Here is their response:
Can you please provide me with the package dimensions and weight, for
a consignment of 80 unwaxed cassettes and the 5 spring clips.
Just to clarify you are looking for 2 of the complete Hogg "superpacks" each consisting of 40 casettes. This is the size unit used in the US with our 10 frame equipment. External dimensions of the super are 16.25 x 20 inches.x 4.5 inches tall. Note that the casette pack or superpack dimensions are smaller, These need to be placed in a bigger box for protection during shipping, A complete superpack or a complete super goes into a box that is 24 x 21 x 9 inches. The complete super weighs 12 pounds in the outer box. The superpack weighs 9 pounds.
We can also ship an economy pack consisting of 4 of the superpacks in a box that is 22x 18 x 16 and weighs 50 pounds.
There is another way of getting freight from USA to AU that I would
like to explore.
We have shipped items to Australia via Shopmate where we ship to the western Pacific coast of the US and then Shopmate ships to AU. It seems to work well.
I will need to obtain suitable super and packing timbers, as import
of timber may require irradiation to comply with Import rules.
We can ship supers to AU> Finished kiln dried timber seems to go through just fine. I would suggest perhaps getting one super to use as a pattern, and then have supers made in country. Alternately we can send plans but there are some little things that are critical and you may want a sample.
A friend asked how many sets of 80 cassettes and 5 springs would fit
on a pallet and what price discount would apply for that size
We can fit 16 economy packs meaning 64 superpacks each consisting of 40 casettes on a pallet. I cansend costs to anyone who is interested. Please contact me if you need to know.
Can you also obtain a price for freight of the pallet to Sydney.
We need to consider Insurance, Import Duty and Taxes for the
consignment arriving in Australia.
I can work up a pallet quote if your friend wants to pursue this.
If you would like to contact them direct I can SMS you the email address.
