I went to mail Gary Dutton a partial watch movement today…Person at PO told me I could only ship Express mail and it would cost $69.95…I have shipped to Australia before and I though I shipped stuff first class and it never cost that much…Is there anyone that has shipped to Australia lately and experienced higher than usual shipping costs…

Hi Gary, I got this from a quick google search:


"The U.S. Postal Service has TEMPORARILY suspended First Class Package International Service (as of September 3, 2021) and Priority Mail International (as of September 17, 2021) delivery to Australia due to carrier issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic."

Regards

Peter

Hi Guys,
All parts have arrived safely.
Even though it cost a bomb to send in my eyes it was worth it.
Look for pictures in my other post.
Cheers

So are we to assume then that EMS Express Mail is "covid free"? Do they double spray it?
