Anyone know anything about shipping or couriers?

I want to get a box or two, about 1 foot by 2 foot by 1 foot in size, to Scotland from London.

They are going to be quiet heavy.

Any one know of any cheap ways on how I can ship these boxes up there?  I don't have a car myself. 

I don't mind if it takes months to get there, just want it to be cheap.

Thanks.

    How heavy are they going to be? Their prices rocket after about 15kg.

    Probably about 20kg.  I was hoping there would be some cheap deals if I wasnt in any hurry but I can find any.

    Cheers guys, much cheaper than I thought.

    I've done a bid on shiply and will see what I get but https://www.interparcel.com are quoting me about £20 which is good.  Although someone has to be in all day as they can't give times. :-(

    Anyone know of a really, slow, cheap courier that will do a box to Thailand from UK?

    You need to ship by sea then.We ship stuff by air and sea to as far as Australia.I think our Thai orders go by air though through DHL.
