Hey guys

I am not home these days so I would like to hire someone to import the Cosmos II pc case for me. It seems they are not avaliable in nz. I am not home so I would like it to be shipped to someone and then they can ship to me.

I will pay for everything and give you an addional $60.

The case is worth a bit, so you would have to take care of the customs paperwork etc....

If your interested message me.

If you own this case and is in as new condition and would like to sell it, message me also.

Cheers guys!

The Cosmos 2 is available in NZ, Just not that often kept in stock, If you contact the retailers who sell them they will be more than happy to order one in for you.

PB Tech and Playtech are the first that come to mind that list them on their sites.

Maybe it's just me, but something seems a bit fishy - how exactly are we meant to ship it to you when you cant receive a package in the first place?

The case is 22 kg it's gonna cost a lot just for the shipping. I guess it depends on how bad you want it..

What country would you want this shipping to and how are you going to pay for this?

marmel: What country would you want this shipping to and how are you going to pay for this?


Nigeria maybe?

But seriously, you would want to check NZ Customs regulations about importing something for your own personal use versus importing for someone else.

Theres nothing fishy here guys, its just that I dont know how to do the customs paper work and dont have the time for it. But dont worry now, I have contacted a local retailer who is willing to get it in for me.

Cheers

"Customs paperwork" is all of ~3 minutes giving the freight company (whethr it be UPS/DSL/NZ Post) your credit card number.

Looking at the weight and cost of this product from overseas I'd be picking it costing you somewhere in the vicinity of $200 - $250 at a minimum more to import it (before you pay somebody an extra $60) versus simply buying it in NZ.

Where does it need to come from? How much of a hurry are you in?

If it's less the $400 then you'll not need to pay Duty and GST on it for personal use it's a whole different story if it's for resale

but after saying that PnP on an single item of this size would probably make it more expensive than buying one here

Playtech have it listed but not in stock for $669 and free shipping so thats a pretty good deal right there

http://www.playtech.co.nz/afa.asp?idWebPage=39235&CATID=16&ID=16937&SID=880987654&ref=pricespy

if you gave them a call I'm sure they'd order one in or atleast advise you of when the next lot of stock is inbound for there store

Here's a taste of what it will cost to import from TigerDirect via UPS World Wide

SUBTOTAL: $339.99

SHIPPING: $594.70

TAX: $0.00
------------------------------------
TOTAL: $934.69
