Can anyone recommend a US package forwarding company?

There are several US shops (eg US I'd like to shop with online but they will not ship internationally (or will only ship certain items - strange confused)

I've discovered that there are many parcel forwarding companies out there but the prices range from a bit pricey to shock. It seems to be that I need to 'hire' a US Po Box address and then they forward the parcel on to me in the UK. I am not sure which companies to trust and wondered if anyone can recommend one?
Thanks smile

Can I bump this please! Come on guys - does anyone have an answer to this question? I'm sure it's been discussed here before but can't find the thread!

Maybe Aramex Shop and Ship? I used them when I worked overseas but not used them from the UK. Might be worth a go? Orders are based on weight so you can use their online calculator to see shipping rates.

Do border free do it?

Shop and ship by aramex! I live overseas and have a uk account and a us one.

Easy to set up, small fee, then you pay for each parcel. It goes on weight so bear that in mind as costs soon add up

Also, they don't ship liquids. I sobbed when my mammoth Estée Lauder shipment was rejected!

Well I just looked into this and it appears that I cannot use the service if I'm living in the UK. United Kingdom/Great Britain/England doesn't appear on any of the drop down menus.

Any other ideas ??

I would highly recommend a company called Shipville.
