Assassin Snails wanted

Hi I have a 55 gal Planted that has a snail problem I have it under control by plucking them out of the tank but would like a couple of assassins in there so that I can keep the population under control

anyone out there have any Assassin snails that they are willing to part with I am willing to pay for them but I don't really want to buy the $20 for 10 I see online I just want 3-4 but the shipping is so expensive

Thanks in advance

Thanks
I'll swing by there tomorrow and ask
I Think I have the snail problem under control right now but I wouldn't mind putting some in my 55 just to be on the safe side. I go away a lot and the wife refuses to put her hands in my tank to scoop them out
