    This might be trivial, but I wrote to ComGateway and ShopAndShip and both have categorically said there is absolutely no prohibition on sending wooden items with their services.

    They confirmed that blanks (I described them, size and what they were used for!) and veneers are of zero issue whatsoever.

    Both are happy to assist.

    Yep, it's just Shipito rearranging the "t" and "p" in their name.

    Thank you for all your advice and responses. In short the product is flammable
    and cannot be sent by Air, hence Sea Freight. It also cannot be sourced in Australia, yet.
    I will advise on the best option after further research. What prompted my inquiry was that
    for a purchase of $100 US, the freight cost via Sea from the supplier was $700 US. So
    I thought I could do better, eh. Drillit.

    I have heard of whole shipping containers being bought to Australia from China for $2000, so unless your $100 of product is a huge bag filled with gas, this price sounds unreasonable.

    Try reach out to Sarah over at US to OZ for a quote?

    at that price, it sounds like you are being quoted LCL -- Less than Container Load -- for the shipping.


    what is the product? the brains trust may be able to suggest a viable ship-able alternative.
