    It seems like usps air mail is the best and cheapest way. Fedex wants $243.00 for 1 week delivery. Usps is under $60.00 for 14 day delivery.

    Rates going up

    I'm finding out if I would have sold bow 2-3 months ago shipping would be half . It has doubled in last couple of months

    $243 for 7 day delivery????

    that is highway delivery......

    tell me somethingis this for shipping it assembled????

    if so I would look into dissembling it and packing it a much smaller box....

    thats what the guy did for me, worked like a charm......plus the people had no idea, what was in the box......went thru custom's in less than 24 hours.....

    make him pay for shipping and just a warning...

    if customs gets a hold of it there is no telling HOW long it will take. My personal opinion is never ship international. Its not worth the headache, hassle, and increased cost.

    International shipping

    We find you can go from the US to common destinations for around $70 with USPS. DHL I think might have better deals to Australia.
