Default Best way to ship my hand tools

Just wondering wht would be the best way to ship my hand tools. Im an electrician so there will be my best hand tools,drill and test meters. Maybe 20-25kg weight wise. Was going to put it in my luggage but not sure i can fit it all in. We arnt shipping any other gear and i could probably manage without them until we go(use my old gear). Any ideas???

Dont bother with any 110V transformers they are not a requirment here on site, all sites here use RCD's for protection.

We got the double baggage allowance so i packed 40Kg of tools in to 2 plastic carry tool boxes i had bought for the trip.
If you want to pad anything out inside the boxes don't used paper as xray can't see through wads of paper , as i found out when i brought tools over the 1st time !!
