Default Shipping from Japan

Does anyone have any experience sending medium sized items from Japan (or Asian countries) to Canada?

I have some seats. I need to send them back toCalgary. I'm looking for a door-to-door shipping company that offers surface shipping (price is a concern, how long it takes isn't).

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I ordered a couple of stuff From Malaysia ... (pretty close to japan) via UPS, and it takes 4-5 days.

im talking about gauges, im sure an actual seat would take a bit more time, but this will give you an idea

The seats are too big for Japan's post office, so that is out of the question.


UPS only does airmail out of Japan. The cost is way too high (about $800).

Then call up a local freight forwarder and have them ship it in a container for you. They will take care of all the documents and stuff and I am pretty sure they are much cheaper then UPS. I ship stuff using FF all the time for big equipments and had no problems with them. They take care of all the work for you. Hope this helps
