Ship them via regular mail. Also, if there is a bus driver going from UK to Krakow, you can give them to him and pay a courier's fee. That usually works.

This morning i got my stuff from this guy:

Merged: REMOVALS FROM UK TO POLAND

Hi,

I will need to move some stuff over pretty soon, is there anyone on here that does removals form London to Poland, i probably only need half a transit van,

Any one else need to move some stuff and fancy splitting the cost?

Cheers

If it's only about half a transit then don't bother with moving companies. Go to a Polish shop and ask the people in there about it. Very often they will be taking a van back and forth to Poland to get stock and it's better for them to get some money taking stuff to Poland than driving with an empty load. I know that my friends that stayed in London often took stuff back to Poland for people if they had space and they were going anyway.

This often works out cheaper, you just need to ask :)

Pity.. A few years back i was driving between Leeds and Poland pretty often , i would have moved your stuff for free...

Try contacting the Polish people in the Leeds area , there are lots of them..

You could try the Polish center , or one of the Leeds Polish sites on the net , i have seen a few people advertising removals on there...

You could also try gumtree. There are always people travelling between Leeds and Poland. A private person will charge less than a company.

I've found this website - there are people going to Poland from Leeds and surrounding areas who are willing to take parcels, there may be someone going in a van.

There are many companies who can provide the service of removal from one location to another. You need to do some work on searching to find the best company for your to complete the job.

Merged: Moving items from UK to POLAND

Hi There

I'm just wondering if anyone can help

I need to move a lot of my stuff from the UK Kent area to POLAND Gdańsk area, quite a lot of boxes with general household goods.

Is there anybody who regularly travels there or will be travelling there at the Christmas period, obviously I'm looking for somebody who travels with a large van or lorry.

If anybody would be interested in helping out and of course earning some cash please contact me

Regards

Mark

Why not speak to the people in your local Polski skleps? I'd be amazed if at least some of their suppliers weren't going back to Poland with empty vans.

I'd vote with Harry - perhaps even a card on the Polski Sklep window. There are people running commercially between the UK and Poland - that's how we gpt all our stuff out here, but you have to be careful - our original "contractor" send a sub-c who was told a smaller amount than we'd said so he could not take it all, then there was a con going on where the sub-c was supposed to get cash in PL but the cont asked the customers to wire him the money --- luckily the driver called ahead to us from the German border to explain and make sure we had some cash for him, which we did, so he could buy the fuel to get here! The rest of our stuff was brough out a couple of weeks later by the orginal driver's son, for £100, on a shared load.
