Hi Hameso,

We're using Freightworld in Sheffield for 7 boxes and a couple of funny shaped ones (pictures etc). They were very efficient and reasonable.

No matter how you try shipping by air is not cheap. I do it all the time.
I have tried to compare prices but they all come out the same.
Trick is to make they boxes fit the smallest cubic space possible, and the right shape!! Price is done on cubic metre, and weight. But it is the cubic metre that is important, as if it is an odd size they price to nearest next cubic metre, so you pay for air!
6 boxes weighing 22kg each approximatley 1 cubic metre each, have just cost me approx £400. This was sent by UPS and arrived in three days from New York to UK.

22 boxes the same weight and size via ship from Hong Kong cost me £320 door to door service.
The shipping by sea took 19 days exactly.Advantage by air is you get it in about 3-4 days.

From UK?

It depends if it is just boxes that you can pack up yourself then there are many freight forwarders. Send me a PM and I will give you details of mine. if it is a house full odd sizes etc, you need a company that will box up price up and load into a container. This I do not wish to do my self!
