First of all I live in Sweden and own an old dodge, you can buy parts in Sweden but it´s a very big difference what you can find here compared to home. I saw 6 old steel rims on ebay (junk for most people) and the seller didn´t want to ship them. I didn´t know about uship but he wrote in the auction: you can probably use uship and ship them anywere. The problem was still: to ship them from IN. to Sweden is going to be very expensive. But I ”know” a guy down in FL. who has shipped overseas for me before. Ok, let´s try to ship it from IN to Fl, that should be easier. First of all I need to see if my guy in FL has a container ready to go. I called him on monday and he says he has one that is leaving for Sweden next week. Now I´m in a hurry and I haven´t even bought the rims yet! I start my action on uship and the next day I have 3 different bids. I choose the cheapest one since it´s actually junk I´m going to ship + he had good feedback. Next step is to buy the rims and to get in touch with the seller which wasn´t so easy (you don´t get all the seller´s info just because you buy something from them+ he had the wrong number in his profile) it´s 6 hours time difference that was not making things easier. Anyway he picks the rims up and is headed to FL, I talk to my guy down there and suddenly he want me to leave them on another location, oops I need to talk to the shipper again and see if it´s ok with him. He says: no problem! Right now the rims are in FL and soon on their way to Sweden, thanks to uship and very good shipper.
