Doing my first Youshop now, and having two packages arrive at their centre at the same time. BUT, they don't offer consolidation of the packages so they will be sent as two different shipments instead of being merged into one.

I assume it would be cheaper to have it consolidated, at least that has been my experience in Norway.

So anyone know of anyone doing package forwarding except Youshop, and preferably someone that does package consolidation?

Yes, Shipito are good though worth checking the associated courier costs as it doesn't always work out cheaper than YouShop.

You get a $6/parcel discount if you have more than one parcel on Youshop.

Send private message don't just do consolidation but they will repack into smaller boxes (for a fee, of course).

They also have 25% off shipping costs at the moment so their discounted rate for DHL express ends up about 5% higher than the Youshop rate. This is, of course, before any consolidation or repacking.

They charge a setup fee (one off) but if you hunt around there is a discount code that makes this free.

Their website is a bit rough and broken in places but they are pretty quick to receive and resend stuff.

I will never use again. A 2.2lb parcel cost $76 NZD freight and took four weeks to arrive.

I use for consolidated items or Youshop for single items.

With Free Amazon's Global Shipping for $125 - it might work out cheaper for some items now
