Hi All,

Just wanted to pick your brains.

Whats the cheapest and easiest way of doing this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks

the seller should be arranging shipping not you hun, the cheapest way is via the postal service in the states, couriers over there cost a fortune

I know, but she wasnt going to send to the UK, but I persuaded her if I sort the delivery. These clubs are a fortune over here if you can find them.

Im assuming the postal service is just like the Post office / Royal Mail? How would I go about finding prices etc?

Thanks

If they are worth quite a bit the seller will have to declare the value and you will get hit with customs charges, if they don't declare the value it wont be insured properly if they go missing.

Best way is for them to send via USPS

To be honest, I dont mind declaring what I paid so if they dont arrive Ive got my money back.

Im assuming this is US Postal Service?

The USPS does several flat rate boxes. you can find details on the site. I don't know, but the clubs might just fit into a poster tube and then would probably ship for the flat rate fee (if they were under the weight limit) so that's worth looking at.

she will still need to take them to the Post office to send them to you hun, couriers over there dont collect at home address like they will over here, USPS united states postal service is the same as our royal mail, they will cost a lot to send over, ask the seller if she will fill in the green customs declaration forms saying that these are personal items being sent home ,
you wont have to pay customs charges then. also make sures she has them insured cos if they get lost you may have problems claiming back off her as they dont do signed for on international mail as standard.

Do you think this will be suitable?

Works out at about $50, do you think I can get it cheaper?

there is no way to find out hun, the seller will need to get the weighed and let you know how much its costs, ive sent stuff back to the Uk from Orlando and most of the time the 10x10x10 6lb boxes cost over $65

Thanks all for your help and advice, I decided that the clubs just wasnt worth the extra expense.

Thanks again,
