The cost of sending mail from the United States to England will vary depending on the type of mail you are sending, for example you may want to send a letter, padded envelope or a large package. The United States Postal Service (USPS) will cost $40 to send a 5 lb package to England first class.

It should usually take around six to 10 business days to arrive in the United Kingdom. However, you could send the same package through the express option which will cost up to $52 but will take between three to five business days to arrive. You need to keep in mind that the prices will vary depending on the weight and size of the mail you are sending.

The United States Postal Service isn’t the only provider that ships mail overseas. The United Parcel Service (UPS) is another option that you may want to consider. They generally operate at a faster speed than the USPS, the majority of transactions take around two to three business days. However, you will notice that it will be more costly to use this service as a 5 lb package will cost around $123 and will take three to five business days to arrive in the country.

Furthermore, you also have the option to use FedEx to ship mail to England. This particular service offers similar options to the United Parcel Service in terms on delivery options and costs. The rate is $123 for a 5 lb package which should take up to three to six business days to arrive, however you can pay $5 more to cut down the delivery time by three days.

You can also use an international package forwarder to send packages from the U.S. To the UK..

A package forwarder provides you with a mailing address in the US allowing you to shop a full range of stores. This helps if a store like Nordstrom won't ship internationally or if they're international shipping is too expensive.

A benefit of international package forwarders is they will allow you to consolidate packages from multiple stores and ship one box internationally.

To get an idea of pricing you would use theirinternational shipping calculator. Which will help you understand your options based on the actual weight or dimensional weight of your package.

To understand what your import duties and taxes would be you can use Duty Calculator to get an estimate.
