Well, I'll chip in $50 if that's enough!

Hmm, I've worked with UPS WorldShip before, and just guessing by the sheer volume and weight, it will probably cost much more than $250 for shipping. (Especially if they declare a value, which I think you have to for shipments valued over $200.) You've got at least a van-full of stuff there. :shock:

It might be cheaper for one of you guys to rent a U-Haul, drive down there, and pick everything up yourselves. :lol:

How much money for one PS2, or is it just a bundle?

I messaged the seller and he said the box of accessories is shipping with the auction. He also informed me that it will ship out Fed Ex Ground on a pallet that weighs about 700lbs. Not sure what that'd cost, but figured I'd pass along the info.
There is no black or white but rather a million shades of gray...

I'd be willing to throw in 50 for 1 Xbox, 1 Gamecube, and 3 Playstation SCPH-101.

Post in the modretro thread, everyone who wants to contribute and hasn't posted yet. We are about 250 dollars away from 650 + shipping for 250.

If you can guarantee me that I will have 2 working Xboxs, 1 working Slim PS2, and 1 working Gamecube, then I will throw in $80.

These consoles are all sold AS-IS, which when I see that, I think they probably don't work.

A 700 pound pallet?! :shock: Here's the estimated shipping cost I got from FedEx's website. It's from Boston MA to Beverly Hills (the first 2 ZIP codes that came to mind, thank you TV :lol:) , so it's the maximum shipping cost for a cross-country trip.

Assumptions:
- $500 declared value
- 36" x 36" x 45" skid dimensions (however it would almost definitely be far bigger.)
- 700 pound weight
- Cross-country trip (the seller doesn't say where they are)

Image

Yes, two thousand five hundred ninety-three dollars and sixty-eight cents for cross-country shipping. :shock:

Obviously if it's not going to be that far, then the shipping will be cheaper. However, you still have to factor in the declared value, dimensions, and sheer weight of the package. It's gonna be expensive.

Image VERY expensive. (Bonus points if you get the reference : P)
