    Default Best way to ship boxes from UK?

    Hi everyone, any advice would be appreciated:
    I have about 8 small/medium boxes to be shipped from the UK (London) to NZ. Anyone have any experience with this and recommendations? Obviously I don't need a container but was wondering if the boxes can just be brought to a Royal Mail post office counter in the UK and shipped or if it's better to use Fed Ex?
    Thanks!

    I've seen this company http://www.parcel2go.com/ recommended, as being reliable, and cheaper to use than Royal Mail.

    Depends on how big they are, but what about the Excess Baggage Company?

    My friend used mailboxes.co.uk when shipping stuff home to Canada. They provided the box and gave her a price for shipping that box. She was also able to track it the entire way.

    And a third of the price of Anglo Pacific for my bike.

    Although I love their no compensation list. Basically everything. Even funnier, they actually have that in their list:-

    Torches
    various
    Vase
    velux
    .

    blah
