Anyone know a good shipping agent in the UK? I have a consignment of goods being sent there from Indonesia. I'm a UK resident but won't be back there until June. The goods will arrive back just before I do & I need an agent to handle all of the admin.

Cadogan-Tate are good people. They did very well to satisfy problems caused by the stooges who handled things from Germany when I moved to the UK.

we used pickfords to ship stuff out of the uk and their service was fine except for the time taken (which was a few weeks more than they estimated). in particular, they sub-contracted the chilean work to a company here that was very helpful and professional (exceptionally so, i think). i don't know what "shipping agent" means exactly, but i would guess that they do it (ie they're competent at managing international shipping).
