Am dithering about whether or not to ship some floorstanding speakers from the US to UK. These are big and heavy, and I got them fairly cheap (but like them...) - am I likely to be looking at more than GBP 100 to do this, or can anyone suggest a cheap shipping service?

Thanks,

Jon

Cheers. That seems to be UK to US, though (though a good price!); anyone know a company working the other way...

Jon, what size of speaker & weight are they, plus the value sir please

Different shippers, have different break points on weight and value.

Might be able to offer some advice.

Weight apparently about 10kg, internal volume 29.1l (need to get a measuring tape to measure the outside).

Value is one of these 'how long is a piece of string' type questions. Got them pretty cheap from a guy who wanted rid of them, but to get one of allison acoustic's speakers new would cost a lot - around $1k for a floorstander, I think... Would probably insure them for a mid-way point - $500, say...

EDIT- btw, they're allison CD7 speakers

I would try Bax Global, Last pair of speakers I shipped (personally) were 220 kg's and air freight insured 3 day was $410

So I would expect around the £140-170 mark Jon
