Have a box to ship from BKK to UK. Approximately 35x40x20 cm and 10kg. What are my options and likely cost. I seem to recall taking a box about half that to the post office for mailing to the US a couple of years back and they refused to do it. Had to send it by some overpriced courier type service. Contents valued about 300GBP so I don't want to spend the same amount for shipping it.

Ideas?

Thanks

I have done a lot of shipping from BKK over the past 25 years .That is not a large box at all.
The post office on New Road/ Charoen Krung /Bang Rak  will pack and ship for you...
or DHL very fast.

I suggest using a freight forward company perhaps. Lot of times they can send it with other consignments. I have used a company called Blue Sky Forwarding. They are located in Pratunam. Dion the owner is very helpful.

Thanks guys, er... will look into Blue Sky :)

It's not an urgent thing. Back in BKK at the end of April so maybe first week of May would like to send it.

You may try airport-to-airport shipping. Emirates gives a quote of ~5000 baht for BKK to LHR.
