Shipping Costs?

Post by RalphO » Thu Feb 17, 2005 9:00 pm

How can we figure out costs relating to shipping? How big are the containers, how much do they weigh? I am interested in the "basic kit" My current address is Oakland, California, which is a major, ocean shipping container, port.
Thanks for a reply- RalphO

A 20' container to the US is around 3000usd and this can contain many basic kits - probably ten or more. Ready built wings however require a 40' container. If you order just one basic kit though a crate is the way to go and this will cost around 1500usd excuding the cost of the crate. Ideally you need to team up with a few other US builders and put a few kits in a container to save costs!
