    Yes! It's what I use. I can fill out the paperwork online to make it easy. UPS is 2 times the cost.
    Excellent. Thank you!

    Would anyone in the U.K. be willing to preorder the WH Smith edition of Sleeping Beauties, and ship to the US? I can pay in advance or reimburse via PayPal.

    So a rough estimate, how much to ship five books to the UK by way of USPS?

    Need a weight estimate. If it's 5 Sleeping Beauties, that would be quite a bit more than 5 Mr. Mercedes.

    Here is the USPS site for calculating:

    It took me $90 to get S/L Doctor Sleep, 1st Doctor Sleep, SubPress The Shining (Gift) and 2 copies of PS 20th Century Ghosts to the UK safely. I sent only the books, no covers or slipcovers. It was roughly 1/3 of that price to have them returned.

    For shipping t’other way, I sent 3 copies of Sleeping Beauties across to the US. The total for shipping was £71.

    I also sent a box containing 4 SB’s, a UK Creepshow, UK Gwendy’s, and shipping for that one was £83.

    Just to give you some idea from this side of the water too.

    Shipping a single SB was £18.50 by the way...

    You are paying far too much. I use P4D for all my overseas shipping. http://www.p4d.co.uk/

    Would any british know what would be the cheapest way to send packages from the UK to Europe?

    edit : I guess that Alan's link would be useful :
    http://www.p4d.co.uk/

    Any idea of how long does one have between printing a delivery label and bringing it at the post office for PARCEL FORCE WORLDWIDE?

    Hi All-
    There is a small item (<$10) that I would like to order, but it seems they only ship within the US.
    Is there a kind soul that would consider ordering it for me and then ship it to the Great White North when they get it?
    PM me if you can help.
    Thanks.

    **EDIT**
    Mission accomplished. Sure are a lot of good people here. Thanks to all that replied.

    I've used USPS in the past without any trouble but the cost is substantial. I never bothered to get a quote from UPS or FedEx, but assumed they would charge more. I think the GST is kinda hit and miss unless you mark it as a gift.

    I am looking to buy a non-book item that is only shipped within the US. Would it be a breach of protocol to ask for help here, just this one time?

    Don't know if this has been said here before, but I use shipito.com
    You get a free address in the states. They only charge $2 for their services per package. Great interface. You can choose between 6 or 7 options on which carrier to use from US to your destination. You fill in the customs form yourself through the website. You can cheat a bit with the value of the item for the mofos at customs.
    I even used that address to enter King's Outsider competition that was US only. (didn't win tho)
