Default shipping - only need to take a small amount, how do we do this

Hi,

have been reading about people paying for a 20 ft container, we need to ship the equivilent of about 6 tea chests. We are not going to bother with furniture.

Has anyone just shipped a small amount like this and how much did it cost. This will mainly be our keepsakes etc.

Thanks Tara

IT WORKS IN THE UK!

I tried this

hold alt and keep holding down
press 1 then 5 then 6 and keep down
release all of them and finally you get a £ sign
