overseas shipping fees - PLS HELP!

Guys,

Pls help me!

I bought a Hutch Pro Raider frame set on eBay and after paying for it I ordered a full pad set for it, purchased a Hutch stem and a pair of Hutch mags, too. Pretty expensive stuff. Now the seller says the frame set is not eligible for USPS International Priority Mail Shipping because of my address (Hungary) and want to cancel the deal. Given that I have acquired a number of frame sets and even complete bikes from the US and shipping was always reasonable, the fee this seller is offering to me seems outrageous. He says the cheapest way to send the frame set to me is 350 bucks.

Could you pls help me suggest an alternative shipping method to this guy (the one you'd use for your items)? I'm not familiar with the available shipping possibilities, hence the request.

Any help would be greatly appreciated here, I need to find to solution and get the frame set otherwise I can throw the other Hutch stuff to the trash... They worth nothing w/o the frame.

Cheers,

Re: overseas shipping fees - PLS HELP!

he needs to remove the fork from the frame, bubble wrap it all and then custom cut the box to fit it as small as possable.

he is likely tring to ship in a bike box and its way over the size limit.

If not, a fair number of guys here probably would receive it for you, and then ship.


Whenever someone says, "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart," all I hear is, "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart."
