Shipping quote

I had my car in for a service today and had the day off work.  My mum took me to run some errands.

We went to Pack and Send to get a firm quote on shipping some belongings to the UK and to collect the boxes to pack stuff in.  We've got 4 packing box sized boxes and 8 half that size.  Together they make up one cubic metre.  I was pleasantly surprised at the price quoted of $328 which is based on 200 kilos.  We wouldn't have that much!

There will also be charges at the receiving end (Liverpool) and for a courier to take the boxes to a friends' place.  We'll have an idea of those costs over the next week but it's less than we expected.
