Title: replacement trays
Post by: m-m on July 30, 2008, 01:32:45 PM
Does anyone know where to get replacement trays for ferret nation cage?  I found a store in the states that will ship here but will cost about $130 US for 2 trays and shipping and duty.  Any suggestions?

How much would it cost to ship them to the states? I'm guessing it's probably the size that's killing you on shipping, since they're so light...

Anyway, you could ship it to the UPS store in Ogdensburg, NY and drive about an hour each way, which might be worth it if you buy a tank of gas down there too. Customs will usually just send you through without charging you if the value of what you've bought isn't very much. See http://www.theupsstore.com/locations/locdet.asp?strCenterNum=MBE2946 for the address you would have to have it sent to.

OR... I am driving down to visit my family in Wisconsin in a couple of weeks, and if you could wait until early September for the trays, you could have them sent there and I could bring them back. With everything else we'll be bringing back in the back of the station wagon, a couple of trays is nothing! Send me a private message if you're interested.

Have you tried contacting Midwest directly to see how much they charge?  Their website is at http://www.midwesthomes4pets.com/

Thank you all for your help but I found a tin smith in Ottawa that made me some custom trays.  They help keep my guys cool and are easy to clean - a little on the loud side tho ;)
