UCrate alternative
Hi all,
I'm moving to the UK next March via Cunard's Queen Victoria so I'll be able to take loads of bags with me on the ship. Since I also don't have a collection of Luis XV vintage furniture, I didn't want to spend tons of money on shipping. I found this new service from Upack-WeShip (which has had some mixed reviews I'll admit); however, this is a crate that you pack and lock and they'll ship to your UK address. So we're packing books etc in plastic containers (from Staples) and have quite a bit of space to pack our sound system (expensive to replace), computers, monitors (big nice and shiny), some bulky bedding and telescopes.
They have two sizes 50 & 100 cu, you take your stuff to their location and pack it yourself, it is then delivered to your UK address.their info below:
