Overnight Mail from UK

Hi All:

I have just received my ships registration. Problem is that it is in the UK and I am in the States. Can anyone recommend a way to get delivery of the papers in three or four days from West Yorkshire to the USA?

I guess I should have been more specific. The package is in Normanton and the closet place to drop Fedex is Leeds. Google Maps says it is a one hour roundtrip drive. I have a hard time asking someone a favor to do that for me. Fed Ex is the same. UPS is in Dewsbury which I'm told is closer but harder to get to. Does the postal system have any way of doing it?

Don't know about the UK but in the US, for an extra charge, you can schedule a pickup.

Post Office Airsure
They say it will be sent on the earliest flight and receive priority handling.
