UPS and FEDEX want $400+ to ship 35lb. I have an antique chess board, some of my little girls bedroom decorations and some other things we want to bring as we are moving abroad. We either ship it or sell it with the rest of our stuff. It seems to be cheaper to just sell everything and re purchase when we get there. However, some things will be difficult to replace. On the other hand we cannot afford that kind of cost on top of moving. Thanks.
