    Anyone have experience shipping a Vintage SVT or SVT in general to Europe?
    I'm trying to find the best price and best place to ship it through (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL etc.)

    Thanks team.

    You will need to order an export model at 220 volts. Step up transformers eat electronics. SVT's in Europe Are very expensive, but still, make sure you compare with shipping, the higher cost of an export model, and you will be charged VAT.
    It will ABOLUTELY need to ship it in a custom flight case.
    An SVT classic in England is 1990euros. I imagine that is still cheaper than shipping one.
