    Shared Freight forwarding idea

    Hey Guys

    I was looking online at freight forwarders tonight cause I got pissed with international shipping restrictions and came across USA2ME. They look pretty solid and it got me thinking. Now I don't order a great deal of stuff from the states that I cant get direct but have recently found some cheap electronics on ebay that will only ship to the states. My question is is there any interest from anyone looking to combine costs of a freight forwarding account? Look at this link https://www.usa2me.com/signup/pgeRat...20--&Region=65 cause I'm thinking the platinum account would be pretty good with three people paying the monthly account fee (about $16 a month) and with a free 4 pound shipping for each month with $3.95 per additional pound and a 75 day free storage limit it would be pretty easy to get some stuff sent over once its all set up. I'm the sort of guy that doesn't mind waiting a little for items to arrive so combining for one shipment per month for the savings is worth the wait to me. Obviously if one person is getting something weighty or of large volume they would pay their extra during shipping but with a couple of good bastards it could work out well.

    What do you think any interest or is it not worth the bother?

    The NZ post one along with many others are run by Gateway Express out of Portland Oregon, and support via Singapore
    Run away... Far far away.
    There was a topic on this a month ago too.

    I'm on my ph at the moment and sucks to search
    Should be able to find it via the forum search easily enough.
    6-8 weeks ago tops I reacon

    Any company involved with eBay or Payapl is very anti gun ( same company now)
    1 min they will ship a scope for eg, next time they won't and you're stuck with it at there spot.
    There is always someone who will ship to NZ either from eBay or a shop.
    My strong advise is to give the forwarder a wide berth and find someone else.
    They are not cheap either when you work out what International flatrate boxes are worth, and forgetting the fact they ship via DHL you need to customs clear here, more money, gst and duty etc
