    So i play baseball, but since none of my friends like it, they won't practice with me .. So, i want to buy a pitching machine! Problem is, baseball is not played much over here and there is nowhere to buy pitching machines from ..

    I found one on the internet, it cost 110gbp but they wanted 40gbp tax and 40gbp shipping from the USA (My pound button doesn't work!)

    They are not necessarily big, and can be broken down .. is this company charging too much, if so, how much would you reckon shipping costs for something like a pitching machine?

    I don't think this is too much if you want tracking and insurance. I ship smaller items and Express Post to the UK starts at about

    $27.95

    You shouldn't pay tax since it's going out of the country.

    Yeah the 40gbp tax sounds like a ripoff. Any tax or duty fees will be owed in your country.

    I would check more into that if It was me.
