has anyone mail ordered anything other than DVD’s, books and smallish stuff?

i’m contemplating ordering some pro audiohardware similar to the KORG padKontrol i posted about earlier.

thing is,…..

i would really rather not go postal ( pun intended ) if it were to be damaged cos i’m expecting the shipping to be atleast half the value of the damn thing itself.

its a heavy bastard.

so let me know if youve ordered PC’s, laptops, monitors, or anything else fragile, moderately heavy and expensive ( musical instruments even?).

i’d really like to hear if you got them in one piece and which courier service you guys used.

i’ll be ordering from the US or UK in case that makes a difference to your replies and suggestions, if any come ๐Ÿ˜›

cheers ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t really know much about stuff like that cause my Dad usually does it for me .It usually ends up being the same price You would buy them in kuwait cause thoes shipping companies impose heavy taxes to protect the already existing companies(of the products) here in kuwait.
    Not sure if it’s true but that’s what my dad complains about.

  1. cheers for theinfo OJ ๐Ÿ˜€
    i figured it”ll cost quite a bit which is why i’m really apprehensive about ordering the stuff.
    i dunno may or may ot go ahead with it cos i cant find what i’m looking for here, and dubai doesnt have emin stock either.

  2. ask ms baker.. she ordered her macbook through the net

  3. yeah.. my sis and best freind ordered thier laptops from online, but they are in the US ๐Ÿ˜›

    i know, i wasnt much help, but i just wanted to comment hehe

    but i think DHL is the best. i just got a phone sent to me from kuwait and it was sent through DHL. i dont know how much they charge for shipping, but i think its a bit costly.

    anyway.. good luck ๐Ÿ˜‰

    damn q8techdrive, didnt know those agents had an actual ban on their stuff. i mean theres so much from sony that they simply dont stock that a ban like that sounds silly. thanks for the suggestions those services do look quite intrigueing.
