 Has anyone else used to forward a purchase from a US store to New Zealand with good or bad results? Magu from here, mentioned he's waiting for a BuyUSA package. They have very good reviews on their site.... only very good reviews! 
Or to that matter any good forwarding Company from US to NZ. Details? 

I was about to use Viaddress - but started reading polarized reviews everywhere ie one star or 5 star nothing in between.  Plus almost every 5 star was by apparent English as a Second Language people !! looks suspicious.

I've used Shipito several times without incident. As long you get free shipping within the US itself so as not to pay twice for shipping its not too bad, definitely total non-item costs add up, but if there is no other way/easy way to get something then it can be good to have them as an option.

+1 for shipito.

I've used them a few times, no hassles, and I find their prices to be about the best (and I did a lot of research!)
