I'm emigrating in February (me, myself and I) but as I'm renting out my flat fully furnished when I leave, I'm taking out a relatively small amount of belongings. This will primarily include clothes, shoes and bags (!!) but also some personal effects like bedding, cushions, ornaments that mean something to me, some mugs, a printer, pictures and throws. Things that will help make my new home feel like home, but nothing particularly practical! On saying that, I'm also seriously considering taking my cordless dyson since I can just use a plug adapter!!! (though people may have advice on that too!)
What would be your advice on the route to take for shipping such a small amount of stuff? I won't have an address to ship it out to immediately, so it will likely go up to my Mums, which means I'll have to pack it myself so wont need that service from a company.
I'm based in Scotland, so any experiences would be much appreciated :)
