Question Request from across the pond

I am always looking for something different and came across a Renntec Grab handle/Sport rack for a SRAD.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Rennte...Q:GB:1123#shId

Since I have not found anything like this in North America and believe they are discontinued now.... I may be interested .. depending on shipping.

The Item says 9,999.00 to ship to Canada. I contacted the seller and he said it wouldn't be worth it to ship to Canada. He quoted in a message actual shipping would be 55.00 ($87.51 Canadian)

Question..... For those that ship overseas ... is that reasonable or is the guy just being lazy and not wanting to ship?

Another question would someone in the UK be willing to accept shipping and resend to me ... if that would still be less expensive?

Re: Request from across the pond

The last thing I sent to the USA was 15 ish and that was for a 5 day signed for tracked service.

Will check a rough price to canada, but I would say you have been overquoted.

Would gladly onward ship to you if needed.

Re: Request from across the pond

Ripper I've shipped a heap to the states. My guess on postage for the item would be aprox 30. Like Scooby I'm happy to help you I'm any way, shout up if you need it.

Re: Request from across the pond

John, you have my helmet yet? That guy is a real piece. I wanted pics to verify condition as many areas were not shown, he said he would, but never did. I have exchanged words with him.... Not cooperative.

Re: Request from across the pond

Here is a message I got from the seller today......

Thanks for order for the Renntec carrier, when the item was being packed we found it had a Bandit 'fit kit' with it rather that the correct GSXR kit, we have checked all the Renntec kits in stock but have not been able to locate it. We have ordered a new kit from Renntec but this will take a few days. We can hold the order until it arrives here or refund your purchase.
Please advise which option you wish to take.
Apologies for the inconvenience!

Best Regards

Keith Bucklkey

Good communication even though he made a mistake. Most sellers would just wait a few days to ship without saying anything. I say stick with it if you really want it.

Re: Request from across the pond

Nice to see the seller communicating and at least being up front & honest.
I'd stick with it also.
