Found 29th May 2007
Hi All,
I am looking for a way to ship 3 25LB boxes from Colorado US to the UK.
Best I can find so far is $102.00 Per box! with the US post office.

Can any one advise me on a cheaper method?

How urgent is it ?

UPS surface mail international might work out cheaper but will be in the 4-6 weeks bracket and 90% guaranteed customs will have a pokey.

Hi, Thanks for the fast reply
It's not urgent, problem is the company wants me to pre-pay postage and arrange for collection. (They do not ship to UK direct)

If go to USPS web site to use click & ship and pay online, they dont offer the surface option. Which is of course much cheaper the Global express option.

DHL do a "Jumbo Box" which is a fixed price for up to 25kg if it fits in the big box provided. I think it's more expensive than the other service you have found though... but it does arrive in 3 days. I can't find a price on the web though.
