Hello everybody,
I am looking for a shipping company from Germany. I have checked Sevenseas but shipping from Germany is much more expensive than from UK. 4 large boxes from London to Sydney cost 170£, while same boxes from Germany cost more than 400€ - almost two times more. DHL is also very expensive...
Has anybody shipped their things from Germany?

Fedex - DHL - all those are for express shipping. is you send threw the sea you'll find the prices much lower , and a longer shipping.
BTW try ordering boxes online (Tmart\ebay) should be pretty cheap . :thumb:

Thanks! I was hoping there will be as many options and as cheap as from UK, but I guess that is just impossible...

Hi I have shipped my 15 boxes from Switzerland last week. With move corp uk. Costs below 1000 euro.
It takes around 3 months to reach sydney.

was the pricing by wight or by volume?
Pricing is by volume. Boxes are about the size of IKEA boxes. 25 kilo each.

It is almost the same price for 5 or 10 or 15 boxes.
