question regarding shipping/couries

Hi all, I was recommended to this site by a friend. Hopefully you can shed some light. I actually live in london but I was interested in purchasing a TV from Altwis and have it shipped to London. The local retailer does not do international shipping but has advised me to maybe ask local companies who might offer a delivery service. I have called the usual DHL and other coureer companies but they are charging extornita prices plus the cost of taxes and duty almost comes to 50% of the value of the TV. I was recommended in maybe utilising the home removal firms and maybe piggy back off one of the trucks coming to the UK. As the TV is glass and fragile I dont trust DHL as they throw items around and dont have any respect for items marked as fragile.

Can anyone help recommend a company who might be able to assist in bringing a TV over to london?

thanks in advance for your input.

MDD

Normally TVs are sent the other way. What is the name of the vendor in Altwis ?

You might want to reach Mike by way of a Private Message, as he makes several trips back to blighty in a van.
