How to send telescopes internationally ?

Recommended Posts

surely you could get a flight and hand deliver the scope with someone like ryan air for less than £100 and if you pick the right flights i am sure it would be very cheap

Courier options are always very expensive unless you have an account and shift a good amount to get the keen rates.

A big thanks to everyone. I finally found a quote at Transglobal Express using a DHL service. Costs me £68.50 of which £20 are an insurance cover over £1000. I still suppose glass breakage is not covered, but at least loss.

And "telescopes" are not menioned amongst "restricted items". :glasses2:

Now I have to get the coffin to work to put more FRAGILE tape onto the box before seing poor Carl going. However, where he goes he will have it better as the guy is a Zeiss enthusiast and a proper mount is waiting for Carl.
