Parcel forwarders can be useful for international customers trying to shop from the U.S. However, it’s worth keeping in mind the following when using a parcel forwarding service:
- An increasing number of U.S. stores no longer ship to parcel forwarding addresses due to reliability reasons
- A parcel forwarding service cannot help you purchase from U.S. stores that require a U.S. credit card or U.S. billing address
- Parcel forwarders are unable to assist with returns, exchanges and warranty claims
- Using a parcel forwarder does not take the work out of the shopping process (i.e. you will need to research where to buy your item from, place the order with the U.S. store, deal with any store issues that arise and complete customs documentation once the product arrives at the parcel forwarding address)
There can be a surprising amount of work involved when using a parcel forwarder. On the other hand, Big Apple Buddy takes all the work out of the process for you by delivering a convenient and hassle-free service. Once you pay for your order, we take care of the rest. All you need to do is sit back and wait for the product to arrive at your doorstep, which can take place in as little as 2-4 business days.
