does it work? have you tried? can they do sea shipping?

i wanted to try, then someone told me "even the boss of Aramex doesn't use Aramex" :/

i desperately want this table from turkey..
Obviously Aramex cannot be compared to UPS or DHL, but they are pretty good in Middle East and Asia.

I live in Dubai now and use Shop And Ship service quite regularly. Except for Christmas delays, I didn't have any problems with them. One thing that makes them better over competitors is that they charge on actual weight of the shipment, instead of volumetric. This is super convenient. They don't however consolidate the shipments. I am not really sure how well will they work when ordering something to Singapore but they are worth a try in my opinion if the rates per 0.5kg are not outrageous. They have prices listed on their website.

Review on 65dg (ship4me from US):
Delivery - Fast. Told about 5 days (including weekends) to reach me.
Packaging - Neatly wrapped (not sure if it was merchant packaging)
Volumetric measurement - Close. Personally measured 13.8kg volumetric weight. Measured was 14.1kg.
Price - Cheap if you dont buy the insurance / avoid gst (<$400). Insurance costs 3% of the total amount. My shipping was about 120 while gst + insurance cost abt $60.
Customer service - Decent. My first email took them over 5 days (probably due to cny) to respond. Subsequent emails took about 1 day.
Overall - Recommended

tired 65dg 1st time. everything smooth and good
they offering foc repacking so the volume weight went down quite abit after repack. shipped 1.5kg items from USA for sgd$11.97
way cheaper than cgw and vpost. their base charge with 0.5kg already cost more than that.
only issue with 65dg was their insurance cost abit expensive at 3%. cwg was 0.65%, vpost insurance very expensive.

will use 65dg in future due to the lower cost

I always ship Comgateway, competitive rates and fast. Cusotmer service is also excellent.

They often have promotions so I usually take advantage and buy in bulk. Usually shop from USA and most companies offer free ground shipping so I just give them my CGW address, they repack for me and ship out.

would like to get a pair of running shoes from Nike store US.

which forwarder is recommended?
and roughly how much is it (for those who had shipped before) ?

TIA.
Nike do not ship to freight forwarder address.

You brought mine using gshipexpress shop4me services.
Mine shoe was charged 2.5kg. Overall experience not bad.

First introduced to gshipexpress by a few mentions here. would like to share my experience:

Earlier this year (Jan), I submitted a shopforme request through gshipexpress to buy something from Target and paid through Paypal, a day later, I noticed the item was out of stocks so I wrote a message to cancel the buyforme request.

I received an email with their reply "We will be proceeding to cancel your Shop4Me order. Please note that the no refund will be made back to your card." My eyes widened when I read no refund to my credit card and quickly emailed back to request for the refund to be made to my card, from then my emails were ignored. Multiple emails were sent to reach out to them, but ALL ignored. Yes emails from Jan to now.

Needless to say, raised a dispute with Paypal and vow never to use them again.

gshipexpress problem

Anyone having problem with GShipExpress? I have a package delivered to UK address on Monday 29Feb, with confirmed delivery. Multiple chaser emails sent with no reply. Calling to the UK number always ended with busy tone. This is getting a little frustrating.

self collected my 2nd order from 65dg
so far ok, shipped over a pair of shoe for sg$20
if vpost cwg will cost about sg$30+~40
stil have a 3rd orders in US.
will stick to 65dg in future.
other than the cheaper rate, their self collection can be arragne was much easier. dont need to wait for delivery that no know will turn up at what time or worry parcel deliver to wrong address.
