Thats a good idea to do a test run. But do an online order form and go thru it all the way to the final buy button. For a small purchase for an international buyer, the shipping costs will probably triple the total costs. I found that out with the $10 DVD. And then when it gets to the buyers country, UPS or FedEx will add a brokerage fee on top of local taxes.If you want to build some confidence in their reliability doing business, order some small part that you'll need for your conversion. Something "big enough" to be an order that won't get lost in the cracks, but small enough that you haven't lost a bunch of money if things go wrong. GPAS sells parts as well as full kits. Try them out in the real world.
I understand that it's frustrating that he's not answering e-mails, but it's also not the end of the world. Instead of worrying about what might happen, test what will happen. It's the only way you'll know for sure.
When I need to order from a US company I make sure they ship USPS. Canada Post doesn't ever charge me brokerage fees. If it's gotta go by courier, I ship it to Louisiana and niece stores it for me till I go pick it up and carry it across the border. But that is kinda unique for me.
You guys in the US have it good for shipping.
If a call was made @ 5:30 PM Israeli time, it will be 9:30 AM Nebraska time. All the office BS is out of the way and people are working. I'd give them a try. If that don't work, PM me and I'll call them and tell them "Answer your E Mails folks, you're holding up the show". It don't cost me anything to call the US. Wait till a weekday.
I got nothing better to do than aggravate some people. It seems my wife don't nibble the hook anymore.:gig:
