Anyone know a method of cheap intl shipping?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at buying something but I realized that shipping would be way out of hand since it is in England

It would be three boxes one about 60 pounds another around 80 and a third around 30.

UPS ranges from just under $500 up to 900.
FedEX is $800
DHL is $900

anyone know any cheaper services? Maybe by boat?

Can you have it mailed to you? Mail is usually longer/cheaper. I have no idea what the maximum weight/dimensions are for the British PO.

well, if you actually send it by ship it will cost you almost nothing. It will take some time though...
This is what all real import/export is about. When you look at what things cost in let's say indonesia, the cost of shipping and what the same things sell for in your country, you'll start to understand how some people are so insanly rich...
