      I am looking to order some products from China which will cost me around $300, however the manufacturer has informed me it will cost about $850 for air freight to the UK, and even more by sea.

      I've only ordered smaller items from china before using air freight at around $100, but although these products are quite light, the size of them have made the freight costs so high that it's not worth it.

      I was informed that I might be able to find a freight forwarder who can save on costs, however the one I found from Google quoted me even more, around $1000.

      I've also tried finding a UK/European manufacturer, as I assumed the extra product cost may be worth the savings in shipping, but I've been completely unable to find a manufacturer who produces the product I'm looking for with Google or Alibaba.

      My question is there any way I might be able to save on shipping? Or does anyone have any tips on finding a UK/European manufacturer? I believe there most be some as I've seen similar products on Amazon claiming they're manufactured in the UK, but I haven't been able to find who is manufacturing them.
