Shipping furniture overseas need help!
I'm moving to Europe next month from the America, I'm shipping my furniture and wanted some feedback from anyone that has done this, what was the best way for you? What type of packing material did you use? We have heard some horror stories from people who have done this with professional movers. HELP!!!!

You mean you're not using a professional mover? Why not? If not, can't help you. Bubble wrap? <BR><BR>Sounds like you need more help than how to ship furniture. Where are you moving to? Why? Do you have the proper papers? <BR><BR>I know quite a few people who have successfully crossed the ocean with professional movers. There are all kinds of websites to help out with this kind of move, plus the relevant embassies usually have tips as well. Why are you so clueless? Where are you going, and why and when?<BR><BR>What do you mean "from the America?"

I seriously believe you DO need help xxx. I do not think everyone is moving from America to Europe, so you can't really ask them what kind of packing material they used if they have never moved there. Hmm....

If this question is genuine, you might try asking it on "People on the Go," a forum for people who have moved to another country. Here's the link to their home page: About 1/3 of them are people who moved to Canada from Europe or elswhere, but there are others who moved TO europe and to or from other places.
