Default shipping boxes from UK to USA

My mum needs to send me some items before she and dad moves back home to Philippines. I reside in Texas USA.
She is sending me plates, knives, clothes, books, cups, toys, picture frames

i'm guestimating weight of each box to be about 20KG but i don't know the dimension of the boxes.

What door to door shipping company do you suggest she uses?

I have made similar small shipments three times since I moved to the US, and each time I just used a "freight forwarder". They will arrange the paperwork, insurance, and shipping, and usually (you will need to ask or check their web site) collect from your home. To find one just Google <freight forwarder "your town">.

hello!

You can search the FIDI website for a list of pre-vetted FAIM certified approved movers in your area, contact a few to ask about their shared load / groupage shipping services. Depending on how many boxes there are many international removal companies have a minimum chargeable volume so if it's just a few boxes this might not be cost effective for you so an excess baggage or freight forwarding company as suggested might be a better alternative unless you are also looking to have everything safely packed up?

Hope that helps?
