This will be a cheaper option, although isnt necessarily as fast as an exclusive use container.

We use a company called UniGroup for people we are moving to or from the USA.

Will do, we have everything in the garage ready for two hired movers to carry into the 30' into the container. When you have moved a lot of times you get the hang of packing well - if everything is in a box the actual moving part goes really quickly. We always hire help from eMove or similar site.
