why don't you check out the post office in his area? EMS offers less expensive shipping than the other carriers, caveat is they take time to deliver...

I am working on a retail shop and found out that the cheapest way to have items shipped is via DHL - aside from cheap, it is safe and you can even track the package itself online.

Good luck!

In Melbourne. It's all just clothes and things no furniture or anything big. Looked up fed ex but for 20kg they quoted me over $300! HELPPPPP!!
Couple of alternatives Danielle,
Reduce the baggage....
Does he really need to take so much from home...he can buy in Australia if needed.
Probably need some warmer clothes anyway....?
Look for an airline that offers pre-purchased "additional baggage allowance".
Quite cheap and the bags travel on the same flight.
Our family uses Air Asia with more than 100kg additional allowance....less than $1 per kg overall.
Think about an upgrade to business class - better luggage allowance and options....often for only a few dollars more on discount fares.

Hope this helps....

Good luck
