Let's get smart about freight

Ok, so i get the vibe that there is a few Aussies ordering through blackops,

So I was thinking if we can get a bit smarter, and if blackops can organise a freight forwarding company, we might be able to save ourselves a bit of cash.

So if any Aussies are keen to order Maybe we could post in here and try organise somethin?

Dunno if this will work, if not I'll just order solo.

Re: Let's get smart about freight

I have been thinking along these line as well. I have had experience with bringing cars etc into Australia over the years and I thought I had a line on a container a week or so ago but it has fallen through.

Maybe if we have enough we can get a bulk discount off Chad at Black Ops. What do you reckon Chad?

Looking for 4 x 22's with Vreds, Road Magnets, HPS brake pads and I really want the front splitter but can't justify it to myself.

Re: Let's get smart about freight

The Idea sounds good but I have gone the lonely (expensive) road I have bought most of my parts already X USA using Black OPS and others and have slowed the purchases due to the costs. I live in Perth but if there was a way to share the freight to here there are other goodies I have my eye on.

Re: Let's get smart about freight

We have a lot of Australian customers that order through us, freight all really depends on how fast you want it to be honest, we just shipped 4 pallets via slow boat for about 2k USD, about 600kgs in parts, wheels, transmissions, supercharger kits, you name it, it was for 2 separate customers that both live close to each other.

Aren't these cars high performance enough lol.

Perhaps once tuning options get better i'll look into them. For now, the only tuning I have actually seen gave very poor increases for the money. Do your Sydney resources have any experience with the '14 SRT's yet?
