Shipping parts from Italy

I have found a store in Italy that has some rare cranksets for pretty dang cheap. Problem is he doesnt want to ship outside of Italy.
Is there an expediter or some service that i can send the cranksets to in Italy and they will in turn send them stateside?

Backstory:
My roommates dad spends time in Italy and has a residence there, but after the seller receives payment he holds it for ten days before shipping the product. Wouldn't you know it the only person I know in Italy will be leaving in a few days. Not long enough to have them sent to him.

Depends on where in Italy. Many larger towns have Mailboxes Etc offices, which can wrap and ship internationally via the usual suspects.

More likely your supplier doesn't want to deal with the hassle of filling out customs declaration forms for international shipment. No (reputable) expediter can help with that, as it's the sender's responsibility to declare the contents and their value.

I'm here until the end of December if you want me to send it to you. PM me.
