Might I suggest DHL?

 

Anything coming from the US to overseas is going to be like US$35 or more, but inside the US shipping is much lower

 

http://www.dhl.com

 

I have my own shipping account with them for miscellaneous items, including RMAs…

 

They are flawless as far as customer service goes, and about a week after I setup my account, I received a phone call and they were able to give me very good personalized rates based on the types items I ship and the frequency.

 

I don’t think UPS does this…. Do they?

I second another shipping option...UPS charged me a CDN$30 customs brokerage fee on top of shipping and taxes. So, a ~$200 order fast becomes nearly $300 with shipping, UPS "brokerage" fees, and taxes...

Hi,

Are there any other overseas shipping options apart from UPS? It's going
to cost $40.80 to ship me $4.00 worth of screws and spacers!

Has anyone managed to get a source for these in the UK?

thanks,
alec
