which arrived amazingly quickly in 2 weeks or so.

Unfortunately with those dimensions, you are looking at a piece at 55kg volume (Chargable weight). I have been quoted 174 for that piece. Had it been only 11.5kg and not volumed, it would have been 59.40. Should you still require shipping at that price then dont hesitate to contact me on 02085619876. Regards Matt.
