Consultations & Advice

Due to the Covid crisis, I am receiving and sending instruments internationally throughout Europe over the post. This is far cheaper than I imagined and the items can be insured up to €5500.  For example, at the moment, a fully insured packed sitar of 12kg, for example to Germany with track and trace is €50. I use PostNL. Maximum sizes are 175cm x 78cm x 58cm. Each country has it's own prices, rules and regulations so be sure to check out your options.
