Shipping from UK

There are some US web sites that allows you to set up a fake address so you can make one consignment to ship from the US to other countries. I wonder if something similar exists in the UK?

Haven't tried any of these, but here are the first 5 that come up in Google (assuming a service like this is what you meant)...

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I had Googled it, I was curious as to actual experiences. I was overly lazy, or actually hurried, when I entered the post. My apologies.

I'd be intersted to hear any as well, just for future reference. So far I've not encountered a vendor large or small in the UK that wouldn't ship me something.

It is probably not the vendor, but the supplier of the good that limits their shipping. Actually that is in violation of EU rules but that is too much of a hassle to deal with, simpler to use a consignment. Happens fairly often on Amazon when you want the latest in electronics.

Could you help me with that one?
Looking for a website that forwards stuff from the US to Australia.
It's stupid how many restrictions there are to Amazon.
