Default Just One Box

Folks,

Trying to sort my stuff out for when I eventually move over to Oz. I will have one big box to ship over (I travel light) aside from my suitcase which will be on the plane with me. Any suggestions as to the cheapest method and approx cost. Basically will contain non essentials so the slow boat to china (or Oz) in this case will suffice

www.excess-baggage.com I used them to send one box,, "4.50 cu ft Tea Carton Dims 61 x 51 x 41cms 24 x 20 x 16inches ( each Carton carries the contents of approximately one & a half standard suitcase loads )"
and when it left here... it weighed in at 37kg's IT cost me £120.00 (boat not plane) no insurance as it is only knick knacks that wont get broken, might get lost tho *scratches head* me and my hind sight

Found them really helpful people

Daler,

From what I can gather we are going to be almost neighbours if you live in Oakleigh or Bentleigh
