Default Buying a Blu Ray from Australia to ship to the UK.

Hi All,

I've been looking for a way to Pre Order a Blu Ray (that is only being released in the UK on DVD) from Australia and have it shipped to the UK.

Does anyone out there know of a trusted retailer? I've looked around at two, EZY DVD and JB Hi-Fi. Any of them any good?

I've bought Blu Rays from other countries before just not Australia.

Thanks

:-)

I don't know about shipping to the UK specifically, but I've placed 12-15 orders from JB HiFi and had them shipped to me In San Diego, CA.

In fact, I have 2 more shipments en route. Shipping always take 2-3 days to process and about 7 days to arrive in the US.

I've never had any damaged or missing discs, nor have I had any delays due to shipping or customs.

Both are fine as used both in past.
A few points:
For a single BD shipping is cheaper with JBHifi as they charge per item. EzyDVD have a minimum shipping charge of two units so more unless you are ordering two BDs obviously.
EzyDVD though deduct GST (Australian VAT which is around 10%) from international sales. JBHifi don't. The prices on their sites are GST inclusive so what you end up paying with EzyDVD will be a bit less than quoted.
JBHifi have regular (every few months) 20% off flash sales for a few days, although pre-orders are excluded and most recent was last weekend, so not another one for a few months.
For already released titles if the item is out of stock, JBHifi get in these special orders much faster.

Another option for Australian titles is fishpond.com although range is limited and pricing can be hit and miss. They charge UK customers in sterling and the price quoted includes shipping.

If you don't mind waiting alot of Australian titles turn up on Amazon with marketplace shipping. Also I have bought a few off Ebay just check the postage as it can be alot from Oz.

I always use ebay seller beatthebombau They often have free postage, also their prices are usually cheaper than their competitors, and they wrap a strong piece of card around the case for protection.

Most of my orders with them have arrived in a week too.

I'm waiting for the Columbo Season 1 BD set from JB, I've never had issues with import duty from them before but the last disc I had from them was marked as much higher than the actual price. Got a bad feeling about this one as it cost about 25.

Received Columbo Season 1 from JB today, clearly marked as $39 (19). It sailed through customs, must've been lucky

Was it marked as a gift? as that raises the limit.

No, Only the amount was filled in on the sticker. Isn't the gift limit about 36?

Counting my lucky stars for this one.
