Dr Honda's Australian Customers

Could those of you who are after a set of Dr Honda's velocity stacks please reveal yourselves and indicate if you are interested in consolidating your orders into 1 parcel.
US$43 is a bit stiff for 1 set, when we can fit a few sets in the same size box, for the same price.
Thanks in anticipation.

Apologies if I am breaking forum convention, but it's better than guessing who are Australian residents.

G'day mate,

Hey Bristunt

We have a few PMs running around on OzFiretorm trying to work out how we can best sort out getting all the stacks to us as cheaply as possible.
If you could drop me a pm we can get the order(s) in.

Hi Guys,

The larger box from the US Postal Service will cost $52, and by the end of the day, I will know how many stacks I can safely fit in it.

Regardless, once you guys know how many sets need to get down there... I will do the foot work to find you guys the best shipping price.

Hi Guys,

OK... It looks like I can get 5 sets into the medium box, and 9 sets into the large box.

BUT... this leaves NO room for error. If the box gets crushed, so will the stacks. So it's your call.

To get that many stacks to fit, one pr has to be stacked inside each other (like stacking cups on a shelf) and then I would rotate how they sit. (one set up, and one set down)

Stacking the stacks together doesn't bother me too much. I will put a wrap of thin packing foam around one, and vacuum pack them together so they don't move. It's the side to side clearance to the box wall that I'm worried about.


My personal comfort zone would be 4 in the medium box, and 6 in the large box.

Just an FYI. In the states... I'm only going to put 1 set in the medium box for safety. (not stacked together)

Once you figure out how many sets, and the shipping point, just make a post here. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

OK... 4 sets would work nice. At that level, you guys would be paying the same for shipping, as the guys in the states. (about $10.50 each)

Just an FYI.

I sent out the paypal invoices, but I held off for any of the guys in Australia until you guys figure out what you want to do.

Also... I had one order with a credit card. I held that one too. (you have not been charged yet)

That order would probably be Flinnt as he said he was going it alone and had ordered.

We are ready for a PayPal invoice for the Aussies now as we are going to submit the order later today once we have all the details.
