Shipping things home

Hi all,

I have some books I like to ship them to California. They are somewhat heavy and I don't want to deal with them through checked baggage. Does anyone know the most economical way of send such thing? Many thanks in advance.

Probably M-bag or Airmail Printed Papers:

Sea Freight would probably be the cheapest.

I shipped a large picture out to a friend in Washington a few years back and used an international home removal company to do it for me.

Lots of forms to fill in but it got there safe and sound :-) But it isn't the fastest route as you have to wait until they have a container with some space.
