Unfortunately for us international shippers, the USPS has done away with most of their "surface shipment" (by sea) international mail, which was supposed to take 4-6 weeks (but was priced accordingly). Only USPS air mail is available to Australia now. So for one single D0VE head, shipping would cost $450-$500 to Australia, per head, depending on particulars.

Paul

(p.s. If, by chance, you are sending the heads to a US military person that is overseas, then the price structure is entirely different.)

FedEx or DLH?

I have a friend that just had a complete car shipped to Australia for $850.00. Seems unbelievable that it would cost $600 for a pair of heads.

Maybe you should look into getting a container load of parts.LOL

I would give DHL a try they are very reasonable on large heavy stuff I have shipped. I also sold a truck to Japan,it cost him $3000.00 from L.A. to Yohahama.....4 years ago!

5-6 years ago, it was going to take $370 or more to ship a single head from Italy to Canada, so I went with a different head (this was for an import application).
