    Hi there,

    Has anybody a cheap way to get goods shipped from China to Ireland (to port or to door). I have looked into freight forwarding (essentially shared containers) and multiple companies offer these services. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has positive feedback on the service and the price. This is for small scale package for personal use at the moment but I am looking at the possibility of making a business out of importing goods an dselling them in Ireland.

    Example package is a 14okg package, 240 x 130 x 30 cm with a value of approx 500 euro. Thats what I am trying to get here at present. And advice welcome
