Shipping from the US was created by albertw

Hi,

Yep this old nugget again!

Specifically though I'm wondering if any of you have used shipito.com or reship.com or similar services and what your experience has been?

Edit: I should explain that what these companies basically provide is an address that you can use to purchase goods and have them delivered to IN the USA. They will then send you package on to you by your choice of courier.

Cheers,
~Al

Clever service actually, gets over the whole 'won't ship outside of NorAmerica' hurdle.

I use a service called Aunty Edel.com ;)

Bought me some eyepieces last year and even after paying aunty Edel a commission for her trouble I saved over 2000 euro :) on European prices. Stick that up your CONUS HayNeedle.com :D

...but yeah, if one didn't have an Aunty Edel.com equivelent then the likes of shipto or reship.com would come in handy :D

Haven't used them, but there's also this parcel motel crowd... might be worth trying to compare...

Parcel Motel are really only of use for the UK. It's a great service for buying goods form the UK who won't deliver internationally, or where you can get free UK shipping but extortionate rates to Ireland. I've used them a couple of times and they are brilliant.

Hopefully, in a few years, we may have a EU/US free trade agreement.
