HELP....Shipping to Singapore for crealkilla Empty
PostSubject: HELP....Shipping to Singapore for crealkilla   HELP....Shipping to Singapore for crealkilla I_icon_minitimeTue Feb 12, 2013 7:24 am


HELP....


I have a BOXED SLAVE 1 for CREALKILLA but i'm struggling to find a cheap method for shipping it from the UK to SINGAPORE.

Parcel Dims 31cm x 39cm x 52cm
Weight 1.85 kg

The item has approx 50mm (2") of chippings surround the item hence the overalll size of the box.

Any help is appricated on behalf of myself and Sulaiman, thank you.

Hi Stefan,

The bottom line is that shipping that size of box to Singapore is not going to be cheap no matter the carrier.

It's too big for RM so they will push you towards Parcelforce Worldwide who are extrodinarily expensive and shite. Best bet would be to speak to a courier firm or someone like Parcel Monkey but beaware that due to the dimensions the box, based on most courier's calculations, will volumetrically calculate ((L x H X W) x 250)) the weight at around 16kg. So when you ask for a quote say 'it's 16kg' to receive an accurate quote. For example looking at my TNT rate sheet I would estimate it would cost around £80 and that's with a 60% corporate discount!!

*** Inaccurate prices removed by me!***

Best of luck.
Regards,
Christian

Wow, that's crazy.

It's only $50 from the US to Singapore. If it's cheaper, ship to the US and I'll ship to him

If you're going to buy a bunch of items, try finding someone who might be able to hold them locally and then ship in bulk.

No problem, everyone has been very welcoming and have helped with my many questions and PM's!!!

I treat this as a hobby, and a way of making new friends.

I was a solo collector for nearly 10 years, I now ask myself WHY ?!?!

Good to see that Parcelforce Worldwide were able to help. Shame on me for assuming they used the same volumetric criteria as a courier firm :opps:
