Anyone used a freight forwarding company to buy stuff from Amazon?

    So there's some stuff I want on Amazon but they don't ship it overseas.

    I see that there are various freight forwarding companies in the US that will receive your package on your behalf and then forward it on to your overseas address, e.g. https://bongous.com/ http://www.shipito.com/ and various others. However lots of them have really bad reviews and it's hard to tell what's real and what's not.

    Has anyone ever used a freight forwarder successfully, or have one that they recommend?

    If you have a friend in the US or I'm sure any reputable member on BHW would forward it for you. (Probably for a small fee)

    Iv used MyUS.com a few years ago when I wanted to buy some stuff from bluefly and everything was ok from what I know bongous is recommend by a lot of usa retailers as well. What would worry me the most is not if they are legit but how well do they care for the packages that go through them If I was you I would check the amazon return policy in case of a broken package delivered through freight service.

    Thanks for the reply, I am leaning towards bongo right now.

    Amazon doesn't seem to honour returns through freight companies but I think it's worth the risk... A watch that costs $500 is $100 on Amazon right now.
