need a shipping company thats not ripping me of for shipping a two piece 9feet Rod from jersey to hamburg/germany. Is jersey post standard service recommended? Cost only 20Pounds for a max length of 150cm and one kilo. Should be enough for a rod and a transport tube, shouldnt it?
Any other good advice?

Cheers
Thomas

I just chose destination as Germany from the drop down menu, cheapest came up as £14.90 Fedex? for package size 150 x 5 x 5 @ 1kg Perhaps it wont work from another country?

Just noticed that price does not include VAT @ 17.5% therefore costs £17.50. If Jersey post is £20 - not much saving really

I just posted a shukan in it's tube to the UK for £7, standard parcel post. Would think it would be very similar to jersey. Will let you know how long it takes to get there but with the gale force here today and ferry cancelled it might add a day or two unfortunately.

Call Mrfish and speak to Doug. He does loads of postal stuff and in the past got me some massive savings on stuff going out to Singapore and Argentina. It saved me nearly 60% in one case. They know the new system well but I personally would steer clear of Jersey Post.

jep, need Jersey to 22041 Hamburg / germany. Think 20Pounds incl. VAT might be best price to get. Size I do not know, but think a two piece AFAW 9feet in a transport tube should be below size 150 x 15 x 15cm, if a roll is allowed. Rod in its tube (does the AFAW MK1 come in a Tube?) wrapped with bubble foil. Or a PVC Tube...

Thx a lot for you advice
Thomas
