Anyone have an estimate of the shipping cost for a flute (no case) or a low whistle from US to Finland?

Thanks and best wishes.

Steve

The US Postal Service web site has a page for calculating shipping cost. You can also check with UPS, Fedex and DHL but Post Office is usually cheapest. If the flute is African blackwood or anything in the rosewood (Dalbergia) family then you will need a CITES permit.

USPS Priority Mail International Medium Flat Rate box = $69 + insurance or extras.
USPS Priority Mail International (your own box) = approx. $49.15 (2 lbs.) to $52.30 (3 lbs.) + insurance or extras.

Assumes you can't fit into a small box due to length of largest section.

Thanks to all who responded. I think I've got it sorted now.

Best wishes.

And I'm guessing it wasn't cheap. Helps if things are light in weight or break down to under 12". Try shipping a 50" guitar box, vs one that's only 48".
