Hello ExpatArrivals,

I am looking to immigrate to Kenya in late fall of 2014 and will be needing to ship a container of belongings (specifically from Madison, WI to Eldoret, Kenya). Does anyone have any recommendations for the most efficient and cost effective method in doing this?

Thanks very much for any insight and advice anyone may be able to offer!

Hi Tessa

While we wait for more input, I'd recommend having a look at our Shipping and Removals in Kenya page to get a better idea of what the process entails.

You want to find a shipping company that offers affordable but reputable services. It seems like you have a fair amount of options for companies in Wisconsin, so you could compare quotes, look at customer reviews or ask people you know who moved overseas about the companies they used.

Best of luck,
