Shipping USA to Australia How much ?

Hi

I have been asked to ship a RG550 from the US to Australia. Who has shipped to down under and how much "roughly" was it. Doesn't matter if Fed Ex, or USPS.


Thanks

Don't these companies have online shipping cost calculators these days?

Yes, they do! And since the shipping from zip code varies from seller-to-seller, it's a more accurate method of determining shipping charges.

Really?? Except not everyone has a scale and exact packaging at home especially not sunday night. So dimensions and weight are rather cloudy right now.

I needed a rough estimate.

Dude, I answered your questions when you PM'd before posting the thread. You won't find any different an answer here.

Rich Dude I know you did. The guy who wants to buy said he got a couple guitars shipped for roughly half of what you told me, assembled. Just confirming.

Probably the Paypal loophole where you don't have to enter a size, but by USPS rule you're not allowed to ship anything that big to AU, and Paypal can't answer what happens when one gets rejected.

I appreciate your help and was not doubting what you said. I see if i can bring her to FedEx tomorrow to get a price. $350 is quite a bundle.

Remove the neck ,bubble wrap both neck and body and pack in smaller box,approx $70 to ship to Aus.
I usually work a deal with the seller,they keep the case in return for better price etc...
