Nvidia 260 Shipping - US to UK

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A fellow OCN member has offered me a 260, all I need to do is pay for shipping. when I went to check it out the prices were ridiculously too high (think I tried fedex or parcelforce.. not sure what it was)

prices ranged from $130 to $150.

Now, what I need help with is any advice/help with people that have experienced shipping similar hardware from the US to the UK.

Personally I was expecting £20/£30 max!!
I have no experience with shipping internationally

He should be able to ship it via USPS for cheap. I shipped a small package about the size of a video card box for like 13 dollars through USPS.

Cheers. going to check it out now, assuming I know what I am doing.
Did you ship internationally though?

USPS Priority will cost you $45. If you use your own box and are willing to resort to slow shipping, $25.

flat rate boxes are super expensive to ship across the pond, you have to use your own box. Just use the slow shipping.

Yes USPS first class should be around 13 but it's unsafe and very slow. USPS priority is saver and has tracking... I would say around 25 bucks from us to uk

Looks like Express mail is good for shipping time, and priority for cheaper.
