Shipping to England..how hard is it?
I have a Tac One that a Brit is interested in buying.
What are the pros and cons of shipping to England?
He has no feedback and only 2 posts on MCB & AO.
What is involved in shipping overseas and is it "safe" for the seller.
I shipped some Ebay items to Germany and the buyer claimed they never arrived. Tracking # only worked to the US border.
USPS was of no help.
I wound up refunding him and lost around $100 in the deal. I dont want to do that again.

There are a few UK Members here, ask him for his feedback on the sites over there - hopefully someone can vouch for him!

It is the buyers responsibility to know if they can safely have the item or not. They need to assure you that they understand the risks. Kind of surprised that when you shipped to Germany, you didn't get a customs form number. It acts much like a delivery confirmation number, but is easier to track if it is held up in customs.

Ship it priority mail and insure the heck out of. That insurance will save your butt if that situation happens again. Get a quote off USPS.com. It will cost a bunch, but the buyer pays the shipping. I would also put both of your phone numbers on the customs form. Also, do not mark it as a gift. If you do mark it as such, you cannot insure it.
Also, do what others have said and check if he has anyone with feedback who can vouch for him.
