Transport wheels to Australia - Any Ideas?

A friend in Australia would like to have 4 car alloy wheels (total 40kgs - boxed individually in cases 50x50x25cm) collected in CH and shipped to home. Anyone have a cheap method of doing this?

TNT have quoted AUD$1,700 in Australia to do this - crazy price.

Re: Transport wheels to Australia - Any Ideas?

freight , or on the boat. so contact those companies and see ahat they quote you.
You can also contact this guy.
He has a container going back to NZ....I assume it is cheaper from NZ to Australia ?

Anyone moving to New Zealand and want to share a shipping container?

I don't know the best method of shipping, but how they are packaged is very important if you want them to arrive unscathed.

Anthony - No Reply from the guy on the link you gave me - perhaps he is already in NZ.
