Default Shipping stuff again...

Can anyone point me in the direction of any cheap shipping companies?

Not for a full household, just some unaccompanied baggage....we've been in the UK for nigh on 6 months, and its amazing how much 'stuff' we've accumulated - a lot of it will be ditched rather than shipped, but we've travelled quite a bit, and there are a lot of souvenirs and things that we want to hold on to. Plus with Christmas around the corner, I just know the kids are going to end up with more bulky stuff to bring back...

Have checked out Parcelforce and the Fedex/DHLtypes, and they're astronomical (probably be cheaper to fly back and hand carry it!!)

Sorry, I know there was a thread on this a while ago, but I can't find it.

Thanks

I used these guys this year to bring some stuff from the UK to the US and they were very good and a good price too. The US contracted delivery firm were very helpful and friendly.
