Freight to Canada (WestJet)

Hi,

I hope this is in the right section of boards.

I used WestJet Cargo to ship home extra bags that I had from Vancouver to Dublin at Christmas. I am moving back and seeing if they do the same offer for Dublin to Vancouver.

I have called the number on the WestJet Cargo site but that is just the hold depot for cargo that has arrived already.

Does anyone know where they work out of in Dublin? Or alternatively a fright company that would be close to the WestJet prices that would ship to Vancouver?

Thanks for the help!

Shop around (DHL, Fedex, UPS, etc.), but look for their 'slow' service instead of the next day service.

Air Canada fly this route direct now. Not sure how much baggage or weight your bringing but it could travel with you if it's a reasonable amount.

Would An Post be any use at sending large packages (baggage) or should they be avoided?

There are limits for what they will take in ordinary post.

They have an arrangement with, I think, UPS for larger items.
