    The purpose of this thread is two-fold.

    First, I want to let Reonauts in S.A. know the various shipping options available to them individually. I chose a hotel in Johannesburg and a Bed & Breakfast in Clanwilliam as test locations to ship a normal International package using the various carriers. Your actual location may cause the prices to vary slightly
    • FedEx Options for a 1 lb. box (1-2 Reos + spare components)
      • International Priority (2-3 business days) USD $69.52
      • International Economy (5-6 business days) USD $65.10
    • USPS Options for a 1 lb. box (1-2 Reos + spare components)
      • Priority Mail (6-10 business days "to most major markets") USD $40.95
      • First Class (15-999 business days) USD $29.95
    • DHL Options for a 1 lb. box (1-2 Reos + spare components)
      • International Express (2-3 business days) USD $103-$134, depending on location
    FedEx and DHL provide tracking from Reos HQ through delivery. USPS provides tracking only to S.A. customs.

    Second, I hope this thread can serve as a digital bulletin board for people to discuss upcoming orders and combine multiple shipments into one "group" shipment to cut down on freight costs. If you are putting together an order for yourself, please post out here and ask for others to P.M. you their orders. Combined orders can cut the shipping costs by more than 50%. Increasing weight from a 1 lb. box to a 3 lb. box only increases cost by a few dollars.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    @KZOR, if you need anything else from reosmods and you want to indicate your intention to be involved in a "group shipping" exercise, remember this thread ;-)

    Since I'm curious to see if we can work as a group, I'm willing to make a deal with everyone in S.A. If you all can put together an order with at least 5 mods on it by the end of January, I'll pay for the shipping (FedEx Int'l Priority) to whoever is coordinating it in S.A. and then they can distribute from there. Who's in?

    That is marvellous @Eric Parlin
    Superb offer

    Will try help and assist where I can - and maybe by emd of Jan I might have to decide to join in on this - if not for another mod, then some spares perhaps

    By the way, do you by any chance have some deoxit gold that could be shipped by emd of Jan?

    Please let me know when planning a group buy.
    I'm tentative, but keen. Need to see what the birth of my daughter costs me.

    It cost me the rest of my hair and a good chunk of my sanity, but that wasn't until she was a teenager. . .

    The Mini 2.1 handles a O16 atty pretty well. The 510 deck area is about 17.5 mm wide x 19 mm deep.

    Ok cool. We'll definitely chat within the next 6 months. I like the p67 but the button on top to me just screams reo.

    Thank you very much @Eric Parlin for this fantastic offer but sadly we could not get a sufficient order together.
    I (or someone) will put an order together in the next month or so for a few Reos and some spares and spilt the shipping amongst ourselves.
    Again, thank you for the offer. (it's January and nobody has money in January)
