Top 10 Best US Package & Letter Forwarding Companies With Pros & Cons


Resize Text:

Do you ever wanted to buy from online US store or you recently tried to buy from US store and came to know that they won’t ship to your country! – Don’t Worry. There are many companies in the market who will buy and ship for you, just for some extra bucks. Yeah, you can buy from any US store like Amazon, eBay, BestBuy, Apple and even from US local stores while sitting in your home. it’s simple and easy.

These companies are virtual address provider or we can call them package forwarding companies. In this post, I am going to discuss some best package and mail forwarding companies that offer good service at affordable rates. I will focus more towards the quality of service instead of price as during my research I came to know that some fake companies steal customer packages and provide lame excuses and customer can’t do anything to get his money back. So don’t trust any company before reading this post completely.

 

How do these companies work?

When you sign up on any of these sites, they will instantly provide you a custom address where you can receive different types of packages and letters depending upon your account type and their policies.

You might be thinking how these companies provide addresses to thousand of customers. Do they have a lot of offices or warehouse? – No. They only have few warehouses and they provide the same address to every customer. The trick here is that they add customer number with their address so as soon as the package arrives they automatically add it to account with respective customer code. This way they can provide an address to a virtually unlimited number of people.

 

My Payment Method is not accepted countries or I don’t have Paypal

Your payment method may get rejected by these merchants as a security concern, but no problem, these companies also provide financial service for some extra bucks which mean you pay them using your preferred payment method and they will take care of the rest. Isn’t a good feature?

 

What if the site does not allow viewing product from my country?

You can’t see the product or unable to check price because you belong to another country. Not a problem! Simply install any free VPN like Hotspot Shield or Cyberghost and then surf site like a US customer.

 

Is it safe?

The last question in your mind may be that; is it safe to buy via these companies? What if my parcel didn’t reach or What if they don’t forward me? – Well, you shouldn’t worry if you choose the right company and the right method, but if you didn’t do so then you are responsible for your losses.

 

What’s the right Method to ship via these companies?

First of all, choose the company which suits you the most. Then check company review on trust pilot and other similar sites to make sure you have made the right choice. The second rule is to have a tracking number for every shipment. Ask the seller to provide you a tracking number so you can claim parcel from the company if they lost it.
Choose parcel tracking and insurance option when shipping to your home. This way you will make sure that you receive your package and if not then you have insurance to cover the loss.

 

Can I receive letters with these companies?

Yes, many companies provide letter forwarding service for some extra cost. But you might get in trouble with the ammo as USP require form 1538 which need paperwork from your local law firms, means extra cost and time.
These companies also provide photos of received letters if they are not confidential and they can even shred them on your request.

 

What if I want to return my order?

Some of these companies also provide return service for 5-10$ plus postage fee. You can return package after you received it in your account. If you already received your package at your home address via these companies and you want to return package back to the seller, then you can do it directly without sending to these middleman companies. Confirm with the seller before doing this.

 

I am from the US, Can I still use these companies?

Yeah, these companies can also receive an order on your behalf. You can either pick from their warehouse to save money or get it delivered to your home. This way, you can save 10% shopping tax if your forwarding company has a in Oregon or other tax-free states. Also, you can use these services to receive packages and letter when you are not at home, these companies provide facility to keep your package in their warehouse for 10 – 90 days depending upon company policy.

Benefit of using Virtual address for Buying

There are several benefits of buying through these companies. Number one: They can save you money if you ship through these companies instead of buying directly from your country. Make sure there are not any extra custom clearance charges.
Number Two: If you are living in the US then you can save some tax using companies having a warehouse in tax-free states.

 

Custom Clearance

Customs clearance is also another big issue if you are buying something that requires approval or not legal in your country. Don’t buy in these case. I also got in trouble when trying to import my drone.
Also, keep in mind you many have to pay up to 40% tax on your product depending upon your country rules and regulations. Most small items are free from custom but it’s better to check with them before buying.
Most Common Type of prohibited items: Sprays, Batteries, drones, cotton, leather, fireworks, ammo,..etc

 

Back To You

Hope this article helps you decide the best service. I will prefer to go with USGoBuy for small packages and ShopandShip for expensive products. Both of them offer good service. Now it’s up to you to decide which service you will choose. Also, let me know if you know any other good service then any of these.
