Best website for shipping large gear overseas / experiences

Hi all

trying to buy a mixing desk from the USA (to the UK) and considering these intermediary parcel companies such as parcelhero and parcelcompare, that offer cheaper international shipping.

some of the reviews online seem quite dubious, but hard to distinguish the authentic or reasonable ones from the non.

Any previous experiences with any of these websites or others that anyone could point me towards?

thanks a lot as always!!

It depends what the desk is.
A Mackie 32/8 or 1604, then I'd probably find a cheaper packing service and risk it.
An irreplaceable vintage console, especially large format, you're probably best going with a dedicated audio shipper - like Rocket Cargo.
Very expensive, but that's why people generally don't buy large, vintage pieces privately and ship them themselves. The less stressful way of doing it is going through an experienced vintage audio dealer.
