Looking at options for forward shipping from USA, wondering what your experiences are.

I looked at youpost but seems like it's not viable for smaller packages as minimum postage is $12.5/$9, anyone used anything else particularly for small packages?

I've used YouShop a number of times with no problems. They now offer consolidation of multiple packages into one delivery.

Cheers,
Joseph

I use Shipito occasionally, but mostly Youshop. No problems with either (other than Shipito getting confused with an "&" in my password).

Youshop is the cheapest reputable service I've found - it's not an express service. Shipitto is a bit better but more expensive. If youshop is too expensive then buy whatever you want from someone in Asia, their shipping prices are insanely cheap, often free / included.

I just got a battery cordless drill deemed prohibited by Youshop. Brand new in retail box.  Their prohibited items web page has changed and it looks like sending anything with a battery is now prohibited.  

 

Does anyone know of another forward shipper, that is not anal about batteries, I can send my parcel to, to get sent to NZ?
