Just looking for a quick response here....after meeting dozens of moving companies...and getting lots of really expensive quotes, I've decided to sell the furniture and buy in France.
Of course, I never doubted anyone on this site for a minute as you told me so;)

But still need to ship clothes, smaller items and considering the US post office. It's actually cheaper and faster.
50lbs (23kg) around $150. 10 boxes = $1500 - and I get my crap in 5-10 days via air freight. Does anyone disagree? Are there gotchas that I need to be aware of with customs? Seems like an awful lot of "process" with these big moving companies and I have plenty of time to be packing.

Thank you!

One other option might be to contact one of those Shipping stores (usually part of a chain) that has access to all the various methods of shipping - from the Post Office to UPS and FedEx. They seem to do a very good job of selecting the most effective and economical means for shipping a relatively small quantity of stuff.
Cheers,
Bev
