    How much should it cost to ship four rackets from France to the USA?

    Assume normal 2 week delivery (French Postal Service; La Poste?). Racket sized box weighing about 5 pounds (around 2.5 kg).

    I'm thinking about $40-ish. 30 Euros?

    Merci beaucoup. :)

    Hi, checked this with the experts in our shipping department. They suggested FEDEX and estimated around 25€. Would be about 35$.

    Thanks for the info.

    TW probably gets (or should get) a substantial discount from Fed Ex over the rest of us mere schlubs who pay retail.

    Whenever I have looked at shipping something internationally with Fed Ex or UPS, they are usually much higher than USPS International; like a multiple of 3.

    Please give me TW's Fed Ex account number so I can share in the savings. :)

    I ended up agreeing to $45 to ship 4 rackets from France to the USA so that sounds about right.

    You are welcome. If you add costs for the package, paperwork etc. 45$ seems to be a good deal.

    it depends which state? do you have a FedEx account?
    Look up DHL, too.
    I personally shipped back and forth 4 racquets + bag with UPS and Fed-Ex, cost higher every time, last time 3 months ago Fed-EX charged USD 135!
