Moving from Zürich to Northeast US this summer? Want to split a 20ft crate?

My wife and I are moving to New Hampshire this summer (2015). We plan to ship our stuff roughly some time in June or July. We're currently getting quotes for a self-packed cube ($7K-$9K), but, the way things work, it's only about 50% more for a full service pack/unpack job on a 20 foot shipping crate ($11K-14K). I'm all about cooperation and creative sharing, so I figured that maybe there is someone in the same position as me. If you're moving at roughly the same time (June-August), to roughly the same place (East Coast US/Canada), maybe we can work together to save time or money, or maybe even both.

Figuring out customs stuff, timing, destination, and preparation will take a bit of creativity and back and forth, but I'm confident that we can make something work if there is anything worth making work. For example, the legality of many people per crate shouldn't be a problem as long as we all sign the manifest and label our boxes with our own names. If you think that there is something here for you, you can write me offline to moctodliamg at the same thing backwards. If you find that this post is a few months old by the time you read it, try writing me anyway.

best,
seth.

Hi Seth,

We are also moving to the US this summer, potentially to the Washington DC area. I sent a PM.

Hi Seth,
We are moving in May, but got a fairly low-priced quote for 8cbm. We booked this now for a fixed price of 4,5k $... Still need to look into the insurance option it seems according to my husband, but that seems a lot cheaper than what you got! Let me know, if you want the company contact we are moving with, if you haven't already booked your 20fter...

Hi, thanks for the advice. Haven't booked yet, still talking and matchmaking between the various people that have contacted me with different destinations and dates. I'm finding that the big reason to pool resources is so that we can get full service (movers do the packing) for the price of self service (I do the packing).
