as a guide a full 20ft container door/door will be in the region of £1800 to £2000

this should hold 25 to 30cbm depending on loading

so this should be of help...do not get ripped off coming home

If it's literally just a few boxes, then you can't do better than Fast Lane International ( www.wedelivertheworld.co.uk ). Very reasonably priced, quick & reliable, and delivered to your door in UK. The boxes will go out via your nearest TNT depot.

Hi there

We have just arranged to have 6 tea chest boxes with our personal affects stored then to be sent on to Spain later in the year. We contacted many companies and without hesitation of a doubt andreas@cyprusgloballogistics.com was the best. Every query and question was replied almost by return. The quote was favourable, but the service we have received far outshone any of the others. Certainly worth asking for a quote. Good luck. J

You can send goods back the UK in shared containers which some companies call 'groupage'. Most companies would like to send someone round to have a look at what you would like to send so they can find out the 'volume' and that way they can give you a price.

Peter Morton Removals, in Paphos offer these services and good prices!

Their phone number is 26923588 or email petermortonremovals@cytanet.com.cy

Hope this helps!

Hi Mr Abe,

You'll need to be more specific regards 'a few boxes' before shipping firms will give you a quote. They work on filling containers. Assuming your few boxes won't fill a container then firms will look at consolidating a load, basically your boxes will share a container with other peoples goods. Once you know how many and what space your boxes will take up you can then shop around for the best prices - don't accept the first quotes from firms haggle the price down and don't forget insurance cover.
