What shipping service do you use to send small items from the UK to the US?
 
Electric power tool. Weighs around 20 lbs. Not sure on dimensions, but estimate around 2 feet x 2.5 feet x 1 feet.

What shipping provider would you use to send this item to the MidWest US ? I can get the chap in the UK to ship it to a UK address, so he could send it to the Shipping service provider who would then send it to the US. Preferably the shipping service would collect the item from the guy in the UK.

Transglobal Express they offer quotes will the major shippers. I like them as if the person in the UK does not have a computer / printer they will mail the waybill. I have heard Parcel Hero is good but never used them.

Can't say I would want to ship a power tool to the US. It would have to be very special to cover the shipping costs alone.
Curious, what are you shipping?

It was 110 volts and the brand is quite rare over here because it is very expensive. I didn't end up buying it but will in the future. I do have other stuff in England, from a 1000lb grinder to London Underground meta signs that weigh 100-300lbs , but these things are too heavy to ship by air, so I will have to palletize and crate for container shipping, which I can only do when I head over to England.
