Post Shipping companies - have quotes, reviews welcome!

Hi,

We are moving from BC, Canada back to Ireland (Republic) in March. I've started getting some quotes from shipping companies, thought I would list them here just in case they are of interest to anyone else. Also, would love to hear any reviews/experiences anyone has had with any of these (particularly TheMIGroup - couldn't find much on them on the net).
Williams $13510
TheMIGroup $14980
Mordano $15605
Tippet-Richardson $12320
AMJ Campbell $9975
Euro Transport US$4480 (warning, apparently this company are a scam!)

Cheers!

Wow, you could refurnish a house almost for some of those quotes. Are you taking the whole house full of furniture back?

Oh, sorry, should have said, quotes are for a 20-foot exclusive container, professional packing/unpacking included.

Yes, they are - but we are taking pretty much all the furniture from our 3-bed house. We sat down with the IKEA Dublin website & costed out how much it would be to replace everything, and it came out to 14000 Euro - and the stuff we have is better quality. So, it should be just about worth it. I'm also hoping to use the AMJ quote to bargain down TheMIGroup.

We used MI Group from Toronto to Northern Ireland last year they weren't the cheapest but they did an excellent job Also they matched the cheaper quote we got from Tippett Richardson all we had to do was ask

UPDATE: I used the AMJ quote to bargain with Williams. They have matched it (actually bettered it - their new estimate is $7000-9000). They have a great reputation so we're going to go with them. Will update again after the move!
