Reshipping site in US

Hi

amazon.com does not ship to Switzerland nor to Germany the things I want to order.

I need an address within USA with the service of grouping my orders and reshipping to Switzerland.

Can you recommend a safe reshipping site?

Will they ship to the UK? That might be an option for you as there are quite a few reshipping companies there.

Re: Reshipping site in US

Try the European-side Amazon branches too. I often find what I want on the co.uk or .de sites, and my login works the same on all of them. Failing that, if it's something inexpensive and small, I ship to a relative in the US who then ships to me.

I think I've seen posts about reshipping sites, but you have to keep the value of the goods + the cost of shipping under ~62 Francs or you get to pay Customs charges, and maybe even a fee to Customs for the privilege of them checking your parcel.

Re: Reshipping site in US

Do your homework for US sites. I used US Global Mail as a mail consolidation service while in CH (I recommend them), but a lot of vendors would not ship to them (including Amazon) for some reason.

Re: Reshipping site in US

Thank you all for your help!

The items are not available on European-side Amazon and I don't have a relative in the US

I found a lot of reshipping companies on google, but without feedbacks about them, so I'm not sure who is reliable and fast.

Re: Reshipping site in US

Could you please give a very rough idea what category of items you're looking to buy, e.g. clothing, pharma, etc? I'm beginning to wonder if there's another reason why they're not on any of the European sites.

Storage boxes. I need them in orange and green and I've found them on amazon.co.uk only in orange. But they also do not deliver to Switzerland.

And not to Germany either?

No, they don't deliver to Germany either. Neither from .com nor from co.uk.
It states:
Dispatched from and sold by
Amazon US

Honestly, that doesn't sound like something that would be worthwhile to ship even with a reshipper. Most storage boxes are rather large on purpose, which means shipping costs would be enormous simply due to size. Even the folding canvas ones can weigh quite a bit if you buy several.

Agree with Blueangel, if you can post a link maybe we can help you source closer alternatives. Or, if the boxes you want come from the UK then could you use one of the over-the-border mailbox places (Weil am Rhein?) and ship to Germany?

Re: Reshipping site in US

Thanks for you time!
