Default Container from Toronto

Hi,
Can anybody recommend a good shipping company? I am sending a 20" container from Toronto to Dubai.


Thank you in advance,

Paul

If you can get some friends etc. to help pack (or a local co.) you could take a look at www.upakweship.com.

Apart from that I can't help.

I might try them from France to Dubai soon.

Good luck

Thank you Jezza, I have checked with a local office here in Toronto. It seems like they know what they're doing, but an estimation cost was about 25% higher then with other company.
I think there is no a direct sea connection between North America and Middle East, I mean, apparently they have to arrange delivery between a few companies. I'm afraid that the situation is even more specific for Canada. The stuff should work better for Europe.

Jezza, good luck with your move!

Well if it's only 20" long, I would advise you pack it yourself and put it in your carry on, it will keep your toblerone company.
Spinal Tap and Stonehenge come to mind!
