    Sounds a bit high, although things may have changed in the last year. I had the same deal from Oakland, California, about the furthest US port to leave from, and it was £1500 (would have been £1200 from LA). And I think it was still around £1200 from New York at the time.

    I used Kingstown Shipping and they were very good, sorting all the import documents - all I had to do was give them the duty/VAT and then collect from Chatham.

    does sound dear, i'm paying £1250 + VAT from Kansas to Milton Keynes, neither of which are on a coast so there is other transport/handling involved
    A bullet might have your name on it, hand grenades are addressed "to whom it may concern......."

    You can never have too much red wine, too many books or too much ammunition.
