    Freight Forwarder

    Hey all,

    on my search for some rock sliders/steps I found the perfect ones on ExtremeTerrain. Unfortunately they don't ship internationally. But the service suggested to use a freight forwarder - I wouldn't have thought of that.
    Does anyone have experience on that topic and can name one with good rep which is reliable so I don't burn my money? I need to get stuff to Germany, just in case this matters.
    Thanks!

    I wouldn't buy from Extreme Terrain even if they did ship internationally. Not a fan of those guys. Hopefully you are able to find someone that can ship internationally though.

    Iíve owned their barricade sliders and wouldnít recommend those. Powder coating was not that great, it was damaged and their tube thickness is thinner than most others.

    What brand sliders are u looking to purchase?

    Thanks for that info, I appreciate that. I am looking at the Deegan 38s for JLUs. I like the Step with, pinch seam hiding and low profile look. Since my JL will never do serious rock crawling because we simply dont have that tough trails here, strength shouldnt be an issue. Any concerns or input on that, I'd be thankful to have serious pro/cons which I maybe havent had in mind yet

    Don't do it.

    There is no way I would ever order from ExtremTerain. Made that mistake once, got ripped off for $550. They are the worst company out there.

    That sounds pretty bad and these experiences seem to multiply

    I use Concordia International Forwarding. I do make use of our company address and details so youíd have to check if they would do private shipping if you donít have that facility.
    They are exceptionally efficient. My norm is any shipments get sent to their depot in NY and with an email on a Thursday afternoon to send them over Iím bolting the stuff on Monday morning. UK address.
    They also have other depots around the US, one definitely in Atlanta. This allows you to make use of the normal free shipping within the US

    Thank you! Thats some good info on the forwarder. I am glad someone else in europe is doing this which I know about, so it can actually work. I'll see what I will do on sliders
