Question Shipping excess gear from Italy to Sydney?

Hey,

Just wondering if anybody has any words of advice on this matter. I have been staying in Italy for a while and have managed to accumulate more gear than i have room for I want to ship a box or 2 home buy the cheapest means available (i won't need it for a while). Does anybody know of any good, cheap companies that operate out of Italy (i'm based near Milan)? Any help would be appreciated as my Italian is pretty non existant.

Thanks
Jake

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
