Default Reasonable Cost Shipping from China

I need to buy some repair and replacement parts for a product made in China. The manufacturer ships only via Ocean and only every few months. Items ordered today will be here some time in mid to late June. I was wondering if anyone knows of a reasonably fast and affordable way to transport from China. DHL estimate was about $ 1600.00. I am estimating a box that will be approx. 45" x 30 "W x 12" H and weighing between 10 and 15 lbs..

well my last two SM jets were very large models and they cost about 1400-1600, for smaller parts I would think it wouldnt be any where near this amount unless its a big 6-8 heavy box

Round trip tickets are cheaper! Check the box in as luggage for that rate.

Have them use EMS. We ship out T-1 jets for $330.00 and the box is 57"x22"x19" and weighs about 27lbs

Yes EMS is a good option, I’ve shipped from Hong Kong with them, very fast service.
