I'm going to see Sturrocks at the airport tomorrow to discuss shipping my Dommie back to London. On the phone today they guessed about 6000 rand including dangerous goods form etc... It's 021 386 1256 and I spoke to Tony.
You in CT now?

Hello,

I sent my freight request including weight and size of the crate to 15-20 forewarders out of the Cape Town Yellow Pages and got around 5 solid offers around EUR 350,-- to 500,-- for ocean freight.

Best offer and great service came from

Trans Maritime Shipping
c/o Thrutainers International
31 Moody Avenue
Epping Industria 7460
Republic of South Africa

Contact person is Garry. Let him know that I sent you. In case of any questions you can also send me a German mail to wolfgang.niescher@gmx.net

Cheers,
Wolfgang
