Does sound like a really good deal

Added a set and proceeded to the checkout to see what the shipping was going to cost and got the following

"We're sorry, but there are no shipping methods available for your order. Please choose a different shipping address or remove items from your order to decrease shipping weight. If you continue to get this message, please contact the site administrator."

I also got a message pop up saying to enter code "SHIP4HALF", but when I tried to apply it come up as an Expired or Invalid code - not sure if it is related to the Perth address?

Maybe someone with a freight forwarding service that give you a US address could have a look?

I've sent them an email to see if they can send it here...

Sending them here is possible.
But I found when looking at some other US suppliers that due to the size and weight of the skid plates, the shipping is pretty bloody expensive and hence like the Rock Rails works out cheaper to buy locally :-(

Not bad...

Not too bad, but it is that extra shipping cost that still kills the deal for me
If you are talking -
$399.99 USD for the skid plates
$370.67 USD for shipping
$770.66 USD from a quick Google search equals roughly $873.05 AUD at the moment
Our Banks will likely slug you extra fees for the exchange and give you a shitty rate too

I am picking a set up tomorrow morning for $880 AUD?

So for the extra couple of bucks, I would rather support a local business and also have some local support if things don't fit quite right during the install

So if I can get them for that price here in Perth, I am sure that you could find a set in Brissy cheaper just need to stay clear from the Stealers!
