If you are native or not, could you give some suggestions of a firma/courier? Friend says it's 60€ to ship a frame.
I am looking for something cheaper, I'm sure there must be.

Grazie!

Yes, we're out "there". Your question, however, isn't clear enough for us to help you.

"cheapest shipping FROM Italy to EU" is what you asked.

Italy is in the EU, no?

So perhaps if you were more specific to where you want your item shipped, someone here can be of assistance.

Being less acerbic also helps. :wink:

For a time there I thought everyone was gone for good.

My query is fairly simple/straightforward and self explanatory I would have thought.
I want to ship a frame from Italy abroad but within the EU. What are the best recommendations of an Italian courier and rates I should expect to get?

In the US for example, the answer might be US Post, or FedEx or UPS. The going rates are fairly common and well known for carrying out such a task.

Unsurprisingly DHL, FedEx or UPS.

Prefer local carrier, will likely be cheaper.

Specifying locality and an entire country in the same request is slightly obtuse don't you think.

It might help the Italian/Italian based people here to give you a recommendation if you actually stated where in Italy you want to ship your item from...

No.
I am simply looking for local/national couriers.

This is a common query people -- dont make it sound more difficult than it really is!

Then why not state where you are shipping the frame too rather than just saying the EU as prices may differ depending on distance from Italy and whether it can go via land or air to get there.

Thank you Roobay, you're a star. Unfortunately all of those shipping brokers are UK specific.

I was hoping your Italian counterpart might make some suggestions.

It can depend on the country you are shipping to, but you seem to be very cryptic about that.
