    Anyone have any experience with this?

    I am moving over to Canada and only have a 20 kg limit. I want to ship some extra suitcases etc over and don't want to pay the incredible excess baggage costs (€5/kilo) One extra suitcase is going to cost over a hundred Euro's and I have a few.

    Does anyone know of any international shippers based in Ireland that would do this kind of thing. I tried DHL, but they don't do personal effects.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try Oman

    www.oman.ie

    We used them when moving abroad. Depending on how much stuff you have it could be what you're looking for.

    Only €5 per Kg to Canada - that's not bad when compared to your weight.
    Ryanair want more than for Dublin-London rip [/rant]

    Check with the airline as some handle freight - but you would have to deliver and collect it at different times to when you fly.

    Are you certain it is 20kg?

    Try "Mailboxes Etc" in Rathmines and http://www.postnet.ie/

    Normally trans atlantic flights have a limit of 50-odd Kg FFS ryanair has a limit of 32 Kg, I think you have it wrong.

    Some transatlantic are 40kg. I think Ryanair is well less than 32kg.

    Ryanair provide a free checked baggage allowance up to a maximum of 15 kilos to each passenger

    Plus 10 Kg in the cabin.... Sorry I was wrong. a total of 25.


    Northwest airlines says the following Economy class passengers will be permitted to check up to two bags at 50 lbs/32 kgs. Bags that exceed the free allowance and weigh between 50 and 70 lbs will be assessed the applicable overweight fee. USD $35.00/EUR $35.00
