how much would shipping a package from the UK cost?

There is something i really want to order, but right now its only in the UK and will not be in the USA until late November. I dont want to wait that long .
So if its at all reasonably economical, ide like to see if I can convince those englishmen to ship it over to NH .
The package is roughly 16 inches in length, 8 inches wide, 5 inches tall.
It weighgs roughly 24 pounds.
Going to NH.
Can somebody give me some estimate of what it might cost?

Twenty four pounds! Unless this will make your junior year dissapear you'd better wait until November. It'll cost you a lot of money. DHL would be about $195. Royal mail has a 2kg limit for Airmail packages. UPS will most likely be similar to DHL. Wait, it's not such a long time.

Ziemas is right....I once shipped a computer book (what can that weigh, 1.0 pound?) The book cost $18, the shipping was about $25.
