your attempts at sarcasm is laughable at best, and you have a problem with comprehension, don't display it off to the world, it's embarassing.

if you feel that you are overcharged after using the volumetric formula, then file a proper complaint to CGW. if not, quit whining about it like baby. nobody is sympathising with you.
yes king wacko ott. hail !

One thing I have always tried to practise in this forum is giving advices only to reasonable people. That's one thing perhaps you have to consider practising as well.

but come on, 1.5kg actual weight, for 8kg of volumetric weight.
Shoe I received last time came in its original retail box inside a bigger box. Yet the bigger box was only 14"x11"x6", only about 3kg volume wt. 8kg box would be about 18"x15"x9". The shoe should be inside it with a much smaller retail box, unless your merchant did not give you a retail box, which is quite unlikely. Your merchant is obviously sending out grossly oversized boxes. Which merchant is that? Should avoid ordering from them in future!

What did you purchase? That's a huge difference. If it can be repacked, yes, Vpost or CGW would have been a better choice.

I think maybe we should come up with a list of etailers and the corresponding box size shipped so that people won't choose those etailers that ship grossly large boxes for small items. Blinx does offer repacking, albeit at a fee I think. Just ordered 3 books from Amazon and paid 30 sgd for shipping after discount. My past purchases that includes shoes and bags, max volumetric weight was probably 2-3kg which amounted to max of 40sgd.

That's weird leh, I always see the option on their website when selecting my shipment. But I think some users have commented that it's not 100% guaranteed that they CAN repack. Also another tip to users who want to receive their shipments fast, so far based on my past 3-4 shipments. You confirm the shipments on Thursday, it'll reach by Monday noon so I would advise people to choose on Thursdays rathen than the start of the week as it's the shortest days taken to receive I think.

From Borderlinx? Sure?

I believe there's no repack option from Borderlinx at all unless they give a case-by-case exception for the customer (provided there's such a thing).

maybe your original packaging was damaged.
http://www.borderlinx.com/pages/faq/repackaging

your confirmation on Thu logic holds no water. just confirm as early as you can, and you will receive the package as early as possible. surely you are not saying that if one has confirmed a shipment today, will receive it earlier than if they have confirmed it yesterday, or the day before, or even on 14 Nov?
