Hey gang-

I am having no end to frustrations trying to ship a uke to Austrailia. Fed Ex keeps calling me saying they can't do it, I go there and correct something they have done wrong with the address (twice now), then they call me 5 days later saying they have another problem. The guy I sold it to is probably pissed. I would be. Hell, I am! haha.

Anyone have experience shipping down under? Who's best to use? I am done with Fed Ex for international. Shame too, they've always been so easy to use for local stuff.

USPS might be the best way

I used the Postal Service and had no problem at all.

USPS should be OK, John. And cheaper.

I use USPS to send coffee to friends in OZ with great success, and reasonable cost.

USPS Priority is the way to go, also sometimes sending it USPS Express is just a few bucks more. Be sure to fill out a white CP72 customs form.
