LCL shipment to Europe
« on: December 15, 2013, 07:36 AM »
In a tread from a couple of days ago, Trojan sawhorses where mentioned.

I've been eyeballing those Trojan's for a couple of years now.  Contacted Jeff, founder of Trojan, about shipment to Europe but the price was to high. 
At the moment I'm in looking in to the costs of a LCL (Less then Container Load) shipment over sea.
I've got a couple of quote's back and it seems feasible, it's about $1 for every $4 bought.  So about 25% "tax" (shipment, import duties, handling).  Which is not so much higher than the sales tax of 21% we normally pay in Belgium
I'm planning of importing 3 sets of horses, a bulk reel 3/8" of Flexzilla (250ft) and an Incra flipfence system.

Now if there's interest in a group buy of Trojan horses and import them to Europe, I'm willing to look into it more, what the actual cost would be etc...
Other items are also possible of course.  Group all the items at the forwarding company, ship it to Rotterdam, I arrange pick up and forward it to the final destination in Europe.

So if there is anyone interested in something like this, let me know.  I would like to organize it on short term, now need to let it drag for months.  Two weeks of holidays coming up so this is an ideal moment to get everything organized.
The shipment company has 3 to 4 containers send over every month and shipping takes 4 weeks.

 All the best,

Hans
