Engine shipping - Help.

Hey
Can anyone suggest a logistics company in the Washington DC area that can pick pick up, crate and ship to the UK.

I have an straight six engine that needs picking up from Falls Church, VA (just south of DC), crated and shipped to the UK.

Thanks
Steve

Jag XK?
If so I see why you want to ship back.

Suggest DHL for actual shipping.

Good guess, it's a DBS -6cyl engine. (Not mine - my Astons were sold to put kids through college)

Still looking for suggestions on local VA/DC logistics company that could offer a turnkey service……..pick up, crating and shipping to the UK.
Cheers
