Parcels to Cyprus..

Hi Guys/Gals,

I have a small dilema and wondered if someone may help..

I have some parts for the B waiting to come out to Cyprus but are having a problem with courrier costs. which seem to be adding to over 200 -300 pounds.

Id imagine its the weight of the particular items which are adding to this,
being my new brembo's, discs and pads..

Discs are 8 kg each , caliper at 3-4kg each and approx 2kg for pads. 8+8+4+4+2 total 26 kilos.

Other items are gasket sets which have no major weight but are fragile as do not bend.. so i guess my parcel complete is max 30kilos

QUESTION!!

Does anyone know of a courrier or a way to get them to Cyprus for less? ..

Many thanks, Kiry

Hi Kiri.

Are you sure about the weights. 8kg for one disc seems excessive. I have a pair of original rear calipers and pads in a box which I bought thinking mine might be seized, and subsequently didn't use them, The parcel remains unopened and I have just weighed it on the bathroom scales at 4.5kg. Even so, a 30kg parcel by Interparcel from Uk to Cyprus would be around 80. try Titan Courier Services.

Steve

Hi Steve,

The discs are the new front larger 305mm vented/groved discs from the coupe turbo with its brembo calipers and pads.

But i,ll contact the courier mentioned . Thanks

Hi Kiry, shipping large stuff abroad from the UK has always been a problem. I used to sell a lot of servers and other computer parts to overseas buyers and it was a real problem finding shipping costs which were reasonable. I think I already mentioned to you that two overseas buyers of the brakes already pulled out because of shipping costs.

Parcel2Go is worth a look as it gives a few different options. Looks like there's one option here at less than 100:

Re: Parcels to Cyprus..

Hi Kiry, Just found this site I've been trying to get a front bumper from uk to bahrain for months. Had quotes anywhere from 300 - 600 !!

This place is the cheapest i've found upto now at 150 picked up and delivered

26 kg from UK to Cyprus about 80 includes customs duty.

Hope it helps....

p.s: nice looking brakes
