My question to him and Finland was why they don't sell them here and where I could buy from. I would have even paid for a one off special order through Bunnings or M10 if needed.

My experience with shipito

Brilliant, never thought they would photograph it as its being checked in and then ask if i would like to take an internal pic as well for an extra $2

If you want to save another $10USD on tax then don't send it to California. But! this facility is very close to LA which is where the DHL freighter leaves from, so will be much quicker.

Was it worth it? it was to me. I now have a mower that cuts and cut well. One which does not require oil, petrol, filters. One that I can mow the lawn at 3am and not wake the wife. O.K so I'm not going to cut the grass that early, really................

But yeah its very nice, and way better than the Bosch.

Nicw, that is awesome service.

I take it you did not get pinged for GST on the way through either (would have added a couple of days) - good score.

Yes I now have a permanent mail box with this company. They have three points over the states that you can use and you can choose between them. You could pay an annual fee to consolidate your shipping or just pay as you go $8USD for the use of the mail box plus shipping.
Very good company with loads of communication.
It would be interesting hear from anyone else that has used these sorts of services and what they think.

No, no duty on this and no GST
