This could effect why businesses do not want to ship them to APO addresses.
You probably shipped it ground mail. i had a vendor on here ship an item to me via ground mail, expected delivery time 4-26 weeks.


SHIP ONLY PRIORITY MAIL TO APO/AE.

But hey, at the end of the day, I understand the issue at hand... I just don't think it's such a big deal. That's my opinion... and this being an open forum, I shared it with everyone.
OP sharing this with us was very informative. And just because some share their negative experiences I also see as informative. It allows others to make informed decisions. So far "the bitching session" has been coming from your direction about how long the posts are.

Shipping turned out to be $250 until the lip arrived and I had to go off base to meet the TNT driver and escort him on base to deliver since the box wouldn't fit in my car. After he gives me the lip he said I needed to pay 104 euros for customs fees. I had no idea about that and MB certainly didn't mention that prior to the transaction. I called them about it and they basically said tough shit. Over $400 to ship something that took 2 weeks to arrive.
I got a front lip through USPS - no sweat. Some vendors don't know what they can & can't ship USPS.

On the plus side, I now work for the VA near Boston....and Turner is just up the road!!

Ok so I emailed **********s before I started this thread and requested a quote for the VMR 710 wheels shipped to APO because I ordered thru PYspeed 12 days ago and still my order hasn't been shipped and I'm planing on cancelling the order if the order is not shipped by tomorrow. Well I got a reply back with a $325 for shipping alone; I replied back asking why is shipping so high when it is a domestic address, the reply I got was that they can do it for cheaper $180 Parcel but still no explanation on how they figured the shipping charges. If any one knows of another vendor that has the wheels with reasonable shipping charges let me know. I think that from now on I'm gonna offer to the vendors to just give me the Dimensions, weight, and their address and I'll prepaid the shipping online with USPS.

Are you stuck on the 710's? If not I would tell you to go get these....

http://stuttgartyardsales.com/item30...=SEARCH&ref=m3

Nice guy, met him a few weeks ago and those "should" fit. I am running Volk 19x9 and 19x10 with +22 front and back no problem.

No that is not me and I have no relationship to that seller other than I met him at a car meet. It would solve your wheel needs and Apex has a good reputation.

As far as shipping to APO, I will confirm that Turner and IND are good guys to deal with. Both shipped no problem and came in less than a week. Can anyone confirm that putting NY as the state will work in online order forms?

The problem is that I'm currently deployed but being ordering upgrade parts so they can be waiting on me to get back. I got 2 1/2 months left before I redeploy. I sent an email to the vendor and just got a reply that they are trying to push my order out. I think that I got lied to because I was told the wheels were in stock and I don't think they were! I pleced the order 12 days ago.

Ah I see, so is that your demo MW coupe sitting outside pentagon right now? Might be time to go take a test drive... Just kidding, I am sure she will be waiting for you in one piece when you get back. I got a demo also but mine was registered and never driven so demo discount but no miles. At least you will be getting back just in time to build her up and let it rip.

Yeah but this is why we pay for Priority shipping so it won't be shipped by vessel!!! 5 to 7 days delivery!!! Bottom line is that USPS charges as if you are shipping within the lower 48 States Priority so why are the vendors charging 3 times more its rates?

JP, have used NY for state on a couple of things with no issues where on-line form wouldn't take AE. Just put the AE in the same line after APO.

amen. thanks for posting. should be a sticky in vendor section.
i can't stand for vendors that are not willing to support our service members and their families because its a little more work to send us products.

Thanks everyone of you men and women for being brave enough to risk your lives for our country! I've never been in that situation but I am sure it is not easy being far away from your friends and loved ones for long periods of time.

Let me know if there is anything I can help out with and if the parts you guys want to order are within USPS specs we will be more than happy to ship everything out. Don't forget to mention you are military please
