    Default Mail forwarding USA to Aus

    Have you used a mail forwarding service to buy stuff from the USA and have it shipped to Australia?

    Can you recommend a company?

    Is there anything else I need to know?

    Thank you

    Wow I was just inquiring about this yesterday and was going to post here but you beat me to it!

    I also am interested to see if anyone has done this and how much it cost etc etc.

    I've heard people mention hopshop&go, but never used them myself.

    I use hopshopgo all the time! They set up a po box for you so you can get anything sent there and they then forward it to you, or they can buy for you ( I think they charge 7% of what the items are worth ) it's all done through PayPal which is great , have a look at their website

    I use shipito, they have been good for me, only used their basic service, which means they don't consolidate parcels, but I got what I wanted and you can choose how quick (cheaply) you want it sent.

    They also take a picture of it so you can see what it is, useful if you have lots of parcels arriving.
