I'm trying to estimate the shipping costs of a paradise estate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Where are you from and where are you planning to ship to? or is it just general and you dont have a buyer yet or plan to perhaps auction it..or are you planning to buy one? :what:  Sorries I'm not being nosy but shipping sizes and weight restrictions/costs vary from country to country. For some countries you would need to ship it in 2 -4 parcels... other countries it may be possible to send it in one big box.
Plus it will need a lot of protection and very secure packaging in a box (or more than one box) as its very fragile plastic prone to breaking, so that will affect the weight and therefore the cost too.
I hope thats not too confusing :blush:  I have a Paradise Estate but I didnt have it shipped to me I collected it in person and I think it was packed into 3 or 4 boxes.
I know that some other members here bought the PE online or from other Arena members though so maybe they can tell you how much they payed?...

Im in ontario canada and its in ontario. Ive got my eye on one and I`m just trying to get the dimensions so that I can punch them into Canada post online quotes to get a rough ballpark.  I need the approximate length, width, height and weight.
I do have one so this would posibly be an up-grade. I just cant get to mine easily to measure it.
Thanks

The problem on dimensions and even on weight is that its going to depend on how someone boxes it up unfortunately. :( And with a box that size even being a little out on scale could mean a dramatic price difference.
Thank you Matcha for my gorgeous Baby Fifi avi :hug:

I know that the actual shipping box will increase the price, I'm just trying to figure out what the minimum starting price would be. I know it will be more than that

If your purchasing it from someone, why not ask them what roughly the shipping charge is going to be?

The problem is the playset is so big!! that it is hard for someone to just go and grab theirs to take measurements.   I know personally mine is packed away (not in a box either).  Plus if it was out, I don't even have a box or boxes to pack it in to let you know what the measurements would be.  I am sorry no one could be of help, it's just one of those items that's not easily accessible.  :huh:

This :nod:  I can access mine but ATM I'm currently sorting out and selling stuff on evilbay again (so everything is everywhere :drunk:  :blush:  )  and I dont have boxes the right size for such a big playset. At least with it being in the same country you can save *some* on shipping. I think your seller should work it out though TBH - it would be easier since they are the one who wants to sell , so they must have access to it and they know what kind of boxes/packing stuff they are going to use  :awake:
