Machine 7 UK 25yr Sale

Post by Edmond »

Anybody ordering parts from Machine 7 in the UK, they have a 25yr Anniversary Sale. I wanted to order some body repair sections from them but the shipping is 4 times the cost of the parts, maybe if someone is ordering stuff we could do a group buy and split the shipping. TIA

Have found many times that my own courier is cheaper then the one used by the supplier.

Maybe get some quotes from Aremax, or TNT

Shipping worldwide is messed up at the moment, especially seafreight.
I have a cube container coming back from the UK but only at the end of January, still has some space in it.
If it's too low, you're too old :twisted:

So I landed up just ordering a door post repair panel and a reverse light switch the door post panel was the red high quality thick metal one a whole 10 pounds for it altogether with shipping it was around 38 pounds so about R800 bucks still cheaper than the R1350 local for the cheapy door post repair panel
