    Shipping my stuff back to United Kingdom

    I'm looking to ship a load of clothes, books and bits and pieces back to London from Moscow. Maybe around 130kg worth of stuff.

    Can anyone suggest a good value company to use?

    aha.. I too checked this site as was curious to check rates and this seems quite acceptable pricing..
    I assume the delivery time estimates may vary though significantly ?

    It seems they will do delivery at the address after clearing customs and not call the addressee at the customs office.. if this is the case prices are great (and not only good).

    and don-t forget, they want to see what you are sending. so put all your things into boxes, but do not tape them....best is also buy the special postoffice delivery boxes. they are sturdy and will take a beating and throwing around that DOES happen here or there....
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Agree with this..
    I checked in the local post office and they have boxes of various sizes available..the biggest which could handle about 16kgs was priced about Rub 160..so not so bad for a sturdy box meeting all postal specs.
