    I am looking to ship two boxes of boat parts from Michigan to South coast of the UK, each box is 72"x22"x22" and weighs around 75lb, can anyone recommend the cheapest way to do this.

    Thanks

    Cheapest I found was the U.S. postal service, and their insurance is very Cheap too. you might be up against their maximum weight per parcel, worth checking.

    Cheers Guys,

    The US Postal service was the cheapest idea but they have a max weight of 70lb which I could meet at a squeeze and a max length of 60" which I couldn't.

    TX Global is also pretty cheap, better than I found through google, so Thanks.

    Any other suggestions?

    Gareth
