Economical international freight

I have located several vintage minicomputers that I would like to add to my
collection, being offered
for a quite reasonable price. Unfortunately, they are currently located in
the UK. Shipping for a CPU
that I estimate weighs between 25 and 30kg via UPS or Federal Express works
out to about US $250.
If I go that route, I'll be paying 3/4 of the total cost of the deal on
freight, for a one-week delivery time
via air. Let's say that I'm perfectly happy to wait a month or two for the
machines to arrive slowly on
a boat. What options are available? I'd be interested in hearing anyone's
experiences in getting large
heavy items shipped overseas as economically as possible.
