DHL and the like are expensive - I haven't used them for years. I suspect that for something as smallas 5kg Parcel Force is likely to be your cheapest and most convenient option.It might be worth getting a quote from Fast Lane International, but I haven't used them for a package as small as that, and they may be no cheaper than Royal Mail.

Try ParcelForce at any Post Office - I found that quite economical.

Sending from the UK, airmail 'small packets' are up to 2.5 kilos each - and really cheap rates. Might be worth splitting your 5kilo parcel into two......

Hi Petra,

If you don't mind waiting 14 to 21 days then ask to be quoted for sending the packet by sea. This will cut the cost dramatically. If you'll be using the service on a regular basis, say once every two weeks, then you can also get discounts for repeat business. Contact all the well known companies in the UK besides Royal Mail try DHL, UPS etc for information.

Generally packets I get sent from the UK arrive in around 10 to 14 days. The couriers err on the side of caution with their estimates of 14 to 21 days.
