I'm about to ship out my Hedworth Set to the UK. Does anyone on the forum have suggestion from packaging to carrier(Fedx, DHL, etc..)
Thank you

Don't forget to label them something like " bagpipes for repair. property of the sender. To be returned to the USA after repair." (Assuming that is the case).

Otherwise the recipient will be liable for 2.5% duty and 20% VAT on the declared value.
