Best carrier for shipping frame from USA to UK?

I have a potential buyer for a high-end frame that I'm selling (LOOK 496 Pista). The guy is in the UK (Glasgow, Scotland). I just received an online quote for over $550 (ouch), which is obviously prohibitive no matter which of us eats the cost.

Suggestions?

I've used these guys for bikes I sold on eBay:

Worth a try to give them a call for an estimate.
