postage from china to UK??


RPF PREMIUM MEMBER friend has bought a transformer suit in China, but it's costing $500 to post to the UK and about 40 days to arrive. Does anyone know of any companies that could collect and deliver? It's 18kg in weight. I just need it faster...but without having to remortgage my house to pay for it. ☺

I used to order a lot of audio-equipment from China. The thing is, usually the send stuff with no shipping cost above 30$. I beleive theyget very good shipping deals or (international) shipping in china is just way cheaper. So if you have the chance, try organizing a shipping from china. So perhaps you can ask the seller himself to use Hong Kong Posts. Hong Kong post has proven to be very reliable and quick. They sent stuff in one week from China to Switzerland and they always manage to avoid customs fees.
