Sending a big thing to US
December 16, 2022, 11:57:30 am
Bit of a random oneÖAnybody got any knowledge on this?
Iíve got an item Iíd potentially like to send to the US (Palm Springs) Itís round(ish) about 2.3m diameter and 30cm deep. Weighs approx 40kg. Value about £2.5k (so will be import taxes to pay).
I donít need fast shipping, just reliable and sensibly priced.
Iíve googled and sent out a few enquiries but just wondering if anyone here has any real world experience/recommendations.
Thanks

Moon gate?

I've got no direct experience of the USA but when sending  a significant amount of holds to the south of France I used P4D based on a recommendation from a hold supplier. They appear to also do the US of A.

Iíve had good experiences with DHL, inc buying an expensive mirror from China.
