    Freight Forwarding from US (and save a few $$).

    May be of some use?
    Have a look at Bongo

    https://bongous.com/

    No monthly fees, etc.
    One supplier I looked at reckoned 82% saving on International shipping if using Bongo instead of just having items shipped directly to home in NZ.

    I had a play and it was a bit cheaper. I could save about US$12 on a shipment.

    If you can convince the sender that you dont need the package sent by the fastest method you can save a considerable amount of postage . Yanks seem to have the idea that you want stuff as fast as possible, and to hell with the cost....

    You're right there muzza.
    One US company has a fixed rate of US$48 (this is for a light parcel containing a few artists brushes I wanted).
    The brushes were way cheaper than NZ prices but 'oh boy' the shipping made up the difference!

    Nz post has a system set up too. You get your stuff sent to an address in Oregon and it then gets forwarded to you. I signed up the other day and have a DVD coming as a test run. If it works ok I'll report back.

    All done through the same provider - Gateway Express
    Support out of Singapore sucks balls

    USPS is far cheaper for 99% of stuff esp flatrate boxes

    Thanks ishoot10s.
    I'm just looking for the best deal to bring in some artist brushes (for me).
    Probably only 6 to 10 brushes, so not a heavy or large parcel.
    I'll try the other sites mentioned to see what the best deal is.
    Regards,
    Kelvin.

    DVD arrived today at a cost of 17 nzd. Took about a week. Litzs outfit wanted about 40 USD to send it down.

    How about shipping Boyds stuff ? im wanting a couple of gunstocks and no reshipping agents seem to want to deal with them.
    Thinking of going with ordering via a Canadian reshippig company as you can order up to $500 worth of gunstocks from Canada and they also ship to nz.
