Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I've now moved, and my stuff arrived yesteraday. It took a couple of months for it to get here, but it all seems to have arrived unscathed. The moving company I used had what they called "Laydown Wardrobe" boxes, which were basically long, flat carboard boxes (coffin shaped) into which one could layer about 10 suits, flat. This has meant that the suits arrived basically un-crinkled. Everything else was folded neatly, and put into plastic bags inside larger boxes, and it seems to have worked a treat. All in all, it wasn't too expensive to ship stuff by sea, but I didn't bring any furniture so I can't comment on that (sorry Kent).
