I have always been buying my stuff (mainly bike stuff) using Borderlinx.

Haven try Comgateway, and going to try it to get my gfx.
I'd recommend you try comgateway. I started using them about 1 year ago, shipped more than 10 orders already (roughly 1 shipment monthly), and totally no problems so far. If you're a DBS cardholder, they also give u free express upgrade, VERY FAST SHIPPING!! I get my packages from the US in 3 days.

I have friends that have used vpost before, they said it's cheaper but more troublesome and also much much much slower. If you want to save money and don't mind waiting, maybe u can try vpost.

parameters, 5000 parcels per month. lol.

I use CGW. So far no complaints. paid 53USD for 7lbs. a bit ex but oh well, can't complain. DHL service. Super fast.

I was thinking of switching to MYUS, but not sure if its more expensive? :S
U paid USD53 for 7 pounds shipment?? Yesterday I paid USD51 for 6.5 KG (about 14 pounds) shipment!
I got 5% off for being a DBS cardholder, but still that doesn't explain why I paid so much less. Plus the $51 includes my repacking fee.

Maybe u should get a DBS card if ure gonna use comgateway regularly. Got 5% off and free express upgrade.

Hmm.. Funny. I got two shipments that arrived on the wed and thursday at CGW suite. The first shipment on wed i got 5% off. The 2nd shipment i got 10% off. Both package weight at 0.5kg. So in total one cost U$12+ another cost U$11+.

Wow lucky, I also want 10% off! haha :p
Uh, but why didn't u consolidate your packages? U could have sent both packages in 1 shipment, that'll be even cheaper. I always wait for a few packages to come then I send all at one time.

I was contemplating whether to wait for it to come then ship out, or ship out the first one first. Since the first one that arrived was my friend's package, i thought i would ship it out first and hopefully get it on monday morning and pass it to my friend before i fly off to penang in the afternoon.

another factor was prime because i was just 1 more package to prime

but looking at the tracking now i dont think i can get it on monday it haven arrived in HK compared my previous packages, which by the 3rd day afternoon reach HK alr.

I have used Comgateway many many times. Everytime before I choose the shipper, I will check between Comgateway and Bordelinx... and Borderlink always much expensive than comgateway.... shipment for clothing and sports supplements, comgateway darn cheap. Down with vpost! It's the worst. (All stated are my own personal experience)

Oh i understand. Hope u get your packages asap. From my experience, u should definitely receive the Wednesday shipment by Monday, just that u may not get it in the morning before u leave for Penang. Sometimes it arrives in the afternoon or even the evening.

Great, now ure a comgateway Prime member. U do save quite a bit as a Prime member.

pwned. bought a pair of winter boots which costs US$60, and shipped it to vPost. Shipping cost came up to S$100 (2.8kg actual weight --> 9.6 kg volumetric weight).
Didn't see any option for repacking but I've sent them an email. What are my chances for getting them to repack? The idea of paying $100 for shipping doesn't sound appealing at all..

Don't be too optimistic. From my experience, if you have to ask them to repack, it means repacking is not doable based on their conditions.

Your package with vpost will be automatically repacked if doable instead of you having to select the option or ask them for it, unlike CGW.

Oh no. What do you mean 'the item inside is wrong'? The US company sent the wrong merchandise to your US address?
