    Default shipping a bumper OS

    Our Canadian fuego-tragic friend has asked me for a front bumper for his super fuego, and I'm overstocked with them.

    But I neither have the experience/contacts nor time at this stage to organise the logistic side of things from scratch, so I'm putting it out there for some help on this one.

    Anyone got any recommendations in this matter???

    Will require a Box....$$$$$

    Work out dimensions and weight first

    Need a freight forwarder.....$$$$$

    Try DHL with what, where to, time frame

    Who is paying for pack and freight

    Have sent a pristine R17 bonnet to Ireland, what a lot of mucking around.

    Insure the item for damage and non receipt....$$$$$

    Good Luck

    My only suggestion would be to contact a furniture removalist who claims to move stuff to anywhere in the world. They'll always be happy to stash an extra bit of cargo to fill up a load for a price, they will/should be able to have the bumper delivered by local freight at the other end direct to his door.

    If my experience with 4CV bumpers is any guide, and your bumper is in A1 nick, it may be better to try to source new (melun-retro passion etc) as rechroming here()at least) is exhorbitant.
    It'd be cheaper to get it gilded or silver plated!!!

    The Fuego bumpers are plastic so re-chroming is not an issue.
    However, it with be a real PIA if the bumper was cracked.
    The dimpled surface doesn't make for easy plastic welding.

    On the transport, try to stay away from the DHL, FedEx etc.
    The service is generally good but would cost a small fortune for something the size of a bumper.
    (6 zones, you'd probably not see any change out of 2 grand).
    There are pack and post companies around (try yellow pages) that will pack and deliver anything to anywhere.
    They probably have a range of service (and cost) options from dead slow to light speed.

    You need to use a freight consolidator and go sea freight. It will be priced based on the volume consumed, not its weight.

    It needs to be well wrapped, and over-insured; value should reflect the cost of having an unbroken replacement airfreighted over.

    If you go via removalists etc it might go as a "square" which as Grahame says, is stuff to make up a full load. Recipient is advised to collect from the city where the containers will be unladed and do their own brokerage/clearing so far as possible.

    Check out fumigation issues first, and make sure it is pressure washed clean in every cranny.
