Incoming shipment - advice needed.

Posted by SJ-190944 - Created: 14 years ago

We are having some personal belongings shipped out from South Africa to Marseilles, and wonder what sort of red tape to anticipate.  It's not a lot (about a cubic metre) and is mostly 10 year old wedding presents that have been sitting in the garage, the bulk of which is mother-in-law's home-made pottery. 

My husband will drive to Marseille to pick the boxes up, but he speaks virtually no French and I won't be able to accompany him to help out with translation.  We are reluctant to hire a clearing agent, as the shipment is not really worth that much, just sentimental value.  Has anyone else shipped things in, and do you have any advice?
