Quiver killing mid fats? - Page 4

post #91 of 96

Well I shipped a pair of skis to someone in Belgium and it was much, much, cheaper than anything else. No customs either, but it was used.

Hmmm I'm struggling to get a quote. One can fill in either the dimensions of a package or the weight, but when I try and "guesstimate" the weight (@11lb), it demands that the package dimensions also be filled in?!

I seem unable to circumvent it. frown.gif

I went on a UK import duty calculating site and, providing the shipping costs $20, the price works out £30 cheaper than the UK price (approx. $47).
So it'd be feasible!

Try using 25cm square, 190cm long.

Well crud, they're probably dying for more skis in Belgium. A government subsidy for bringing in more ski gear would not surprise me. Try it with chocolate, or beer, or a 'cross bike and you'd probably have a different experience. :D

Long bindings!
Customs is different everywhere and changes all the time. It's nigh impossible to figure out unless you make it a specialty.

If you ship to Canada by Fedex or Ups I'm told that they'll charge a fee even if there's no customs. 40-90$. Only solution is US Mail which goes Canada Post. No Customs, no fee. Now new stuff from a store is different.

Btw, those forwarders are watched and sometimes raided.

Just got the Mojo 18's delivered. Wow, there is a ton of metal in these- one of the burliest bindings I have seen in years.

 

I really appreciate the advice.
