Hi,
We are moving back to Canada in July (from SW France). Can anyone recommend a method of shipping or a shipper that they know of to ship some of our belongings. We are only looking at a few boxes or a few large suitcases. They do not have to ship fast, just Cheap.
Thanks
Patty

Check into what it will cost you to mail them (yes, La Poste). I know of several people who have mailed boxes of stuff to themselves and apparently have saved a considerable sum.

Or, see what UPS would charge you (via their website). For non-rush service their rates are very competitive.
Cheers,
Bev

I've sent boxes of sports equipment (odd shaped and large) to the US from France via La Poste and got a very good rate. In fact, it was much cheaper to ship from France to the US then the other way around. I find that the post workers will generally help you choose the least expensive way if you ask nicely.

Cheers
