Shipping companies on RSOV

I'm about to put in an order on RSOV but I don't know which shipping company to use.. Theres TNT, UPS, and DHL that are within my shipping cost price range. I know that UPS has insane brokerage fees but I don't know about the other two.:banghead:

I really hope you're not planning on ordering actual airsoft guns... if you are, no matter who you use, you won't get it.
All 3 will end up costing you about the same otherwise as all will have brokerage and duties fees once it arrives (speaking from experience).
if it's just parts you're after, you can find them at Canadian prices, from Canadian retailers that will be about the same once you factor in shipping, duty, brokerage and taxes.

All of those will rape you with brokerage fees. Better stick with Hongkong Post and/or EMS.

Ok thanks and don't worry, I wasn't buying any guns because I'm fully aware that it's illegal. So even though EMS is more expensive, it's actually worth the extra money because I don't get surprised raped by insane brokerage fees?

EMS more expensive than DHL, UPS, or DHL? Shouldn't be...

Go with Airmail or EMS.

Some companies like to suprise you with their fees. I order something from FedEx the guy handed over the package and I was like thats it he said yes no money due and then got a letter 4-5 months later asking for $50 for fees. I am sure DHL and UPS do similar.

Exactly what philly said. DHL sent me a 300$ bill 2 months after I got the package.

I asked them to provide me with proof that I owe them that (like something I would've signed me that entitles me at paying any fee they give me after I get the package), and they didn't give me any proof. So I haven't paid, but to be honest I live in the fear of some 7' 300lb DHL debt collector coming to my house

So as much as you can... just stay away from them.
