Q: Shipping framed pictures back home?

I want to ship some framed paintings and pictures back home (about 50x60cm) and have really no clue which company might do this best without destroying everything. It cost me quite a bit to do this here, and would literally cost me a fortune to do it back home.

anyone have any good recommendations?

If I were you, I would try hard to locate a freight forwarder in or near the city where you are at, and go and see him / her and ask for their advise in shipping those back home.  I would take a photo, dimensions and weigth of each one to them, so they can give you a quote for crating them and also the shipping and documentation part.

By Law in China you can not take out any real old painting, ceramic vase or artifact in general that could be consider a national patrimony, the freight forwarder should know how to clear that step to insure delivery later on.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
