If you want the parts removed from this box and repacked, it would cost much less to ship. For overseas orders this is absolutely necessary. For USA customers the same is true and also the USPS shipping calculator has proven to be unreliable with big box sizes (near balloon rate) so please ask and as always- we will be happy to double check.
