Container Shipping Aircraft Parts

Hi All, would appreciate some advice from those that have done it. I'm about to ship my Christen Eagle project from California to Austria. It consists of the fuselage and parts in kit form to complete my build, all new, never registered. There's no engine, just airframe parts. I plan to ship it all in a 20 foot container. Any advice on companies to use and paperwork requirements for customs would be greatly appreciated.
All the best

I've shipped 2 aircraft from the Maule Factory in Georgia to the UK the most recent being last March. The shipper contact below handled all the paperwork and gave the best price, they ship all the Maule aircraft for overseas delivery via container. If you call Donna she'll give you all the info you need.

I'd recommend Skyview Aviation at Tracy (about 40 miles from SF Bay).
They shipped an RV that I sold a few years ago and seemed to do a good job.
