We will help to ship to you - sorry , I can't quote it through eBay, but we'll work together to find the most efficient method for you. We have local resources for blanket-wrap shipping inside the US, crate-building for international shipping. (Please remember that the shipping weight will likely almost double if a crate is required, in addition to the cost of the crate.) Local pickup is fine.

I'll be happy to provide more photos as you need 'em.
