: Any ex-pats have advice for shipping
: furniture to Ukraine. I will be relocating there for several years from
: the USA, and want to ship my household
It will cost you more to ship furniture here than to buy it here. Also, by the time you get it into an apartment, it may be damaged and probably won't fit as well as you think. If you have enough money to ship and protect your household furniture here, then you probably have enough to just buy really good Ukrainian furniture. I have lived in 8 apartments here for the past three years, and I wouldn't consider shipping any furniture here. But if you really want to, contact MEEST Shipping in Chicago. They do a decent job of shipping into Ukraine. It will cost around $1/pound.
