International Package Forwarding

Post by Aqua_Flash » Sun Jan 20, 2008 11:14 pm

For all international members, read this.

As you may know, stuff like PVC and good soakers are hard to get internationally. Places from the US while offering to ship internationally on things either charge unusually high prices at times, or refuse to ship internationally at all. Sellers not shipping internationally on great soakers on eBay occurs a lot of the time.

A while ago somebody found a service agent that gives you your own US address which will then forward packages to you. It was a really great service, sadly, about a year or a bit more ago now, that place shut down and said they will no longer be operating. However, since I was a member, they redirected me to another place.

The international shipping prices are fair and while you have to pay to join for membership, at least you still get what you want. I plan to register there in the next few days hopefully. Now I can get my PVC endcaps, PETG tubing and even good Super Soakers from sellers who won't ship to where I am if I'm interested.

I should have mentioned this earlier, however now I have, if you are able to, I suggest all international members or future international members who have the same problem as me look into this. Believe me, it is very useful!

Nice link! I've made it a sticky so our members from outside North America will see it in the future.

ben@sscentral.org / Please read this before emailing or PMing me

Do not ask me water gun questions by email or PM. Please post the question at the forum. Private questions and suggestions are welcome by PM and email. Also, I do not sell or buy water guns online.

Wow, that's a brilliant idea. I wonder why few others ever thought of it. Thanks for the tip! :cool:

And no matter what, it ought to be perfectly legal - since the service providers are kinda buying the products themselves and then giving them away.

Good find! I'm sure some of our international members will use it.

How can one be assured that they will not just claim the product as their own after all it is addressed to them

If they did that then they may not even be around now. This service has been around since 1997 so it is pretty repuatable. I was recommended to come here by the previous package forwarding service that I had who did pretty much the same thing as these do and I had no issues with them claiming it as their own.
