Thread: Need shipping company to send Red Deer heads/antlers to US from Scotland

    Need shipping company to send Red Deer heads/antlers to US from Scotland

    I am trying to find a good shipping company near Edinburgh airport, or in Perthshire, or near Dundee, that is experienced in shipping prepared red deer heads with antlers by air freight. Do any of you have experience in shipping to international clients, friends or stalkers? I also need to either pack them myself or hire someone to do it.
    The airlines used to let us check them in as baggage, but now they either do not allow it or their fees are over the top.
    I appreciate your help. Thank you.

    See below, perhaps they can arrange for it to be collected from where it is located at the moment?
    Worth a call.

    Hi PKL and Richard, Thanks for the replies. The antlers are walking around on the hill, getting ready for the rut. If all goes well, we will have five sets, all boiled out and tines protected by garden hose and tape, to ship home to the US. I hope to deliver them to a freight company before flying home from EDI. I have asked around somewhat, but I thought some of you avid stalkers might have a tip for me.
    ​Thanks, Jon

    +1 for Rainbow. They did a good job for me with stuff from South Africa, although the latest taxidermist I am using out there said that DHL was his choice.

    Thanks for that, Goathunter! Is there a local freight office anywhere in Perth? There must be, given the businesses there. Just thinking I don't need to carry them to the airport. Jon

    If you are still looking for a shipper let me know,I have been involved in moving for a number of years.
    Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a 'orrible c@#t, me.
