Mail Forwarders for Non-International Shippers

Postby Mr.Deflok » Sun Feb 17, 2019 11:35 am

Hi team, I see this year will have a few exclusive items which won't see a release at my usual e-tailer go-tos and will be available only at sites which don't ship internationally.

Just wondering if anyone here uses a mail forwarder and which one you could recommend?

I use YouShop by New Zealand Post; though I would never use them for anything I wanted to keep sealed

Do they package stuff pretty bad?

They will open boxes to check contents and don't seem to have any regard for the depth they put the box cutter in (ie, I have some cut contents)

I only stay with them because they are significantly cheaper than the others, but it comes at a small cost

I resurrected my Youshop account not long ago to get a few things from a few US-only websites and all promptly cancelled and refunded me. so that has been disappointing.

are there any better alternatives than Youshop that might be more successful?

Did they cancel the orders because the orders were to the Youshop depot?

Yeah, they said they couldn't fill my order due to my address being a freight forward location.
