Ordering from BHphotovideo.com to australia. What type of shipping do you use?

Hey im about to buy a Kx from this site cause ive heard only good things about it and the price is great, but im just wondering which shipping method people who regularly buy from here use. The UPS worldwide is cheapest and quickest but i just read a few horror stories about them.

Thanks

Chris

When i ordered one of my lenses i was working away so i went for the cheapest one (not ups), took a couple of weeks but that wasn't an issue, package came just fine. BH was good to deal with

Hi Chris,

A little off topic, but in case you didn't know- if you first click the button in my signature and then place a B&H order, PentaxForums.com gets credited for the sale and a percentage is donated to the site, which can be applied as site supporter status over here. We'd appreciate it if you did so prior to placing your order!

Hi--I've ordered several things from B&H with no problems to Canberra using the cheapest method presented. Never had an issue. I even had to return an item once because of my stupidity. There were no issues.

Cheers, Charles

Question, Adam. Though honestly I've been an Adorama customer (No implied diss on B&H, solid folks) longer than I've been here, (since the mysterious and shadowy days 'Before the Internet,' actually, ) is there a way to 'represent' besides clicking through those?

Nope unfortunately- their systems aren't the best. We do have a button for adorama too, though.
