  Well, big old electronic music stuff, US to London(180kg), US to
Spain(60kg), and vintage audio gear, US to Belgium(45kg)... I don't think
that the other way makes much difference.

 I have had the best service from Schenker International.... never a
problem, rates always among the lowest - and the have offices worldwide
that are (gasp!) all on the same network, so your local European office
knows what the destination people are doing. Makes it very nice.

US (Nevada) to London suburbs, Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer and accessories,
in a custom crate, 180KG all-up - US$324 air freight, door-to-door service
*including customs clearance in England* - five days from loading on my
end to unpacking at the customer's place.
