Direct Link To This Post Topic: Sites That Ship to Aus-
    Posted: Jun/15/2010 at 3:33am
Hey guys,

So many sites i go on dont ship any decent brands to aus? do any of you guys know of any sites apart from sierra that will ship to aus? I plan to get my board from sierra, but there are no boots/bindings available!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Scott

most other snowboard sites are more expensive than sierra in terms of their products and also their shipping.

a list includes:

www.dogfunk.com
www.backcountry.com
www.tactics.com

i'm sure there's more around but those 3 are the more popular ones

They may ship to AU, but they've got a huge list of brands (especially the popular ones) that cannot be shipped outside the US.

I think buysnow.com ships to AU, but you need to drop 'em an email

you can always use a buying proxy - essentially the items get shipped to an address in the US and then they forward it on to you for a fee

try thefind.com if you're running out on ideas for snow gear websites. Some online stores do offer coupons when you search their products via this website.

priceusa.com is a site I can recommend using for ordering from the US. I've used them to order a laptop and they just take a 5% commission which is actually quite reasonable.

I've tried ordering clothes from US stores but at checkout postage is ~$100USD so I've resorted to eBay US where you'll often get better rates.

Eternalsnow.com is another website. I bought some boots off them but they were more expensive than sierra. But sierra didn't have my size. What you need is a friend in the US who you can send stuff to and have them repackage and send it to you. That often works out pretty cheap.

I've been looking around and checking sites for a number of years and Sierra is the best i have found so far. The free shipping on orders over $500 to Australia is just too hard to beat

i use this warehouse for shipping items within the USA so that i can come and do a local pick up, but they also offer package forwarding: cbiusa.com
 
Check it out, their rates for packages are reasonable, but not too sure about their forwarding service?
 
Oh and eldolocal, they are the same company, their websites actually share the same stock quantities and items from what i have double checked.

i have tried dogfunk, backcountry (actually they are same group), altrec, REI before. They can ship internationally including Aus. Personally i like dogfunk. nice service and speedy shipping - they use UPS.
 
But if you want burton, sorry they can't - use SierraSnowboard then, especially you can enjoy free shipping for over $500 - no tricks!

I have found that sierra is by far the best to ship to aust. A lot of the other websites charge a lot of money for shipping and have massive restrictions on what they cant ship to aust. I think its only burton that cant be shipped to aus but i just dont purchase that product.

I know lots of people from Australia who use this service to get goods that dont ship outside of the US - I think they only charge 5%

if there is anything from those sites that you actually want, postage is a lot more expensive than sierra.

Where else can you snowboard between Gum trees?

sierra is the best hands down... i ordered a sierra RC on friday last week (so it would have been processed for shipping monday) and got here today... only cost $50 for international priority shipping too.

cannot be beaten!

You may consider SS here. FedEx services did impress me. Just a couple of week ago, I made an order on Wednesday and could got my stuff on Saturday - reliable and trackable. I tried other sites before which they use UPS - in my case they need 2-3 days more for shipping to me at the other side of the planet - Hong Kong. The main reason is that for UPS the package would travel within the US across 4 states at least before taking off. As you may be aware of the recent promotion on the front page of the SS site, Australia is on the spotlight...go and check it out or even make an order and I am sure you would find it lovely.Big smile

Yeah, in my opinion your best bet is to wait for sierra to get their 2011 stuff in. Buy that and get it shipped to AUS.

i have bought stuff from dog funk before and used a shipping company (shipito.com) to ship the stuff over to aus. costed me like 130$ to send over 2 jackets, 2 pants, a pair of boots, goggles and gloves. They repacked all this into one box - so they do provide a nice service

but sierra does provide the best free shipping service - I can't find anyone else that would provide this to australia.

its so painful coz stock is limited now and looks like we have to wait to sept/oct before stuff comes in...

Sierra's shipping is top quality and so fast. $50 AUS to ship a board and gets here in less than a week. Can't be beaten

BBstar is right - the problem now is that its the end of season there is no gear / sizes left so we have to wait till then

so far i have ordered a few times from Sierra and their shipping and service is fast and great. Also if you pool together with a few friends you can get over $500 USD and then shipping is free for international :)

PS: yes we are all waiting for new stock heh
