Depends on your table and how well its adjusted! Have had a number of these tables and they have been accurate within my ability to test.Better look for the old analog one (2037 table), with dividing plates instead of the electronic readout.
2038 table with electronic encoder was big disappointment for me, totally inaccurate readout.
You cannot compare this LCL with a shipment from Germany to Switserland++ on Kuehne-Nagel. A few years ago I shipped an 1800kg grinder from Switzerland to Germany with them. Fast, inexpensive, and competent. Photos of the delivery are here:
Leave the tailstock alone. You can't compare the potential wear on the workhead and tailstock. The tailstock is moved on virtually every setup, the workhead, rarely. as long as you can adjust the taper out of the part , you're golden. It will adjust wonderfully.

Yes I know a full container is cheap in comparison to a LCLI did Google the question of why LCL shipping is so expensive between Europe and USA. The overwhelming reason cited is still the pandemic, also the long term supply chain ripples caused by the Suez canal blockage for a week in March 2021 by Ever Given. However, I also searched for the current cost to ship a full 20’ container from Europe to US, and it was actually less than what Peter quoted for the Deckel table, although there might be a lot of hidden fees not quoted for the container and for pickup and delivery.
Problem is that the seller does not want to export it it seems Or crating it So another transport compagnie is not going to help It involves another party in Europe to purchase the table and pay for it Have it transported to his location Put it in a certified crate and then ship it to the buyerCall DHL and see what they would want. A couple of times I have been pleasantly surprised, other times not, but it’s only a phone call.
