Default Shipping (Medium) Boxes from New York to UK - Suggestions?

Hi all,

I am looking to ship approx 6 x medium boxes to the UK from New York City. Not concerned with delivery time.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Basic UPS if they aren't too heavy. You get delivery to the door with the same company, so no hand-off to a third party at the airport(s) and a tracking number.

From digging around earlier, I found this UK based service: https://www.mybaggage.com - reviews solid and prices reasonable ($130 for 20kg medium box door-to-door).

UPS came out around $250 a box - however these manage the delivery throughout which is obviously safer - however with modern tracking I am not as concerned about that as I might once have been.
