Since replies cannot be posted to the for sale section of the site, I figured I would try here...

Does anyone have an idea of what it would cost to ship a 20" bicycle to the U.K. or Australia? A ball park figure would suffice.

Thanks!

USPS is the least expensive. There are size maximums, so check out their website and you can get pretty close. It is spendy!

A complete bike to sent to Australia from the US would cost around $150 - $200 via USPS airmail in 2 boxes. The size would exceed limitations so you would need to part the bike out and spread it across 2 packages to get under the size limit. You colud send a complete bike by UPS or FedEx but it would cost serious $$$$... Hope this helps

It depends on how fast you want to get it there. By boat, which takes 4-6 weeks, is about 85.00. By airmail(about a week or so), it's about 150.00

I am still having trouble getting a 26 inch GT cruiser frame to fit under the ??inch girth that USPS wants for all their air mail packages now ,from the US to OZ. It seems that the max girth used to be ??? inches , now it's been reduced.
My 20 inch Quadangle came over fairly easy packed up in 2 boxes , but 26 inch frames seem to be too big , maybe I'll have a closer look thru the USPS site to see if they have penaly rates or something for over girth frames.



Got all the other major parts to build this beast as a brutal early 1980's rider/racer , _very_ frustrating. <aybe the frame likes the Florida weather & dosen't want to travel this time of year.....

Help
