Shipping from the US?

Postby captainamerica » Wed, 04 May 2011 4:48 am

I'm relocating to Singapore from Chicago in July. I can take most of my things in 3 checked bags on the plane, but might need to ship a couple boxes as well.

What is the cheapest way to Ship from the US to Singapore? I don't really care how long it takes. FedEX/UPS/DHL? Or some specialized carrier?

Let me know. Thanks!

The US Postal Service with shipment tracing is the least expensive. Unless you can find someone else moving with a regular shipment you can tag onto.

Once you have the postal service quote, see how much more for extra bags for your flight. One of these two will be the cheapest.
