I think you mean 74" Skeleton Horse. Try searching that but you may not find it at this time of year. It's possible on ebay but the price will likely be ridiculous.

Oh, OK. Didn't even know that was out there. Same situation though, probably tough to find right now.

Hello! I actually just posted one for sale, but local pickup only. This box is gigantic! And heavy-ish. Bigger even than the T-Rex or the Spider (or maybe similar cubic feet, but not as cubical as the spider or rectangular as the T-Rex). I could not imagine how much it would cost to ship to a neighboring state (the U.S is vast) let alone France.
Good luck!

Mike

Hello
With eBay
Before my purchase is lost during transport
There were some 45 $ for shipping and 30$ import charges
This will vary according to the sellers but that stay in the same price at a few dollars near
I just bought the giant gargantuan spider and I have it 17$ for shipping and 34$ import charges

If you are ever a seller for the zombie horse I am very interested
With EBay Shipments are managed with Pitney Bowes.

I hope my English is not too bad

Hi Heindrich! I believe you are sincerely just trying to buy these props, and I wish you luck. But I think I have to reply just in case there is anyone else reading who doesn't understand how expensive it is to ship stuff, and might be misled by your recent post.

I went to DHL online, entered the boxes wt and dimensions (64 lbs, 42in, 42in, 22in) and received a quote of $1,038.24 to ship to Paris. While I do not discount the possibility of obtaining cheaper shipping elsewhere, the figures you stated are mistaken. First-off, they probably only applied to shipping to the continental U.S. Second, shipping charges on E-Bay are just what the seller chooses to quote; the only amount that really matters is the total cost to the purchaser. It would cost me at least a couple hundred dollars to ship this a hundred miles (by ground) within the U.S. Third, it is possible that whoever posted those items for sale didn't actually own the props but intended to just turn around and take advantage of Home Depot's free shipping (within the U.S., probably lower 48 states) to later buy the prop and deliver (though that would only have been possible right around Halloween).

Gotta run, may post more later, just wanted to get this out. There is no way on earth that the cost of shipping this to France in the retail market would be less than a few hundred dollars.

hello mike.

Indeed I inquire by UPS and shipping costs were about 500 dollars.
But I maintain that I have already made purchases on Ebay and I pay very low shipping costs.
I bought in November the horse skeleton and all came back for less than 120 dollars including shipping.
I received the object.
I just took the gargantuan giant spider and I have it for around $ 160 including postage.
The object has just been shipped and should arrive by next week in France.
This is the advantage of Ebay because you can directly calculate the shipping costs for France on each item for sale.
I do not know how to calculate these shipping costs.I have more expensive import fees than shipping costs
Besides, I buy regularly on Ebay International because here in France we do not find much for Halloween and I have so far only one package loss (the famous zombie horse)
I'm waiting for only one thing that the zombie horse be put back on sale on Ebay to facilitate the sale.

Hello
I research Horse zombie
For a send in France
can you help me ?
Thanks you
Hi there! Unrelated to the shipping question but I felt like I should let you know the home depot zombie horse probably isn't worth it. I don't know if you read the reviews for it while it was on the website but it was not recieved well. Apparently it arrived with chopped paint, clunky joints, and was prone to falling over if I recall. You would probably be better off getting a skeleton horse and corpsing it yourself. It will also probably look that much better depending on what technique you use. However that much is up to you. At any rate good luck!
