shipping to France help!

I have a frame that a possible buyer wants to have shipped to France.
USPS shows the box dimensions to big for shipping.
45L x 30H x 10W 15lbs
How do you all ship frames Int'l at a reasonable price?

Those dimensions put you at 125 inches (girth plus length). You need to get it under 108 inches to have a chance at decent shipping.

At least France has a 108 inch limit. Some countries limit out at 79 inches!

If you can't get the bike down to 108, I would consider just sending him a frameset with hubs (if that fits under 108). Part of the challenge is frame size too. What size frame are you trying to ship?
