MOVING STUFF FROM fRANCE TO SINGAPORE

Postby Allibert » Sat, 09 Apr 2011 12:31 am

Anyone have any connections to et one pair of speakers transported from France to Singapore. So far the lowest quote obtained in France was EUR 450 for transport.

Anybody have anything lower?

Thanks,
alan

If they fit the size/weight restrictions, send them as a normal parcel from your post office. That is almost always the cheapest option!

Thanks but they're quite high value speakers and I wanted them to work when they get here and was hoping to get something in the range of EUR 100-150

Another option is to box up yourself, and then take yourself to an airline cargo-depot to freight. I.e. it is the door-to-door at either end that tends to cost $$

I don;t actually own them. I was intending to buy them there (the price is very reasonable) and have them sent here but am finding the trsnport quotation a bit high
