Seems like the most reasonable subforum to post this in.
i recently won an auction on an amplifier in the states, however after he got a quote.. well, it was over $500 to the uk.

Can anyone suggest a shipping service that might cost less.

obviously the box would be bigger though..

any help is greatly appreciated.

unfortunatley, from us to uk will cost alot
try sending it thru airfrieght yrself? a shipping company- but that will take a month

i don't mind it taking a while, just as long as the cost is kept as low as possible..

i mean there must be Some way to get it over here for under $200 surely!

any particular airfreight companies i could suggest to him?

the problem u are going to get is that the frieght companies are going to have minumum charges
i dont think it will be poss to spend under 200usd
also, each country will have their taxes and duty
do a search on yahoo for sea frieght companies

Yeah remember that even if you do et it posted, once it gets here you have to pay 17.5% VAT + customs fees which will probably be pretty hefty on a cab.

So the deal you think you got might not end up being as goodas you think...
