Default share a shipping container from oakland to maui in July???

The quotes we are getting is around $5000 door to door 20 foot container. We don't have so much stuff to fill a 20 ft. Thought maybe we could lower the cost by sharing. We are moving to Maui July 15. We are open to send our things whenever in the month. We are sending our queen mattress, bunk beds, futon, desk and kitchen things. email me please if this interests you.

$5000 will buy a lot of new island-style furniture. Sell or throw out most of what you have and ship only the most needed items via USPS flat-rate shipping boxes.

We used ABF for our second move back to Oahu and we just got one of the smaller 2500lb or so containers. We learned from the first move that it's better to sell EVERYTHING and just hit up Craigslist when you get here. We shipped so much here and back to the mainland our first time here it was crazy. We paid more to ship everything than it was all worth. Stupid!

We got a lot into the ABF and it was about $2k to get it here. Wasn't too bad since we stuffed the thing. Actually had way more than we should have, but they were cool about the weight being over.

Default Still looking to share?

July is almost over, so you may have already worked this out. We have already moved to Oahu, but would like to bring over some stuff we left in storage. We probably wouldn't be ready until September. I don't know if Matson (?) will unload half a container at different Hawaii ports. Please let me know if you are interested, and think this is doable.
