Tips for cheap international shipping of large sets - from UK


Recommended Posts

Hi, Anyone have any tips on cheap international shipping for larger lego sets from the UK. I have lots of large sets that I will probably sell in the future on ebay but the international postage/shipping costs seem prohibitively expensive and therefore limiting my market. Any advice or people with experience would be appreciated? Also for those of you in USA, Australia, or continental Europe, what would you pay for shipping and still be happy with the price? (Use 2507 Ninjago Fire Temple or 9468 Vampyre Castle as an example) thanks.

I would find it hard to imagine someone in the US buying those sets from someone in the UK. It seems like there are enough sellers in the US who could beat your prices, and I thought in general the entry price for sets such as these is much higher in the UK??

In my experience international shipping is not really the type of thing where you want the lowest cost provider handling your packages. When I ship internationally it's only via USPS Express Mail International, and I fully pass those costs onto the buyer. I realize that this limits the market, but it's a lot better than people claiming to have never received their items. If people want your things badly enough they will pay to have it properly shipped.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I've no intention on selling any of them until they've been discontinued for several months and the price increased, and I'm mainly only buying sets that I believe are going to go EOL soon or are on a heavy discount. It was more a theory in concept, as I don't believe many will end up going overseas because of the postage price, but mentioned set 2507 (as an example set) as I've picked up some recently for
