Any experience of Shipping UK to USA?

Postby Clanger on Sat Apr 30, 2016 9:40 am

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has experience of shipping UK to USA that they could share? I would be shipping a car engine cylinder head, but I guess its not that far from shipping an amp?

Thanks ,

Clanger

air freight TNT or fedex can be surprisingly cheap, volume calculates weight/price generally

I ship a fair few amps to the States. Customs occasionally sit on them for ages and give no clue what they are doing.

I've had stuff I ordered from China, go to customs, back to china, back to customs, back to china, back to customs and then to me.

The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
