Posting a dash piece across the pond (help needed)

Postby birdcage » 09 Apr 2014, 20:55

Is there anyone who can help with the purchase of a german ebay item and ship it to the states?

I'll gladly pay for your time, and repay the favor if you need something on my end sent over. I have two big syncro projects underway and this is a perfect piece for one of them.

Thanks,


E D I T, to signify posting an item not shipping. Forgot about different terminology used in other parts of the world.

Mike AKA Busman in Belgium is your man . He's got the experience to get this sort of thing done. Google him.

He was the first one I asked. He's said he doesn't know anyone to do this.

I'll gladly pay upfront, for the item cost, packaging, freight, and your time. I presume paypal would be the quickest

All that's needed is someone to purchase the item and have it posted to them, then forward to me.

Thanks,

Hi there,
Post or ship ? I've bought motorbikes from the states before and shipped to UK, can't be that hard the other way around. I speak German, that might help.

Maybe drop Hutch a note on here. He might be able to help with that.

Are you looking at roll on roll off or a container?

I'm guessing this is not a van, or certainly not one that can drive under it's own power? Otherwise I'm guessing Mike (busman) would be able to pick it up for you and drop it at Zeebruges for shipping by ro-ro ferry to the US.

No, just a simple dash piece 2'x5' maybe 10lbs or so

Hi Jed, this is the guy in Washington that ordered shirts and hoodys from you guys before you left for your trip. I posted a pic of my wife in hers on your site. Thanks for the bulbs, stickers, and our youngest rocks the beanie all the time.

Sorry about that I totally miss read your post I was reading 3 emails at once and got you confused with someone wanting to ship a van to the USA from Germany :oops:

If I can help in any other way please feel free to ask. Shipping to you guys from Europe is easy we do it every day and it takes about three minutes per order.

It said post to Germany only, not worldwide etc.

Time expired already anyway, I appreciate those who tried to help. If anyone comes across one again please inform me
