not sure if I have this in the right area but anyway I haven't used these guys before and I know they have a good reputation, but I was wondering about the postage charges, especially from anyone downunder who uses them.

 

It says $8 for the first item to ship to Aussie/NZ and then $3 for each item after that. Does this mean if I ordered 6 CDs at once I'd be stung for $23 shipping :yikes:

 

Compared to other overseas places I've used... usually the more you buy the better deal for shipping, so I'm not sure if I've understood NEH properly.

Unfortunately,i think it would be $23.00.For US orders its $3.00 and then $1.00 and so on.Somebody correct me if im wrong here.

That's not a bad deal. It would cost me 24$ at Canada Post and that's without including the price of the bubble cushion mailers at 50 cents each. So 23$ for 6 cd's, with the jewel cases sounds about right.

I got an order recently and was sure I didn't cost that much, but maybe it did. I agree, as much as I love NEH, that seems very high. I adore places that ship without cases.

ok thanks. that's too steep. It costs me $11 shipping for 6 CDs WITH cases from Perris and other places are cheaper as well. They just don't happen to have what I want and NEH do :P

AOR Heaven are similar prices and ship without cases. I always loved those guys.

I've heard mixed reviews about AOR but maybe I'll try them myself if you found them ok and the postage is good. thanks :tumbsup:

 

I sent 10 CDs to someone in the States with cases (although thin ones) the other week for $8, granted NZ dollars but it's all relevant so I'm not up for paying $23.

Yeah, I think AOR Heaven's probably a pretty good bet. Plus they'll have all you desire, I dare say. It's easy to get sucked into buying from the US at the moment due to the exchange rate, but I noticed a lot of NEH's prices have gone up accordingly. Not knocking them... I still rate NEH very high. But I think the better deals are probably still at AOR Heaven. Probably. :)

 

By the way... you shipped 10 CDs in cases to the US for $8?! I'm moving to NZ! I sent about 7 CDs the other day without cases and paid $17. F*ck Australia Post.

well I may have misled you there to prove how good NZ/NZ Post is :lol: I don't trade, just sent some CDs to a friend over there and sent it snail mail, which means they could get it in 4 months to a year .. maybe that was why it was so cheap :blink:

Ah, okay. Yeah... that method's not too badly priced here either. I've never used it but they usually quote a very nice price.

I can very much recommend MusicBuyMail. They have everything on stock and if not, they will get it for you (Jez will probably agree ... ! :))

 

Their shipping rates should be very reasonable as well, similar to AOR Heaven (from Germany).

I recommend both NEH and Aor Heaven. Top notch service from both of them!

 

I too buy from NEH and could not agree more. The last order arrived here in Oz in 6 days and the way they are packed, they can not get damaged.

The best thing about NEH is you know you are going to get them and get them in pristine condition and get them fast.

If that means paying an extra couple of $ for shipping, then I'm more than happy to go that way :tumbsup:

As of about two years US Postal Services do not offer snailmail/by_ship services anymore. The cheapest one can send a 6 CD package with jewel cases to Australia/NZ would be via first class for $13.60 given all CDs are under 4oz and no extra padding (the price go incrementally up with $1.65 per every 4oz extra!)

 

Alternately, one can stuff 6 CDs with jewels in flat-rate priority-mail cardboard envelope for $11.95 (was $11 a month ago before the last postage price rise). I guess this is how Perris Records ships their packages and havent updated their prices yet.

    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
