Large Lot of 2000 AD Progs Shipping to USA
« on: 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,

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.

Hello

I have a large collection and I am happy to ship to the USA at minimum cost. I can provide any issues you would like from 1  to prog 600 in excellent condition.

Hey - realize I’m late to this thread... I’m in the US and brought all my 2000ad and JD Megazines with me from UK.  Considering letting them go, been talking with local comic book store...  It’s basically 2000ad between 1982 and 2014, and JD Megazine between mid 90s and 2014, and a few other odds and ends.  PM me if you’re interested.  Shipping might be an issue though, as others observed it’s super heavy...
