Default Brit needs help from a New Yorker !!

Looking for a kindly soul to help me out with a problem.

Just bought a large Kepco PSU off ebay as I need a part off it , but not the whole PSU. Naively I hoped the seller would just remove the part I need and ship that to me , it's a 2 minute job at the most and he would have got to keep or sell the unit again.
Well , it seems he won't !!

Problem is that the PSU weighs like 60 Lbs or so and this guy won't use anything but UPS , which to the UK is over $300 !!
The part I need off the PSU is less than a Lb in weight and would cost very little to mail to the UK. It's attached to the rear of the supply with 2 screws and just needs those removed to unplug it.

What I'm asking is for someone living in the New York area to take delivery of the PSU , remove the connector from the back and mail it to me in the UK. I will pay for everything and the person gets to keep the PSU !! That way I can keep the cost's down to an acceptable level. The NY zip for the seller is 14420.

The PSU in question is a Kepco ATE 55-10e.

Anyone up for it ?

Hi- I'm in the Philadelphia area, about 70 miles from NYC. I see that it's $25.49 to ship the thing to me, according to the estimate provided in the auction info. If that's of any help, let me know. I shouldn't be doing this, because I've already got too much 'good stuff'. I'll do it if you can't find someone closer to lower your costs.
