Default Moving back from Canada to NI - shipping and other advice

Hi Folks

When moving out to Canada from Northern Ireland we used Pickfords to move our belongings. We had our own 20ft container which just about held everything.
Who have you guys used? Can you suggest anybody else?
Is the process any different when your moving back across the Atlantic.
We still have the majority of our stuff in the original moving boxes so I dont think it would be a big job for us to fill a container.

Regards

I'd suggest asking in the MBTTUK part of BE - people that have moved back to the UK... Most in the Canada forum are moving TO here

Thanks Siouxie

Perhaps as a moderator you could move my original question over to that section?

No idea about prices but I would certainly also check other companies across the whole of Ireland. I've heard of Prolink and of course there are many others.
