Sharing a shipping container!! Zürich-Melbourne

hey everyone so we've given up on switzerland and are moving back to Melbourne. I've rang about shipping containers and the minimum, about 2 cubic meters, cost 2500CHF; however, to get a whole container, 20 cubic meters, is only about 6000 CHF. We're really flexible but planning a move in April 2012 and are hoping we can find some people interested in perhaps sharing a section of the container and helping with the price

Seems like some information is missing. But maybe its just me. It's just that I am in the process of having my things shipped to Canada. The info that I have is that there are two sizes of containers, 20 foot and 40 foot. We have a 20 foot, and it will hold 30 cubic meters, although it is rare to be completely filled. And we have gotten three different quotes, and all of them came in at around the same price, which is more then double your quote of 6000. So not sure where you got the 20 cubic meters at 6000.
