Bah. 10 packages in a month and the 7th is now held by customs. Shlep.

Hoping the air tags make it through ok. A bladdy DAC is the one that is being held. Probably because it weighs more than they would expect for the price.

How's this for a bad start to the year? January 2021 - PoE switch imported from the US, dropped on the left front corner. Still had the plastic pieces and dislodged "system" LED in the box from where they splintered off. Today - 2x Dell 22" monitors, one of which cracked in shipping (box looks like it was dropped on its right side).

Aramex flat out refused to compensate me for the damaged switch - they claim it should have had a Fragile sticker on the box. We'll see what they say about the monitor.

With duties and Vat you might end up paying more for the Airtags than the local price

Nah, will be maybe R50 less depending on the rate they use I suppose. But if it comes through quick it’s not the end of the world

I tried NYBox, parcels seem to ship faster through MyUS for me for some reason.
Slight premium over AGS but less stress. Even when using Aramex using those options

Does myus have tax free in Delaware or close by NY? I guess also have free consolidation with premuom.membership. nybox told me aramex only fetch parcels end of the week from them

Tax Free in Sarasota, FL.
Use FedEx then, usually 5-10$ more than Aramex

Has anyone on this thread actually been paid out by Aramex insurance? As far as I can tell it's a scam.

If I had more time on my hands I would take them to the short-term insurance ombud.

I think most people here are moving to MyUS because of Aramex's terrible service.

The good news is that they sent me a blank AOL (acceptance of loss?) form for the monitor. The bad news - they are only going to reimburse me for the cost of the monitor, not the shipping (even though that's the part I actually have a problem with, since they didn't provide the quality of service I expected), and they want the damaged monitor back... not to ship it back to the seller, but to keep it for themselves.

Hi, I’ve recently purchased a replica dagger. AGS though it telling me it’s an “unacceptable item”. Is there any way around this?

Guys, question related Aramex: did anybody tried to register Aramex' Hong Kong address at EBay?? It looks like: "Aramex HK LTD – SNS, 1/F, Mapletree Logistics Hub Tsing Yi, 30 Tsing Yi Road" (at address line) But stupid EBay says address is invalid!! Hell, what is invalid in a simplistic street??

Think somebody mentioned in this thread how they input their Hong Kong address.

Search "Hong kong" in this thread, maybe it will help.
