Thanks for the feedback, we'll definitely consider models with additional venting. What kind of venting would you like to see (front to back, left to right, how many rows?) and what are you planning on using them for?
Glad to see you are on top of things!

I think a few more rows top/bottom (similar to the full-width designs) would be great. Side venting might not be an option with the "quasi" sink feature.

I have a balanced AMB B22 and TP Buffalo/Legato ready to case up.

Brokerage fees, the bane of our existence! Our fulfillment center can indeed ship with USPS Priority and Express Mail International (manually), but the option to do so will not show up because it's more expensive than UPS. We've spent a fair bit of time tweaking the system to show all relevant options, but we are always happy to look into making sure that the best shipping options are available for your country. Just let us know if you think we could be doing better. I will see what can be done for Canada to get USPS Priority to show up for these large chassis.

If you would like to order with USPS just contact the helpdesk with what you would like to order and we can manually give you a quote and invoice you with PayPal. Not ideal, but it can be done for now and we are happy to help.

USPS Priority Mail International does come with tracking for large boxes (but not Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelopes or Priority Mail International Small Flat Rate Priced Boxes), so we're all good.

For reference, here are some sample charges, for the standard chassis which contain more steel and therefore the heaviest:

5U Standard Chassis - 26.0” x 20.0” x 4.0” LWH, 31.2 LBS
Vancouver - UPS $48.65, USPS Priority Mail International $116.87
Toronto - UPS $56.54, USPS Priority Mail International: $116.87

4U Standard Chassis - 26.0” x 20.0” x 4.0” LWH, 23.6 LBS
Vancouver - UPS: $43.58, USPS Priority Mail International: $94.43
Totronto UPS: $47.20, USPS Priority Mail International: $94.43

Thanks Jason, USPS Priority Mail International is not cheap either but it will be cheaper at the end than UPS.

Hi Ravi. To get the cheapest shipping quote, add whatever items you like to your cart and then using the shipping estimator (see image). It will give you the cheapest standard and premium/express postage options. If you would like a quote from a specific carrier (which will always be more expensive, as our shipping estimator will always show you the cheapest options), just let us know.

The issue of which service will give you the least customs headaches is another matter and comes down to personal taste and collective experience. If people would like to share their experiences (such as Pete, above, commenting that UPS will charge a formula of x% and y$ fixed fee on top of standard customs), you're welcome to make those comments in this thread or the general store thread. Please note that as we use a fulfillment service we can't adjust the values of the items on the commercial invoice, and they are used for the insurance as well.

You'll need to ask someone smarter than me

The system has now been updated. It will now always show an option from USPS for international orders! It will always try for USPS First Class International, but if that isn't available due to the value, size or weight, it will then be forced to show USPS Priority International or USPS Express International options, which is just about perfect as far as a range of speed and prices go.

You're right - these are very nice little cases! I will find a way to add ventillation if required.

Ordered three on 10/19 and received them today 10/24. Great quality and packaging.

One small suggestion for the store....list the exterior and all interior dimensions.

For the European diyers out there, I was given a quote of 401,27€ for the big deluxe 5u case with heatsinks. This is with vat and shipping to Portugal, shipping should be around the same within the EU.

401€ is about $510
That is more expensive than the $499 from the Forum after shipping across the pond !
