Ask Postbox Courier if you want to ship to USA. I don't know if they ship from SA to USA but worth a try. I imported a motorcycle helmet about a year ago and the box was fairly big. this is obviously bigger but can do no harm in asking. Shipping was around $150.
Postbox courier quote comes to R9400 for the parcel dimensions in the OP.
The R9700 was quoted by DHL and not Postbox Courier, which is a courier service between RSA, USA, UK, HK and Dubai. It is worth a try for the OP to contact Postbox Courier and ask then
