Default Shipping companies Doha

Hi guys

We are are planning to move from Doha to New Zealand early next year, and I am looking for a good shipping company. We have a few boxes of households items (no furniture). I appreciate if anyone can recommend a good and reliable company.

Thanks
Andrew

If it's just a few boxes of household items, why not excess baggage on QA? Really think through the value of your goods and the costs of shipping them.

For what i thought was well-priced shipping out of Qatar, try "E-movers". 4476-2244, ask for Antony Thomas.

We've just flown to Europe with four boxes approx 75x45x35 and four big cases, for three people. Excess cost was about 2000 AED. It's scary but doable. Just buy lots of tape and bubble wrap in C4!

good question
just don't like the hassle of carrying extra boxes on the top of baggage allowance. I like these to be delivered door to door.

To NZ the cost will be much more.

Well, sure, but compare the excess baggage costs to NZ with shipping costs.

Another vote for e-movers. They were great when I moved from Doha to UK

I twice moved back from Saudi to Europe and found Saudi Arabian Airlines very efficient.
Collected and delivered at the other end through an agent. Nit for me the hassle of flying with 200 kg excess baggage. Do it the east way.
