    Hello guys,

    wondering if you can help me. I am bidding for a set of wheels on ebay and am wondering the best value freight from the U.S to Australia and approximate cost. Anybody been through this experience?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Mick.

    I have sent a few frames 'down under'(same size box as 2 wheels in a rame box) and used USPS..about $90USD. Way cheaper than FedEx/UPS/DHL. Just make sure they are under the 108 inch maximum. Height+length+girth.

    see USPS.com for guidelines and how to measure.

    UPS(NOT USPS, US Postal Service), FedEx, DHL are all lots more expensive than the postal service. 2-3 times as much.

    UPS, check the third table (oversized package) on this link:

    I bought once a frameset from them and it arrived ok here to South America. But you will have to pay for customs i guess (and not very cheap...)
