I wish to buy a product from a retail website in the states that will only ship to USA/Canada. Does anybody have any ideas on the best way to get this to New Zealand? (To any city in NZ)

Alternatively, is anybody coming through to NZ that I could have the item shipped to in the states to bring back (or pick up from South El Monte, California), or that I could ship it domestically in the states, then have it sent to me here in NZ.

The item weighs about 7 kilos and is about the size of a laptop case. It is a perfectly legitimate low value retail item, of a particular variety not available in NZ. Full details or item and store to anyone who might be able to help me.

And no, its not drugs or 'substances' !!!

Who is the retailer? Is it something you could source from international-orders.com at all?

This site has changed a lot since I used it once several years ago and can work out quite expensive once freight is factored in but is a convenient way of getting goods from online retailers you wouldn't otherwise be able to buy.

There was some guy on GPForums who'd offered to help ship things from US for a flat fee of NZ$10. See: http://www.gpforums.co.nz/thread/281648/?s=

Does anyone know how well this works? Just had a look at the link and while its still relatively expensive (but apparently the shipping costs listed are as per NZ Post) the service itself looks really interesting.

Just wondering if anyone has actually given it a go whether it worked as expected?

Good luck Smile
