Looking for reasonably priced courier from the US

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the best topic location, tried searching but could not find any previous discussions, but I’m sure there is.  

Trying to find a reasonably priced courier service to Australia from the US.

Quoted a cost from FedEx $173 (US) which I think is starting to get excessive. The seller of the part sent me images of what he plugged in to the FedEx quote system. 

Package weight: 5Lbs          The item weighs 3Lbs with the box.

Package size: 10” x  7” x  5”

Delivery speed is not that important, I can wait a few weeks or month for its arrival. Does anyone have a good reasonably priced alternative?

Two suggestions:

1) Packnsend - a quick estimate was about AUD95

2) Shopmate service, have it shipped locally in US and forwarded on at quite good rates.

Good luck

I've used these 2 before.  Usually they do much larger importations but I've alway's found them prompt.  Just make sure you're not late with their payments.............
