    Looking for help from an American member to buy something at eBay

    Hello,

    a friend from Poland is trying to buy something from an eBay dealer in the USA which doesn't want to send abroad. The article is a small key and it's offered for 20 $. Can any one of the US-members help me to get this key sent to Europe?

    I guess transport cost will be higher than the key itself but it would make someone really happy :-) The key is coming from an ex-german Silesian city where my polish friend was living for some time and he's still collecting old german stuff from this city. Payment would be done by me with Paypal.

    Regards, Alpini

    Hello Mr. Alpini,

    Perhaps as an alternative option, has your friend investigated this service:

    https://www.myus.com/?utm_source=pro...ntent=MyUSLogo

    Basically the US dealer ships to a "US address", which in turn is shipped to you..........

    Cheers
    Drew

    Marc, do you use them to ship militaria?

    I read their restrictions and it seems like all types of militaria are restricted.


    • Government, police or military uniforms, IDs and Badges (real or replica)
    • Military and law enforcement equipment


    https://www.myus.com/benefits/shippi.../restrictions/
    Wanted: Baton/Irritant rounds (inert) and associated items, .700 NE (inert) and boxes (empty), .32-40 cartridge boxes (empty), WW2 British shotgun cartridge boxes (empty), Greener Police Gun cartridge boxes (empty). Message me if you have any of these items for sale/trade.

    Wow, looking at the list above , it would be easier to tell what you are allowd to ship to the USA.
    So -for instance- an original German WW1 or WW2 Iron cross medal, a medieval helmet, a Dutch 1930's army overcoat would all be prohibited and confiscated?

    "MyUS" is just one of a number of "freight forwarding" services - here is a recent CHOICE review & list of others including MyUS (sorry it is bias for Aussies buying from the US)

    https://www.choice.com.au/shopping/o...rding-services

    Scroll down to the bottom for a comparison of other FF companies etc.

    Remember their primary "focus" appears to be the main stream corporate retail stores.................

    If you really read the small printed text of the european carriers their general conditions exclude nearly the same things. I think a lot of people violate these conditions without knowing them...
