Have an exercise bike,  7 framed pictures and a mixer that I want to ship to Florida. Any practical suggestions other than the local movers?

Probably cheaper to replace the bike and mixer than what it may cost to ship.

I agree Bob but wanted to supply approximate cost for the person requesting the items. Figured if I shipped them, I should check on shipping the framed pictures also.

How this works is that unless the shipping company builds the packing materials to an international code, they will not be insurarable. For some, they take the risk and try to make sure they are only carried by air ride equipped trucks. These are not insurable either. So it comes down to the reputation of the freight company.

Sebastian Export is one of them in Tlaquepaque at the end of Independencia 33 3639 9297. There are others but I do not have their names or numbers handly
I have used them to hip to the States.. all artesania o they know how to pack very well.. It is not cheap but they have never brokenanything or loss anything we have shipped. Speak with Marcela.

It will probably be cheaper to take the pictures in a couple of picture boxes as excess luggage. That's what the Mexicans do all the time.
