: Large Lot of 2000 AD Progs Shipping to USA
: Maraxusofkeld 15 August, 2018, 02:33:52 PM
Hey guys, I have a fever to start putting together a run of 2000 AD, but am having a hard time finding large runs in decent shape with sellers willing to ship to the USA. Can anyone help?

I shipped a full 2000AD and Megazine (& peripherals) collection to the US about a decade ago, and it's not trivial.  Lots of weighing, special packing crates, lots of time, lots of money.  Definitely non-trivial.

If 2000AD would digitize their back catalog, I'd be sorely tempted to replace the paper with bytes. The byte is light. 

I might be selling them in about 30 years (because of impending death), but don't hold your breath.

I understand it is expensive and would be ok with 100 issue runs at a time.

Hi there, I have shipped a COMPLETE 2000AD Prog Collection last year, to Las Vegas infact, I found the cheapest Courier & it cost £500.36, that was a service of around 5/7 days.

There were 10 Boxes & I think the weight was Approx 140KG

I do & can ship world wide & do have loads of collections & Progs available too!!

Having crated up my prog and magazine collection a few weeks ago (after a wardrobe broke under the weight!), I can well appreciate the huge shipping cost......it's a huge amount of paper. Outside of "local pick up" I imagine it's a real headache to sell on.

Can you send me a pm? Do I need to have a certain number of posts before the forum will allow me to private message other members?

Hi,

What run of Progs/ Meg/ Specials are you looking for?

Another one who has recently moved their progs (mine were due to moving home) - it certainly is logistically challenging, and that's just when you're taking them from shelves - removal van, then removal van up some stairs and back on to shelves!

Tried to pm members back. Sounds silly but system is not letting my reply? Am I doing something wrong?


Thanks,
Dave

For some reason, your membership was unassigned to a category. I've fixed that now, so DMs should work.
