    Hello everyone and thank you for viewing this auction.

    I just want to let everyone know that worldwide shipping of this special lot is available.

    The following shipping estimate for the Michelin Man is as follows:

    UK - £100
    Europe - €200
    U.S.A. - $300

    The price may vary slightly (possibly less and possibly a little more). I am always keen to make sure items are very well packaged and as a result the shipping estimation may change slightly. I always use UPS and each item is fully insured against damage or loss. Furthermore, I do not charge for the actual packaging of the items as I have an abundance of packaging material in storage. The only cost would be for the actual courier itself.

    If anyone has any questions please just let me know. Due to my current working and personal commitments and the time zone difference, there may be a slight delay in my response. However, I will always reply to any message as soon as I can.

    Thank you once again to everyone for the interest you have shown and I wish you all the very best of success in the auction.

    Kind regards
