It's been said many times on here that even though they'll take your money for it Parcel Force don't insure musical instruments in their small print.

I sent an amp head to the USA a few years ago; it worked out vastly cheaper for the buyer to organise FedEx to come collect it. It worked very well and cost $72.

Yep, watch out for Parcel Force not insuring it and I genuinely think you'd be lucky to get cheaper than that 'IF' you are shipping it as a whole/bolted together bass; you'd be able to send it MUCH cheaper if you unbolted the neck! ;)

All the cost is in the insurance. You can get a bass to the US for under £50 but it could cost you that again, or more, on insurance.

I'm not sure if they deal direct with 'ordinary' people but Parcelflight offer a good broker service. Go to their site, put in your weight and dimensions, choose economy and click to the next page where you can insure up to £3K.
