    Check out these folks and similar - it is a commercial mail box forwarding service similar to one I used in London once. You also get secure and traceable handling

    If the blokes willing to package and post it, then why would the final destination matter since you are incurring all the cost's. Some people make life so damn difficult.

    Though they've been killing me on shipping costs, I have found that all branches of mbe (mail boxes etc) that I've dealt with all over the UK are willing to gather up item's, package and post them. So long as this isn't a long case movement expect to pay anywhere from 80 to 100 British pounds for this service though.

    Lloyd,
    I'm going to ship a woodworks movement to the States next week. Therefore, I'll have the lesson already freshly learned;). Once I bought a clock from the UK and the seller sent me two by mistake. I shipped the second one from here, Spain, to its real destiny, Singapore...:rolleyes:
    If the movement is not that of a tower clock, I volunteer...

    Yep, Clip is right! It is a slang word for man used in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. Here is an interesting write up: Click Here

    A policeman friend in Australia used to tell a bad pun regarding their rules on men arresting women. The bad pun rule was -

    If it ain't bloke don't frisk it.
