The $250 is for postage ONLY!! The total order would have been over $400!.
Hi I'm Canadian but I live in Germany. I've done a lot of shipping from home to here (but no jeep parts yet...). Anyways, try getting it shipped via "ground" mail. Takes about 6 weeks but its a lot cheaper.
Also, you may be able to find an overseas moving company that can send the stuff if you have an understanding retailer. I moved everything in my house for around 1000 euros, and that included emptying my storage space, putting everything on a boat and getting it to the middle of germany... so it can be really cheap if you manage it.
I hear U Popol..got the same problem. If the size/weight is a bit abnormal for the couriers they make U bleed...
But there is a solution..i guess it's not a quick way, but for sure a very safe and simple one.
If you know what you want, then simply make contact with the manufacturers..and ask them for adresses of official dealers in your neighbourhood. Or ask them for more info 'bout dealers who ship within Europe...
What kind of parts do you need anyway? Perhaps there are some links 'laying around here' you might need?
Problem is, Spain for the latter part of the twentieth century was ruled by Franco, as such it was a Dictatorship and for more than 30 years, up until the late seventies early eighties there were only 3 or 4 models of car available, thats not jeep models, thats models out of all the manufacturers..
The Jeep CJ7 was never sold officially in Spain, in fact the TJ only became released here three quarters through its life cycle.
As such, the official dealers, do not carry any spares or parts for older Jeeps, they cannot order parts from the states, even though it shows up on their catalogues, and the official jeep garages are not the place to go if you own anything other than a Cherokee, as they have no experience whatsoever.
Hence the reason i was looking on the internet.
Good idea though, normally you would be right, however Spain is kinda a bermuda triangle when it comes to anything out of the ordinary...

well, maybe a few more now ;)
Don't know if you made it through the language-jungle yet...but here are some things if you want:
From what I understand the Austrian shop does deliver outside Austria. But they only mention germany and Switserland... You could e-mail them.
The one in Holland: http://www.jeepparts.nl/. Very reliable, but 'cause of the distance perhaps even more expensive then the ones u found. This shop is also in Holland. They have a huge storage...got everything in stock. 'Even' for a CJ. (you know what I mean)
You could send them an e-mail for info. You never know...
ok then..here we go, the German connection.
(must be difficult, but there is a lot!)
