Container from UK

Anyone planning to have a container shipped from UK in the next few months to an Eastern port that I could have an Ashcroft ZF tag along? Thinking about this option for my tranny replace, but they don't ship outside of UK. PM me to discuss...

Thanks in advance!

Matt

Exactly! With all the trucks that come over I figured there may be room in a container.

I don't think many are shipping truck via container as the cost is very high. You would need to find someone shipping a parts container.

Carefully consider just letting Ashcroft ship direct though... In my experience the container shipping cost ends up being higher than planned and takes longer than planned.

There are already so many good ZF's here why would someone order one from Ashcroft?
I love Ashcroft and have bought great(small) stuff from them but when I can pick up a ZF in Roanoke....why would you get one from the UK?
Is it something special like a diesel ZF?

Figured that a rebuilt one from them would be a good idea vs a used, non rebuilt one here? I don't want to be stuck replacing a used one down the road doing the same thing.

To get anyone here to just rebuild a ZF is more expensive than buying one from Ashcroft and having it shipped here. Maybe I am misguided? This is for my RRC, no diesel. I have been quoted $3.5k to 5k for rebuild of my own ZF in VA area.

You can get rebuilt ZF's here easily. http://www.erikssonindustries.com/ is just one of many ZF approved rebuilders.

However if you want a ZF for a Tdi or powerstroke, then you're best off going with Ashcrofts who have the parts easily available to set up a box for the different power and torque of a Tdi.

My experiences: bought an ashcroft for a rrc with all 4HP24 internals. Took ashcroft 3 days to build and ship, in the states in a few days, and over a month to get through customs at my local airport, at an additional $450. Was described as "power transmission multiplication unit", or some such nonsense.

Have bought lots of rebuilt ZF's from Roverland Parts, with only 1 issue on 1 unit after 30k miles/ 4 years.

Thanks for the heads up on that Trevor. I just saw Roverland Parts had a rebuilt one for $1,395, lowest price I've found yet! Thanks for the lead.
