    If you read my original post you will see that I said that McMaster Carr will not post post outside of america.

    Whatever works for you. Happy to help out.

    But they state:
    If we are shipping your order outside of the US and Canada, we will ship small parcels via DHL and larger shipments through one of our forwarders.


    So, with both cases it must either be something related to your special case (long item to the Falklands), or those sites can't be trusted.

    AgX, I emailed McMaster Carr for a quote for the postage and they just stated that they would not post outside of america. They did not offer any alternatives. Do you know the cost of packages sent via DHL? It would make the whole project untenable.

    I was just poking around on the USPS website, and they are not going to be exactly cheap.

    Do you think its a language terminology thing? Post seems like an odd term to me. Perhaps they think you mean post office like US Postal Service? Perhaps if you asked if they would "ship" to the Falklands?

    It could possibly be to do with language, I am English and to me shipping is what you use boats for and living here I do not want it sent by ship. It could take 3 months to get here.
    I checked on USPS website and their length limit is, I believe, 37" so my 24" rack should not be a problem. There are many companies that won't post overseas, I wonder why not?
