We've received requests to ship enclosures all over the world, but the costs have all over the board: for some countries, shipping costs are reasonable, and for others, the prices are through the roof.

Unfortunately, there's no getting around the fact that enclosures are heavy and big and thus expensive to ship. Depending on the size of the enclosure, shipping overseas could be anywhere from $100US to $800. Shipping to one country in Europe could be $80US, but then shipping to a city right across the border in another country could be six times that amount.

On top of that, we're too small a company to collect VAT and sales taxes for every country. Just managing fees for Canada requires a separate calculation for each province, each of which can use not only different tax rates but various government agencies as well. We have no choice but to punt handling of local taxes to customers.

So if you calculate shipping for your country and its expensive, it's not because we're trying to make money on shipping, we only break even on shipping and pass along any volume discounts from the shippers to the customer. We are merely showing the calculated shipping costs from the various carriers precisely as what we have to pay.
