I had considered shipping a PC with CRT monitor. The cost was over $1200 US. I have shipped a set of golf clubs to Australia. DHL tried to hit me up for more than S$1100. I have made a few inquires regarding shipping, excess baggage, etc. Rates are terrible.xtine10 wrote:Thanks for the responses.
Yes, it is compatible signal wise and power wise. I have just atarted to request some quotes but will wait to see the cost.
Strong Eagle: Is that estimate based on your experience with shipping such an item or just a gut feel? I was thinking it would be around $500.
Anyways, still need some recommendations of shipping companies to check with for a quote that will ship just a TV (and not an entire container). Thanks

Ring to a freight forwarder and ask for it to go by container, some have a fixed minimum price, like 1200$ others have no fixed price though waiting and delivery could be much longer, becuase they do not ship until a container is full, could take 3 month delivery...though mine took 7 weeks.
try http://www.sinfreight.com/index.htm Please let us know how they priced, both sea and air. It shouldn't be more than 150$ per cubic ft, though like i say some take a minium fixed price of 150 cubic some don't.
That's what I have been saying many times (in other threads):kwcm wrote:So at this rate, SingPost (by sea) seems the best option.
Yes - but I wonder whether it gets treated differently when it gets here together with hundreds of other TVs nicely wrapped and in its own container vs one TV (even though nicely wrapped, but not in a bundle) that is more likely to be thrown around.sundaymorningstaple wrote:Guess how they got here?!?
I shipped a 42 inch LCD via ship to Melbourne brand new years ago, it did not work when I tried to install it in OZ. Tried to claim insurance but I was given a run around. End up buying one from Harvey in OZ. Just not worth the risk when comes to electronic stuffkwcm wrote:And going back to the title of this thread, with the constant Electronics exhibitions and sales going on in Singapore at the moment coinciding with my discovery of the Singpost option, I've been very tempted to buy a new TV and ship it to Oz (making sure it falls below the AUS1,000 of course).
It does seem however quite risky to subject a brand new TV to the roughness of sea shipment - has anyone had any problems with their TV being shipped this way? I know of course that there's insurance, but of course, it's never the intention to have to rely on it.
