A lower, (much?) slower shipping option would be appreciated for additional orders.

Its a shame to pay away so much for quick shipping unless one really needs it.

Unfortunately, the carriers are making a fortune at the moment, using the veil of Covid 19 as a poor excuse. Modushop can only quote what the carriers are demanding at the moment. What is even more worrying is once Covid quietens down, do you honestly think the shippers will lower their rates - not bloody likely.

I confirm all the front panels are going to have blind holes in the rear part to mount the handles. If you plan to use them you simply have to "fully drill" them.


We have now reached the magical number and our engineer is already working on the CNC programs, thanks to everybody for making this happen


I have also made them unpurchasable for the time being so we know exactly how many we have to produce. Once we finish producing them I will set the available quantity to the ones we have produced but not sold so if there is still someone who wants one or two they can get them

Thanks for the update Gianluca, for those contemplating adding front handles at some stage, what size hole needs to be drilled, what size screw is required and do they come with the front panel handle kit?

The big milled handles have all the necessary screws to mount when you buy them. The ones included in the kit are round handles and require extra holes to be done to mount them

The rear panel is already predrilled to size for the handles on the rear panel.

Yes indeed - let me ask the question in a different way. In many countries there is a slow mail option (in the Ex British colonies, this is often called “surface mall”). Regardless of the overall level of freight rates, it appears that uniformly, faster service requires higher rates. And if slow delivery is acceptable then lower rates apply. Now for lightweight items, the difference is often not sufficient to make a difference. But when you’re shipping large items it can be.

The question I have is simply if it’s possible to make available a slower shipping option at lower cost for these heavy chassis ? I’ve paid for my chassis and default delivery already so this is perhaps more relevant for future purchases or for the benefit of others.

Yes I totally get what you mean. The slower, cheaper option is usually EMS. It can be used for any country we want but we try to avoid using it because it is unreliable (last december they were on strike for 10 days!), tracking website is very slow in updating and the website to create the airway bill is always a mess.

Before this group buy, we did not use it for specific countries (Canada and Australia) but since we had some people ask for a cheaper shipping option we have decided to add it for them

Thank you kindly.
At the moment the only shopping option I can see for Singapore is FedEx Economy.
