Am looking for a shipper from UK to Australia for 3 items - possibly about 3-5 kilos each but value of each is about 2000 GBP.

Not sure if it is going to be possible to find a reasonable shipper as well as insurance cover. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    You might want to look at private shipping companies who do specific services to Australia. The big couriers probably wouldn't give it that much care.



    As far as the big companies go I'd say FedEx but not certain what their insurance goes up to. They'll probably be the speediest though and no matter what the insurance deals are I'd much prefer items were delivered sooner rather than later.

    It will also depend on what you are sending. You may need to use a specialist company for sending painting for example. You need to be absolutely certain that it is properly covered.
