Great! Thanks for the quick reply. My expat friend doesn't yet know his way well around Cairo, if you happen to have their address, or phone number on you, would be great if you can let me have it. Thanks again for your help.

I donīt think that they would be able to as they look through your boxes before sealing them. plus it would be very very expensesive. Why not use an international shipper? they are reliable and fast.

When I moved here from Dubai, I found that all the international shippers had a minimum cost and since i travel light I did it myself at 1/10th of the cost.
Emirates were efficient and helpful.
I'm not sure Egypt is so user friendly - I couldn't even pick it up myself, BC had to hire DHL to get it from customs to Heliopolis

I would like to say that I used DHL, Fedex, TNT and Aramex and they were all reliable
The cheapest is Aramex (A company based in Dubai)
