I'm the one Brian are talking about...

Hi Brian, Great response to this thread! At first I was a bit sceptical to transfering money to some guy that easily could fool me. But after reading this you seem just as cautious as me Sounds promising!

Does someone know any easy - and cheap way to send a couple of props from the US to Sweden. Delivery by US Postal service(?) costs $125 per prop. Since there are no rush I would be happy with something a lot cheaper...

Thanks,
Tomas

We are shipping more parts all the time to Europe, etc. We feel the credit cards Visa, Amex and the wire transfer are the way to go. As for shipping, use UPS, they have an excellent system to help you fill out all the required papers and fees as neccessary depending on the country. Makes it simple and painless.

I agree that's probably the best way.

Hey all,

Tomas's question is related to shipping costs. I looked into two methods, UPS and the US Postal Service. UPS wanted $260 each to ship props, and the Postal Service only wants $125 each.

Seems to me that a carrier that uses boats instead of airplanes would be considerably cheaper. Any ideas? Time isn't a problem. Sweden has as much snow and ice as Detroit these days.

Thanks,
Brian

Hey Brian;

you may want to check with becky, i have her ship to scandinavia often. i think that the postal service is the cheapest.

You have to watch sending things this way to less stable countries but to Sweden you are fine.

becky usually has a few tricks up her sleeve.
