Shipping to the UK from US

Post by The Chad on Mon Jun 16, 2014 12:11 pm

Hey guys, anyone shipped a guitar from the US to the UK? I need advice, I'm getting wild quotes from $1000.00 to $300.00. It's an Ebay sale, I don't want to go the Ebay Global Shipping thing if I can help it, I've heard horror stories about that.

Hey Chad, based purely on one very bad experience I would avoid USPS if possible. Their after sales service should your parcel be delayed or the goods damaged is quite simply Sh*t.

UPS seem to have a great rep but probably also a healthy price tag to match, good luck

Shipped quite a few. Every shipper has used USPS. Bolt on's with neck removed obviously. Never paid more than 80 but the last one was around 2 years ago. So prices are probably now higher. Never had a problem so far unlike Meadows who had a mare!

I shipped a X350MA to EUR and it was crazy money. I was the seller, so no big deal, but as a buyer..no way I would have done it

No experience to UK but did send a very well packaged and secured Guitar to Australia via USPS but was well insured and I had multiple photos of the guitar before, during , and after packing for the insurance. Was not needed as it arrived in great shape to Australia but not certain about the UK as I have heard several horror stories on that destination. Good luck.
