Air Freight for small amount of stuff?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I hope you're keeping well.

We are looking me and child going to Australia ahead of my husband, due to work and other commitments. Most of the house will get shipped later. I was thinking of shipping a small amount of personal effects like clothes, computer equipment, toys etc when we go - has anyone had any experience of this?

Thank you

TS

There's no really cheap way of sending air freight.   Essentially, what you're talking about is excess baggage.  There are several companies which handle it.

My company relocation policy includes some air freight, so it is something people do, but it is not cheap.  Seven seas do air shipping of boxes, so many take a look on their to get an idea of costs.  For us 5 standard boxes to Perth would be £475 for example, vs £140 by sea.  It still takes a few weeks by the looks of it, presumably shared air freight containers.

I know PSS can send over small amounts and their prices are supposed to be excellent compared to excess baggage
