Could I ask a favour from one of our US members?

I need a couple of small parts from a US website that won't ship to the UK, and they also won't ship anywhere unless the card billing and delivery addresses are the same. Unfortunately it's the only place in the world that has these items.

Is anyone able to grab them for me and forward them to another address in the USA for me to collect? I'll be over there in April/May, but the people I'm staying with are liveaboards so their card billing addys are at a PO box so don't match.

If anyone could help me out it'd be very much appreciated and I can paypal the money over before anything was ordered.

I should add there's absolutely nothing dodgy or illegal about it at all, in either country.It's just an incredibly awkward US supplier. The parts are so small they'll fit in an envelope.

I think I may have now managed to convince them to ship to the UK-will probably know more on Monday.

I have been known to help people

Sounds like the best thing is for them to ship direct, but a few crazy Californian's have stepped up, and offered to help!
