Default Any one know of a good international parcel delivery company?

Hi, I'm heading back to the UK at the end of June for a couple of months, and need to ship some personal items ahead of me e.g. books, mobile printer etc. Does anyone know of a good trustworthy, reasonably inexpensive parcel delivery company?
Thanks

Agreed. The higher price would be well worth paying.

I've used https://www.parcelmonkey.co.uk/ a few times and it's about 1/2 the cost of Fedex/DHL.

For anything larger, I've also used a http://www.transpakship.co.uk/

Hi there, thanks for this. I use Parcel on key when I'm in the UK. As you say, they are very cost effective and reliable, to boot. But I didn't realize they would operate from here in Barbados. Probably through an intermediary. But I'll also check out transpakship.co.uk.

Thanks once again.
