The Basics of International Package Forwarding

For many people living outside of the United States, shopping online is a hassle. You may want to purchase the latest tech items or the hottest toys, but getting a merchant to accept your international credit card or bank transfer, let alone ship to your foreign address, is seemingly impossible. Thankfully, there are services that have sprung up to help the thousands of people who want to shop online at American stores. With USA package forwarding, you can take advantage of the best of U.S. shopping — with an American address and concierge services to meet all of your needs.

With Ships US, package forwarding could not be simpler. When you sign up with our USA package forwarding company, we will provide you with your own unique U.S. address at our warehouse facility. You can then have all of your packages mailed directly to this address, where we will forward them onto you. As a general rule, we will ship your packages within 2 to 3 days of receiving them, unless you specify otherwise. For example, we offer a package consolidation service where you can request that multiple packages are consolidated into a single box for cheaper international shipping costs. We can then hold your packages for up to 7 days, free of charge, as we wait for your packages to arrive so that we can consolidate them. The length of time that package forwarding takes will depend on a number of factors, such as the shipping company that you have chosen, the type of service selected, and the customs process of your country.

As a courtesy to all of our customers, we will open your packages to inspect them for damages and to ensure that the proper item has been sent before forwarding the item on to your foreign address. By comparing the invoice to the item, we can save you the trouble of returning an incorrect or damaged item from overseas. This is just one of the many benefits of our USA package forwarding services.

While we do not offer refrigeration or temperature control storage, we can ship non-perishable food items. However, our USA package forwarding company cannot ship food items that are illegal from export from the U.S. or import into your country. Similarly, we cannot ship prescription medication from the United States, or certain other prohibited items. While the import and export of products vary by country, they typically include items such as firearms, weapons, hazardous materials, animals or animal skin products, tobacco, coffee, perishable foods, and alcohol.

At Ships US, we can also assist you if a U.S. website will not accept your international credit card or bank account. Our USA package forwarding company will permit you to place the total cost of an order into your Ships US account. Once the funds have cleared, we can then make the purchase for you.

At Ships US, we strive to make your international shopping experience as straightforward as possible. We offer a range of USA package forwarding services designed to meet your needs. Contact us today at 909-399-0821 or to learn more about how we can help you.
