    Definitely not UPS or USPS - UPS will break it, they aren't kind to parcels and USPS will charge a fortune. I would suggest a local shipping company in the location of the printer - it will need to be shipped freight.

    thank you, i already asked a freight company for sea shipping, wich imports US cars to germany...

    they said they can also add the printer its no problem, but the suff needs to be shipped to them too...

    so my only problem is finding a freight shipping company in the sellers area since he said i should take care of all shipping! :D

    or should i look straight away for a freight shippping company in the usa wich can ship to germany?

    Check with DHL. I think they can do a good job shipping internationally

    Don’t forget you will have to pay import duty on the printer on arrival at customs so make sure you get all the correct forms filled in pre-delivery
