    Wheelchair shipping cost and time

    Does anyone know what costs are involved when shipping a chair or where I can go look (link)? I live in South Africa. I know Tilite builds their chairs within ten days, but how long does shipping usually take? weeks, months?
    Uphills are overated

    It will depend on who you order from, maybe Tilite do build a chair in 10 days but then they must ship it to the reseller (as Ti don't sell direct) which can added a few more days.

    Bike-on charge $410 and for delivery whilst from Sportaid it's closer to $350 however, Bike-on are generally cheaper so it's wise to get a few quotes first. Delivery via UPS, DHL etc will take about a week or next day if you want to pay for the service. Once it arrives in SA it will then need to be cleared by customs.

    With regards to import costs you'll need to speak to SARS, maybe this doc will help: http://www.sars.gov.za/Tools/Documen...sp?FileID=8838
