Hi,

im quite confused with the DBS Card promotion. Is it only applicable to Everyday cards or to all DBS cards? Besides, since it is only valid for first time customers, as long this is my first shipment with CGW,it will work right? No specific time frame?

Thanks in advance. I couldnt really find all the info online thats why.

Have anyone ship herman miller chair from US to shipping using singpost or CGW.

What is the shipping cost like?
Will buying from USA plus shipping cheaper then buying from Singapore dealer?

Singapore dealer quote very high price compare to US.

Easily in hundreds. The chair itself is already quite big and you can probably imagine the volumetric or actual weight.

Amazon's information is not accurate, refer to HM's website.

Aeron Chair - Office Chairs - Chairs - Herman Miller Official Store

Borderlinx's quote

Which imo won't be far from CGW.

I contemplated to order before, go order from the Mass order

Hello. I know that for vpost you can self declare the amounts of the stuff you bought. If I bought from shops like Ralph Lauren, karmaloop, can I under declare the values? Cos most of them will provide invoice?

where do u get that info from and why is amazon not correct? I dont see that shipping info on that page.
Amazon only do rough estimations.

It's never accurate and it's not properly updated.
Most of the time they only state actual dead weight which is not what forwarders use to calculate.

Forwarders use volumetric weight so whatever discrepancy Amazon makes don't bother cause the forwarder will simply measure and charge base on the dimensions and calculate the volumeric weight accurately.
Since that's where forwarders earn, they sure count correct or more.

This is why there's so many complains that forwarders are overcharging cause people believed in those wrong numbers Amazon provided.

The info i stated are raw data obtained from HM's official website, so how can that be wrong?
While Amazon only states 57LBS of shipping weight, the actual volumetric weight is 258LBS


You can measure the REAL volumetric weight from here with the dimensions
DHL | Volumetric Weight: Express | English

Or

Borderlinx: Calculate international shipping, tax & duties prices

I can't find on CGW but it should be not far from Borderlinx's calculation

Some of the vendors stick their invoice copies on the outside of the package, so it's very easy for anyone to check.

Even if it's inside the package, it's quite common for customs to open and check.

Also take note customs don't catch you immediately once found, they will record down and charge you all at once with summons.

That's what i know from another forumer who received a charge with details of all his imports for the entire year. His fine was 5 digits.

I send and receive parcels almost daily, so i know how it works pretty clearly.
