Have some interest in my TurboColor slabs from the UK, but have no idea the best way to ship it. USPS Priority quotes me 120USD, which is a lot, so I wanted to see if our UK friends in here had any better solutions.

I've received some heavy stuff from USA to Italy and USPS was always the more economical and safe way.

Moreover (this maybe off-topic) let me take the opportunity to add some experiences about a shipping of a TurboColor.
I've received mine from very near (EU to EU) and after the shipment I've found the CPU unplugged from the motherboard. Fortunately I was able to realign all the pins and put it back at work.

So maybe is the case to see also how to prevent this risk.

Yes, I think it is a really unusual eventuality. Nobody had similar experience?

Ugh. I thought that with new stuff they put more attention.
