Default Any opinions on shipping service? UK to US (West)

I have many boxes of comics in the attic back home that I want to ship here to CA
Several cubic yards.
Each box is pretty heavy.

No rush to get them if slower is cheaper.

Update: I'll have a look at sevenseas and shipit.

Can you get someone to palletise them ? I just moved pallet loads of computer gear here at a great price.

Find my own pallet and stack then shrink wrap? Is that what you mean?

I can. I'll probably take a trip and do it myself.

Who did you use?

I use Future Forwarding. PM me and I'll give you the contact details. We moved a 40 foot container from Holland to PA in October with them, landed, delivered was just less than 5 K. Last week three more pallets came in, I can find the cost of them too.
