    Evening guys.


    I was on the DIY LED Express website looking for 3x GC-1500 enclosures and 1x CG-2000. When I got to the checkout they wanted $100+ for shipping which is ridiculous. Is anyone able to give me some direction as to where I can purchase these enclosures without the extreme shipping price?


    Thanks

    I get mine from HolidayCoro.com
    They are in the US though, so I'm unsure about international shipping.

    I'm in a very similar situation here in the UK. Outrageous shipping costs for a plastic box. I've seen it like this for a number of outlets too. It doesn't make sense to me ??

    Here's something I've just recently found and am considering. It's through eBay in the US so I'm not sure how it works for you. I get it reporting a total of £32 including shipping to the UK. Still expensive, but nowhere close to what I was seeing elsewhere. Also, I think you could contact seller for a deal on multiple units.

    I would do a search. Amazon has them with free shipping, however, don't know if that includes international. Surely somebody over there offers these boxes or something similar.

    I actually saw those boxes on eBay last night, but it was going to be $50 per unit or so, which is ridiculous. I think I'm just going to use plastic storage containers

    wasnt there a group buy of these a while ago? or am i getting it confused with something else?
    I would like to get about 4-6 of them, if anyone knows where in oz sells them. Or alternatively, where in the US i can get them from with a reasonable shipping cost.
