Does anyone on here know approximately how much it would cost to post an Xbox 360 (core system) from UK to USA? Just sold one on a competitors site and need to send an invoice to someone.

thanks in advance

Also wouldn't the 360 probably not work in the U.S. (different power supply, different region for games/dvd's etc).

I woud personally be rather suspicious about it, as they aren't exactly in massively short supply now, and I can't really think of any reason a UK/European version would be prefered over a U.S. one.


Call me cynical.


Anyway, to keep on topic, I would suggest something like UPS, Fed-Ex or DHL with full tracking, enough insurance to cover the cost of the goods, and well packaged.

I tried to send a Wah pedal (To be fixed) via Royal mail to USA(small custom company).
Needless to say, it wasn't sent.

£35 :eek: :eek: :eek:

It only cost £150 :p


I'm guessing the 360 would be roughly the same weight, or it may be by size or by g/cm3 etc.

I think this was insured.

Oh my, sold an Xbox on Ebay for 105 inc postage.
Went to send it, there was 4 parcels, come to about 140 just for postage, told them I'd go elsewhere and gave the guy a refund.
Was so much,
Resold it just to the UK, come to £35.

[EDIT] - WereWolf, agreed. Wont work in the US due to having different frequencies and half the voltage for a start.
