That is a bit overpriced. THe going rate is around $2000 which in my opinion is a steal in todays market. So see, not everything is going up in price. Some good things remain steady.

Yet, dealing with large expensive items of a thousand to tens of thousands of dollars, equipment needing up close inspections is essential, and shipping costs may not be much of the formula.
For a buy, up close and personal understandings, will be the final means.
Fly a long ways, inspect/buy/exchange monies, then rent a vehicle or pack and provide the safe transport for securing that sought after purchase.
When the price is high, shipping costs are not really the issue.
My two cents,
Jim
