Default Best Way to Redirect Mail US>UK

Hi there!

just wondered if anyone has recommendations for having our mail redirected from the US to the UK? USPS seem to charge a small fortune, are there any good alternatives?

Thanks for any help!

I have no direct knowledge but check out UPS. My guess is that it is more expensive than USPS, but probably more reliable.

I used US Global Mail to forward my post for about 1 year after leaving Houston in 2015. There were no problems.

If you access to the internet via phone or computer. Perhaps a service like this would work better than forwarding?

Beware, though there are many similar services out there but charges can get steep if you do not manage the account correctly. After much research this company worked for me.
