Ok so I’ve been doing a lot of evilbaying lately and I’ve stumbled accross a pretty big problem. There’s engines, beautiful little engines, but I can’t have them!!
Reason being, some either don’t ship to Australia or don’t actually know how to add international shipping to their auctions.
Would anyone in America help me by purchasing and shipping to me?
I’d pay the money in advance so there’s no concerns, but it would need to be done by someone with reputation on this site, I’m don’t be want to be ripped off either.
Thank you for reading
Matt in Australia

Have you considered a 3rd party mail forwarding service?
I have one set up in the UK for the same reasons.

I've never even heard of that before. I'll have to have a look, is it on the internet or the post office?
Thank you for your help

Its a service provided by a third party.
You have the seller ship to this third party here in the states and then that third party will ship to you in Oz.
It's not a free service, but usually reasonably priced.
Try googling "mail forwarding usa"

My eBay seller act. is set so someone outside my shipping area can't bid or contact me, don't know if they can see the listing.
Overseas shipping to me means long lines at PO, filling out customs forms, slow shipping with no tracking and buyers that blame me for their countries import tax.
Just not worth it. I thought eBays Global Shipping Program was the answer but we all know how that turned out.

Stunt Hanger
Stuka Stunt

Offer to pay actual shipping and some accommodation for the USA grief of filling out the forms

I have personally shipped a lot of stuff the Australia....not that big a deal and I know how to describe a Cox .049 Baby Bee as hobby related repair parts


You are here on CEF, and we saw your intro... so brother...place one or more want adds here...lots of us ald farts have stashes we will never ever use

Yes not as fun as jumping all over e-bay with literally 2 million items in Hobby model airplane

but truse me wink wink...WE are a very generous and non greed community,,,,,,here on CEF

Brand new RR-1 in perfect case will not be parted with for cheap.... but a hand full of product engines or gently used bees,,, even Medalions or Teedees...for fair prices can be had right here

and If you have not yet created an account with Bernie or Matt...get thy arse to a key board

Fred, thanks ever so much for helping out our new member. I know of and have jumped in on StuntHanger, those other ones other than CEF, were sorta new to me, too. The one I couldn’t locate with a airplane or hobby connection was Bartons, unless you were referring to your traditional afternoon whiskey ball?
