    Shipping parts from the UK

    Just wondered what companies people have used to ship parts from the UK and what their costs per volume have been like (if that's what they base it on)?

    I know a lot of chaps over here have had Cossie engines shipped out so someone must be able to point me in the right direction

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi mate,

    Cheers for the info.

    I have various parts already in stock at my Parents house which I'd like sending out. Just trying to find the right people.

    I will give them a try though, thanks. Do the interparcel people collect from the buyers house or do you have to arrange for them to be taken to their UK depot for shipment?

    Anyone else got any recommendations?

    I've just used Parcel2go.
    My dad sent me a grill over, they collect from your home/office and provide a door to door service.
    Reasonable price and about 7-10 days transit time I think.

    Cheapest method but by far the longest is shipping it over you could send over as little as a pallet or a whole container if need be
