Considering Frank's level of expertise, the only real question is, when will
he have the time and how will you manage without your little green friend
till then? I can't think of any reason not to entrust your Newt to him for
some TLC and repair.

The shipping of just one Newton to Germany isn't all that bad once you get
over the shock; when I did it I had a complicated package, and even so, the
price was reasonable for what was being shipped.
