Hi,

I need to ship a pair of wheels from Australia to the UK and was hoping somebody may have some experience of this or similar and could recommend a well priced option?

Quotes from FedEx seem to cost half the value of the wheels ($2k wheels).

Thanks!

I shipped my touring bike back a couple of years ago with DHL, was something like £250 and took a week. Try looking into excess baggage companies, they were a lot cheaper than the couriers when I was looking but wouldn't take a full bike as it was too big in the box, I think they would take a wheel box though.
