International shipping?
« on: June 25, 2019, 06:50:36 PM »
Has anyone here ever shipped from Holland to the US?  I'm having difficulty getting a quote.

Thanks.

I have had several shipments from there, Fedex was the cheapest option.
That was to Australia, via the USA. They could kick it out of the door on the way through :)

Crazy expensive, Mick.  But thanks.  Cheapest I've found is $1800.  FedEx was $4980.  Economy Freight.

shipping costs have become insane     example   over 300 USD to ship US to Europe for a MCDU    and that was not Express..  also the hurdles are a nightmare    ID required inspection of package etc etc it's really  somewhat intrusive on the shipper ..just sets me off like a fire cracker

It is getting so bad for us builders that sometimes my shipping cost exceed the costs of what I am buying.

Unless it is huge in size, I use USPS postal service with Europe and it is fast reliable and cheap.
