    It's cheaper using Fims but only good for orders less than $150.00
    Anything more and it's better splitting between two or three persons. Never had a problem with Freestyle. Email, call, or order online and the service is nonsense free.
    It would be nice if our local supplier was like this!

    My Freestyle FIMS (Fedex) order arrived in 20 days to Australia. I ordered some of the new Ilford Multigrade Classic FB Cooltone Glossy. I was rather surprised to see that the last postmark originated from Sweden !! (PO box 5001 Malmo, Sweden). With Freestyle's address crossed out in black sharpie/felt pen. Now the only possible reason I can think of is that Fedex consolidates its US shipments destined to Australia in Sweden. Or, and here is evidence, (one of at least a few I found) that Fedex routinely stuff up and send OZ shipments via Sweden !!!

    Did you have to assemble the contents of your order before you used it?

    I hope not !! I paid a premium so I wouldn't have to spend time doing that stuff myself (as much as I might like to).

    BTW I thought LEGO comes from Denmark.

    Lego might come from Denmark, but IKEA definitely comes from Sweden!

    Clearly on the way to Austria before the Aussie backpacker in the mail room spotted it and re-routed.

    I've noticed that B&H now have a cheap shipping option called DHL Global Mail. Pricing a box of 8x10 HP5 it shows the price for this method as $17 as compared to $56 for UPS worldwide expedited, which would be the usual cheapest shipping. DHL journey time is estimated at 8 to 15 days vs 4 to 6 for UPS. If I increase the order to 2 boxes DHL goes to $25 and UPS to $58. I'm not sure if there is an order price limit to use DHL, e.g. how your order cannot be above $150 with FIMS when ordering from Freestyle.

    Freestyle orders usually goes out in a day or less. I live in Northern California and with the cheapest shipping, I get my order within 3-4 days. Always impeccably packed.
