MiloMan what's your opinion.i prepared a shopping cart for 15000$.The prices include VAT? and how much you think the shipping will cost me?

I was very happy with the equipment I received from them, and I plan on making several more purchases from them in the future.

what do you think about this power rack

I thought you weren't going to order from the US, due to freight costs?
All that aside, that is no doubt a fine power rack. I've been quite pleased with NYBB. As far as shipping charges, just e-mail them and ask them. 3" square 11ga tubing is mighty strong, but pretty heavy (not heavy for a big freighter vessel, though). If you ship from the USA to where you are, there won't be any VAT.

thanx my friend.i may change my mind because prices in france are pretty high.the same equipments cost 30 % more than US.
that means even if the US freight cost is highert the total charge will be less.One more thing is that i cntacted the french seller and he told me that he don't have all the eqipments and he must order them and that nedds 3 months
i hope that the stuff from New york barbells are good.when seeing the weight it seems that they are solid but i have a little doubt about it.they have a very high number of equipments at good prices.
U think it's better from Body-Soolid?
As for free weight i'll buy them from ivanko.A set of 5-150 and plates.

BodySolid is good stuff too, but usually slightly overpriced for what you get, in my opinion. Once you start paying for the Euro nanny state costs (those short workweeks, one month of annual paid vacation, socialized health care, etc etc etc aren't free) it gets even worse. Another place to consider for very nice equipment is the light/medium commercial quality stuff here:
I've bought a few things from Iron Company, and had very good service (about the same service as NYBB).

For cheaper BS equipment (cheaper than in Europe that is), look here:

Personally I think Body Solid is competitively priced given the competition. Tuff Stuff, Parabody and Hoist are all more expensive(especially Hoist) and offer similiar quality.
An example would be the BS Series 7 smith machine that Delvechio was pricing out. It is practically identical to the Parabody model in appearance, dimensions and build quality(welds, steel guage and tubing size). However, the Parabody costs alot more.......
