DHL rocks, but its really expensive. I have a corporate account with them because I deal with them in huge volumes for work. I had actually considering shipping at my own cost but when I saw the extra "emergency" charges, it just wasn't worth it.DHL seems to be the way to go. I have something coming from France, opted for DHL but it was like 20€ more than la poste
I just checked their website. Is yours "economy", if it is, you're fked thenApparently less than .274km/hr
Well, the last time i went to auspost, they gave me two options for sending economy parcel, roughly equal to US$20 and $30. The guy told me $30 is like a priority, will shipped whenever possible and the cheaper option will wait till they reach enough quota to ship.Auspost. Not sure which shipping he picked. I'm just the first U.S. participant.
I took the knife to the post office on 4 April. I sent it air mail, with tracking and signature required on arrival. Normally, it takes 5-7 days for something like that to make it to its destination in the US. This wasn't the cheapest option, just normal air mail. At the time, there was no indication that it would take so long
i see the post office stamped your blade. cool.I received my Tanker directly from Japan to France via DHL. Shipped on Monday, in my mail box on Friday in the middle of the hard lock down that we have in France. Note that I was charged a 10€ on the top of the custom fees for DHL work.
So true.Just won something on Wednesday from buyee. Paid DHL and got it today. I freakin’ love DHL. The flash of red and yellow that streaks away as a package is left at my doorstop gets me so happy and hype haha
Yes, but you're likely to be hit with taxes and custom fees using those carriers. Worth remembering if the shipment value exceeds $800I’ve ordered a handful of stuff from japan since the start of the pandemic. All vendors offered DHL for anywhere from $20-30. Which has been great. 2-3 days from Japan to California, vigorously tracked.
What was the customs value on the shipment? I had $250 of Jnats arrive from Japan via DHL with no additional fees charged on delivery. I don't think that will be true for the $3800 Ashi Honyaki I have sitting over there waiting for EMS to restart. Anything over $800 will incur charges to the best of my knowledge.is that normally due upon delivery? So far haven’t had to pay anything extra.
Depends on value. I had a $3200 espresso machine shipped from UK via DHL. The customs/brokerage fees were $175, so about 5% of declared value. And yes much higher going to Europe.I don't think States got hit with crazy customs, it is so different from EU and Canada.
