    Default Posting bike from UK to Australia

    Hi all, found a nice frame on the UK eBay site, but posting to Australia looks like it might be expensive. I was wondering if anyone has ever used a delivery service for less than 300 pounds (yes, that is the ballpark figure for online quotes I've been getting!). Any helpful tips are most appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I've used www.forward2me.com for a frame recently
    Around 130 and was delivered in 5 days. They are a forwarding company and get corporate rates with all the big couriers. Dhl website quoted 80 more than dhl on forward 2 me.

    Cool, I'll look into that. I've also noticed that some guys on eBay are promising a 50 pound delivery fee for UK to Aus with Parcelforce Global Express. Anyone had any luck with them? I went on their website and couldn't get close to 50, it was still more like 200 +.

    Cheers,

    If you see postage for 50 I would take it.
    It's the eBay global shipping program and legit, the seller has nothing to do with it
