Hi everyone – Becoming extremely frustrated trying to find someone – anyone – who does surface shipping to the USA for a package of books, just under 7kg. Unfortunately, the Royal Mail doesn't do anything over 2kg (and no, I am NOT sending four separate parcels). Time not of the essence.

Any suggestions?

Parcel force do it but looks like it's £90.00 GBP

Have you checked their printed paper rate rather than ordinary parcel?

You could split it into two parcels, send one 5kg & one 2kg – total cost £40.50 GBP. Use Royal Mail International Economy.

Provided it is only books or other printed papers that should be OK.
