LSWater: Hey guys,
I was directed here after making a post requesting some advice on purchasing a Nexus 5 through the Aus Playstore.
Essentially I want to purchase the phone through the Aus Playstore as you probably all know it is a lot cheaper through there, but the shipping situation is where I'm after some advice.
I plan on having the phone sent to a friend in Aus who will then send it to me in Auckland, New Zealand. I understand Auspost won't send anything overseas with lithium. But there are other companies that do, PackAndSend for example quoted me $98.00 haha.
So has anyone bought their phone through the Aus Playstore and had it send over somehow? How did it go? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Yes I am just looking to save a couple hundred bucks, and the novelty of purchasing from the actual Google Playstore kind of appeals to me (silly I know since I'm better off with the CG Act. behind me purchasing from NZ)
Thanks a lot,
Hm.. firstly, I would double check with Pack&Send.
I called them about a month ago about shipping nexus 5, and they said that unless you can take out the battery, they won't ship it. They recommended contacting DHL.
For me, I decided shipping cost + custom fee wasn't just worth it getting it from Australia. Also, as mentioned by another user here, if your phone arrives DOA, it could be a huge pain.
