Moving to Spain

I will be moving to near to Madrid in January as I just had a job offer. I need to find the cheapest way possible really to move my stuff down. I don't have furniture, its just clothes, junk, books, TV etc etc. Probably less, way less than a transit van.

Anyone got any ideas?
Renting a van is really expensive, removal company 160 per hour (on a 30 hour road trip there and back....no thanks).

Re: Moving to Spain

If you search this forum you will find that the Swiss post office parcel tariff, is the cheapest way.

Re: Moving to Spain

Junk the junk, make sure the TV will work before moving it, and books, sort them out 80% you'll never look at again as you'll buy new ones and we all know new books are more interesting than books that have already been read !

Re: Moving to Spain
