Shipping Costs From Usa To Europe


Morbus Curiositas
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello FPN Friends

 

I often see nice FP's abroad...

 

I thought about Getting a few Jinhao's they seem to be nice for the price... Nice for filling with different inks for every day use.

 

Amamzon UK do not deliver those to Austria (silly (bleep) ;) )

 

The shipping costs from a broad can be an Aggrivating Experience in the Rectal Cavity (sorry can't write that they are A pain in the ... here :) )

 

Well if I have to pay shipping costs why buy it on E bay when I can buy those from a Wellknown shop wiht a good reputation like Goulet Pen...

 

Especially as you can pimp them with Goulet nibs.... Cool!!!

 

Does anyone know what the shipping costs are.... I have seen some other nice shops in the USA too

 

Thanks Peter

 

Ps may be I should buy a rowing boat and pick em up myself :)

I do believe you can check out shipping costs at Goulet when you're about to check out?

 

Alternatively, one could check USPS's fees, for I believe that is what Goulet uses (most economical rates already!)

 

If you find shipping to Europe direct from goulet too expensive, may I recommend using a site like comgateway (no affiliation, just a happy customer) that at least provides tracking for about the same price (or cheaper, if you're lucky!). The downside is that shipments would probably take a little longer.

 

Btw, I would recommend you use a motor boat. It's faster and doesn't take as much effort and elbow grease!

A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

Postage cost is by weight and distance. How many pens would be shipped ?

How much would the mailing agent / seller charge for the work of packaging, etc. ?

I have no way of judging the customs charges and import duties. Insurance ?

 

Glad to help with the information, when you can be more specific.

US postage from US to Europe is inexpensive...about $5 unless for a fountain pen unless you insure the pen for $100 or so. Ink, being mostly water, costs more. I have given several pens to FPNers in the UK or continental Europe. Always marked it as a gift worth about $10, which fits what most customs people would expect for a 60 year old P51.

 

I once mailed three jazz CD's to Azerbaijan and the cost was only $15. (CD's are heavy)

 

Shipping to the US looks much more expensive. On EBay, it usually runs about $10 for a pen. Customs duties at the US side are usually nothing, but Europeans say it is expensive to export.

Last week I bought 3 Jinhao 159's on eBay .... $5 a piece and free shipping from China .....

Can you tell which seller it was?

Seriously, check ebay and be sure to look at the international offers, not just Austrian ones. You will get you Jinhaos etc so dirt cheap, I am amazed how they manage to make money on them.

In a corrigated paper box, using newspaper packing, total weight should approx. 7 ounces.

Postage cost on the US Postal Service rate chart estimated at 10 to 12 pounds sterling or Euros.

If you are merely buying new pens, check Ebay. Price is reasonable with free shipping. Again,

I have no way to gauge customs and import fees.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned customs/import fees before your post - this was the first thing I thought about. Not sure of the value of the pens in question but postage costs for pens will be cheap due to the small size and weight. The thing that has always stopped me buying pens from outside the EU is the import fees as for the pens I buy these will far exceed the cost of postage. The pens might also get held up in customs which again seems more effort than it is worth.

 

If the Goulet website does not post their international shipping costs, I'm sure a quick email to them will result in the answer that is required.
