For the last few days, I’ve been trying to find a quote to send all our packed stuff (clothing, books, photos etc.) to Jakarta via sea freight. The quotes are around the $1200 – $1700 range for 5 boxes of 18" x 18" x 22", door to door delivery. I’m not sure if that’s a good price or not, considering we could probably purchase everything in the box for that price :) (I guess it’s still better than us trying to balance carrying 5 boxes and 3 luggages going back to Indo :) ).

The most interesting part was that one company suggested I talk to Fedex. I always thought this wouldn’t be much help, thinking that air freight would cost a ton of money (I did the online quote, and it turned out to be almost $5000 !!!). But anyway, I called in and talked to a rep, and to my surprise, he brought the price down to about $1700, door to door delivery within 1 week!. A very interesting quote indeed. So, we’re still deciding on whether to send it Fedex or just try to get the cheapest sea freight shipment.

Next up, flight tickets :)
