Can you give an example or two of what their courier fees were to bring something in from the US?Just popping in to show some love for postbox-courier.
I see your MyUS and Scotts posts and I'm happy for y'all, but I won't be changing forwarding company anytime soon.
Yup.Can you give an example or two of what their courier fees were to bring something in from the US?
I've done this twice.

Right at the bottom on the Amazon page they list dimensions and weight under "Product Information". That is good enough for the couriers to give you a quote.I tried to get a quote on pricing from postbox-courier but like any other regular courier, they want dimensions and weight of the parcel. How the heck must I get that for anything you buy online? Its not as if Amazon list package dimensions and weight with anything they sell...is one just supposed to bite the bullet and hope the courier fee is not more than the item you are buying?
