Shipping games from the US to EU

Post by driph » October 2nd, 2008, 6:24 pm

Has anyone here shipped an arcade cabinet from the US to the EU? Any info or recommendations that you could throw my way?

With the value of the dollar dropping, I'm guessing it's a lot more viable of an option for EU collectors than it used to be, as I'm getting interest from overseas in one of the cabinets I'm selling.

Hahah no, it's a Zombie Raid.

Door to door it was around $1k a few years ago, probably more now. Air freight to your local airport would be cheaper if you could collect and take it through customs yourself. Sea freight even less obviously.
