Re: Have any mamas shipped books to Germany?

I have multiple boxes of books to ship over a few hundred pounds. I have about 6 avon boxes full of book, that would be at least 15 flat rate boxes at 60 dollars per box and the size is very restrictive, so not likely to get anywhere near 20 pounds worth of books in such a small box.

The m bag goes by weight if you are looking at 20 pounds of books it is closer to 150 per m bag not 50 dollars.

But the M bags are being phased out, by weight is now a cheaper option.

I am looking to ship a whole library or books for my kids hundreds of books, not just a few paper backs. Hence looking into commercial shipping companies.

My mom went to the post and was told it was more to send via m bag closer to 150 versus by weight at around 120 for 20 pounds. Ill ask her to check again.

International shipping is not cheap we pay 80 to 130 each time I get a box from home.
