I'm moving to another country (Israel/Palestine to the Netherlands) and need to ship my personal effects. For the sake of discussion suppose I'm not shipping any furniture, and every single item fits into a large suitcase.
My plan so far is to use a shipping service, which fills up a container with multiple shippers' packages. But now I've made a curious discovery: It turns out that if I fly KLM, I can take as many as 10 pieces of checked luggage with me, with upto 23kg apiece. This might well cover all of my stuff - for less than 20% of the price. Sure, I might need to pay for transporting those bags to and from the airport, but it's still very cheap.
My question is - is this really feasible? Are there any 'catches' I'm missing? I'm very hesitant to try something like this since it seems kind of crazy.
