    Shipping from overseas

    Anyone have any recommendations for shipping something from overseas?

    I found some wheels in Norway and the cheapest shipping I can find so far is like $500. The boxes are 60x60x30 and weigh 12-14kg per box

    DHL shipping is pretty cheap. Keep in mind that the pandemic has driven up the prices for certain shipping services though.

    I checked DHL, twice, and the quote I got was over $3k. Pretty sure I entered all the info correct as well

    That's strange, it should be roughly a 75 charge per box, so 300 total.

    The dimensions of the boxes he is using are 60x60x30 (cm) and he said one wheel and box without packaging was 12kg

    I found this incredibly cheap freight company that seemed to specialize in wheels. I’m not sure if it was domestic or overseas.

    I’ll try to find it and get back to you. I remember them showing up on a website detailing how to ship wheels. I remember googling this when I tried to ship mercedes wheels. The price was surprisingly reasonable.

    [edit]

    I think I found it:

    https://howtoshipwheels.com/

    and I think this is the provider they recommend:
    https://www.shipnex.com/express-ship...rral=699362547

    They’re actual human beings. When I called them, I spoke to someone from Turkey which was cool.
