Hi dli,

The way to get the best price is to contact a number of different shipping companies and ask for a quote.
Be sure to ask for a Cost Insurance Freight quote, which includes insurance and container freight charges as well as the cost. Also, get the quote in US dollars if you are contacting a Chinese shipping company. I recommend contacing both Chinese and US freight companies and comparing quotes. The best way to find them is to search Google for 'freight forwarder'.

You can also get an instant quote at Link hidden: Login to view. This probably won't be the cheapest though.

If you do your homework you could save up to $500.

Good luck :)


Grace
