Greetings all
I have recently found a item(printer) that i need to have sent from New Holland, Pennsylvania to St Thomas. It is est 24x24x24 and weighs around 90-100 pounds including packaging.

Everywhere i check it seems to cost around 900$ which I think sounds absurd!
- Is it really not possible to do any cheaper, or is it just me?

Find me a solution and there is a round of beer in it for you whereever you want it...... 🙂

Thank you for any help!

Have them ship it to Express Consolidation in Miami. Will be here is about a week. UPS and Fed Ex consider us ti be international, hence the rates. USPS is always the best way however it might be too heavy. That package shipped EC would probably be less than $100. You can call Meme St John and ask her the scoop. 340-244-0519.

Tropical Shipping has a delivery address in Kearny,NJ....you can have it delivered there and it will be shipped to STT from there.

I shipped a generator here from the states similar is size for around $150 fed ex. Also check Carib Trans in Florida their local agen is St Thomas cargo. We ship a lot of boat parts that way. We had a seven foot long boat rudder shipped from France on an airplane for less than that.
