It's looking like I will be spending the fall semester in England. When the term is done, I plan on taking a few weeks to go visit some friends in Italy. However, I don't want to travel with all my school stuff, so I'd like to mail some of it home (back to Canada). Can anyone recommend a good way to ship a box or two from the UK to Canada? Any idea what the shipping rates are like?
Sevenseas worldwide are really good - I have used this comopany twice to send stuff between the Uk and new zealand and they are really efficient. they text or email you with updates as to the progres of your order and you can check on line the location of your items. i looked at other shiping companies and they seemed to do the best deal.
thanks for the reply. is that a pretty standard rate, or are there other cheaper options out there?
between NZ and the Uk they were the cheapest option that I found, but you may have more options to canada. they are pretty well establihsed though so i reckon they would be competitive for most destinations.
Check what Royal Mail charges, this would be a good benchmark.
