I was learning in yeshiva in Israel for the past few years and I am moving back to the states (NY specifically). I have a lot of Seforim there and would like to bring them back but I have too many to pack with everything else. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to ship them? I would like to share a spot on a lift if anyone knows anyone sending one. Please let me know if you have an idea for me.
Can you ship them as cargo via ship?
There was a lengthy thread on the identical question about 2 or 3 years ago….unless some of these seforim are rare or high value items, using any commercial shipper via cargo ship is the lowest cost option, especially if you are able to find a shipper looking for smaller items fill a container. If you are concerned about reliability and timely delivery than a shipper like DHL can provide “as available” air cargo shipment at a higher cost but with real time tracking and more certainty. Really depends on the value of these seforim to you and how difficult they would be to replace if lost or damaged.
Sta in Israel, then you won’t have to worry about it.
Not helpful Takamamash, I wasn’t asking advice about leaving so I’d appreciate it if you would kindly keep your aimless opinions to yourself. Gadolhador do you know of any commercial shippers? I’d rather not pay through the roof with air cargo. I also heard that some Jewish bookstores get shipments in from Israel and they sometimes allow for people to share some space but I don’t have any information as to whom to speak with about that.
Contact mannys bookstore or feldheim books. I believe they are familiar.
