We're relocating from HK to Chicago late next month. I have so far contacted Allied Pickfords, Crown and Transword. No response from Transworld, Crown wants to do a survey and Allied Pickfords quoted me $85K (!!!) for a 20 foot container, about $25K for 100 cubic feet.
We have an 800 square foot apartment with some furniture and the usual clothes, pictures, etc, so do you think this would fit into an 100 cubic feet? I have seen posts here about working with the shipping companies directly to save money, but would they then be able to pack for us? We are too busy at the moment to really deal with the move and packing, picking up boxes, etc.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
