Has anyone tried Vshop4u?

I'm tryin to ship 3 stethoscopes from a USA website, and I've never tried any parcel forwarding services before, but I'm rly quite hesitant to use Vpost or any of the other services after reading all these nightmare reviews...

Has anyone tried vshop4u before? It's run by vpost, where they'll help me buy the item from the website I want and handle everything. They claim that they'll give me an "all-inclusive, guaranteed price quote" (which im assuming includes delivery to singapore), but how can they give me a quote if they don't even know how heavy or large my parcel is? What if they rip me off and demand further payment for delivery after I pay for my stethoscopes (via vshop4u)?

Edit: I looked at some other threads and saw that ppl recommended gshipexpress cos it's more reliable, have any of you tried it before?

Shipping from jackspade

Hi,

I am trying to acquire some jackspade item from US and heard from some friends that jackspade does not allow shipping to a proxy address. May I know if these is any forwarder that can do the shipping from us to sg for Jackspade ?

Process of order - shipment - receiving

Hi,

sorry if this sound too noob. Fact is, ive never sent my online orders through other forwarding companies, but as ill have to "purchase" a couple of ebay items worth USD 1500 each, i was hoping to know what to do to reduce the entire cost involved.

So, are the following the correct steps:-

1) Register to have a US address with one of the forwarding companies (ezbuy, cGW, Borderlinx, vPost, etc),

2) Bid/buy from ebay seller and ask him/her to deliver to the US address from above.

3) Do i need to do anything from here? or will the forwarding companies contact me to say the items are in their warehouse and that i should pay? how to reduce the bulk of the original box but still have bubble wrapping to ensure that anything sensitive will not be damaged?


appreciate your time to provide some guidance.


cheers!

Yes, they will inform you when the item arrived at their warehouse.how to reduce the bulk of the original box but still have bubble wrapping to ensure that anything sensitive will not be damaged? It depends on whether the forwarder provides re-packing service.


appreciate your time to provide some guidance.


cheers!
