Courier companies that ship to South Africa?

Postby Andre van Tonder » Wed Jan 26, 2011 2:20 pm

I thougt this might be the best place to post this question.

I ordered a new bow from a company in the USA and was just informed the FedEx does not ship compound Bows to South Africa. :x :x

Can anybody please advise us which company to use to get the bow sent here? Maybe dealers on the forum can help as you surely also ship compound bows from time to time :lol: :lol: :lol:

UPS

or get hold of a bow shop that imports and ask them who they use. I'm going to guess and say you've ordered something from Barnsdale?

Uhm, uhm ... nope.

Do you study the people that post on here? I my next target bow will either be Barnsdale or Merlin, but this is not it (yet :lol: :lol: :lol: )

I will speak to Juan or Redge.

Just out of interest, what other costs are involved in importing a bow? Duty?

Usually only VAT ... There is not supposed to be import duties on sporting goods.

I may be a little but I have shipped quite a bit of stuff with the US postal service to SA and have had no problems.
