I want to get some front knuckes/hubs, discs and calipers sent over from LA.

The shipping quote from this chap has been seriously expensive.

Does anyone know of any reasonably priced shippers for US to UK?

A total weight of 84lb's ~ 40kg

Expensive = $622!

That was with UPS

I used them a few years ago to bring in from LA a short block I bought on ebay, only £230.
If you are not in a hurry, get your bits 'consolidated',i.e. they get put together with other stuff in a warehouse & then all shipped together, works out cheaper.

I will be coming back from LA about 5th November. I'll bring them back as excess baggage if you like. You can pick them up from Manchester or I could Courier them to you. You can get the vendor to send them to my daughter's house in Encino.
Just a thought.

Thanks for the kind offer but it's a serious weight an I'd think you'll get raped for excess baggage charges.

The option now though is to only have the hub spindles sent so no discs or calipers and that should dramatically reduce the weight

I have used Russ at R and R to bring heavier stuff over. If he has a container coming to be your schedule. Highly recommended.
