Keripo (1 year ago) #2637346The price ends up being the same or more expensive if you are shipping over a lot of heavy stuff (e.g. books and doujinshis), unless you do shipment by sea, which could take months. Plus you get to unpack things the moment you arrive. This only works for the first 2 luggage bags or so though before the added luggage price becomes ridiculous (and off course, you only have two hands).

Sorry, busy at work.
I agree. I did contemplate to mail loot (not just anime stuff but other travel souvenirs) instead of bringing them with me to the airplane. Books are really heavy. There was once I almost exceeded my luggage weight.
Another concern is, if it is too heavy, the custom folks will pay attention to you more :P

tanaka (1 year ago) #2637260Sorry for the delayed reply.
Ya, you are right. And you get to own a suitcase instead of owning a delivery/packaging box from the post office. So you are also saying that the postage is expensive?
I guess you have spare luggage weight for your flight back home such that you could purchase that suitcase?

Keripo (1 year ago) #2611299I bought the hard shell suitcases from Don Quiote (discount chain store in Japan) for 6k yen ~$60 USD) as paying for a second 50lb luggage bag is cheaper than any form of mail.

tanaka (1 year ago) #2611289Haha! I have been asking a silly question :P
The books are heavy, probably around 10kg? Since you put it inside the suitcase, I am sure you had to check it in during your flight. Were you using a tough suitcase? Reason I am asking is that suitcases are prone to damage during baggage loading. They don't handle the baggage as per postal services folks I guess. So if I am going to do that, I may need to pad the books to protect them...

tanaka (1 year ago) #2605751Ya, I am thinking of whether to do it this way. I am checking the cost of splitting them to see if it is worthwhile. Sometimes, consolidated/combined shipping (which in this case, the set is already combined) is cheaper, depending on the shipping method.
Since you bought it directly from the shop, was it heavy for you to transport it back home to USA?

Suitcase :)

Keripo (1 year ago) #2595046My set was wrapped together as a bundle, but you can send them an email and ask I guess (or put it in the order comments).

Keripo (1 year ago) #2591875If you aren't picky about condition, 16k yen is definitely a good price. Just keep in mind shipping costs as the books are quite heavy.
~Keripo


Ya, 16k is a good price compared to what you have paid earlier. However, based on the original retail price, the total is around 15,400yen. Since this is pre-owned, I am concerned about the condition. If I buy them as a set, I wonder if the online shop allows splitting of the books for cheaper shipping?

tanaka (1 year ago) #2591560Excellent stuff Keripo! Many many thanks!
Your explanation above plus the links really helped to clarify the situation I am having :)
You are indeed a connoisseur that I could refer to.
I will seek Soth's advice separately.
Btw, I found a 2nd hand used set of 5 books with a price of 16000y. Do you think this is a good price?
Thanks.
