Shipping Heavy Items - Multiple Boxes for one product

So here's my problem - a few of the items in my store come as packages. So the one item would be made up of as many as 4 seperate items. The maximum weight allowed by most couriers is 30 kg, and the sum of these 4 boxes is more than that. 

Is there a way to split the shipment into multiple pieces - more importantly, the customer has to pay shipping on those 4 pieces. I have tried a couple of workarounds, but in the end when I ship, I lose money on the shipping side.
