    I'd like to buy pc parts from us to send to europe, anybody here has experience with package forwarding? (drop shippers? maybe? :) ) If I check on amazon the items as gifts, will I avoid duties? Which service do you consider the best for price and reliability?

    I've used Myus and Borderlinx in the past, but currently using Parcelbound now. Each service has its own pros/cons; for me I wanted to deal with a customer service department that would get back to me quickly. You can check out each of these sites and decide which one works out the best for you.

    Not sure where you're located now, but you could ask some smaller retailers how they get their products into their stores. I did this in Central America and got some good tips on who to use (Florida companies are cheapest for shipping to Central America) and the consequences of getting caught importing goods as "gifts" if they aren't. Also they'll have info on duties, etc.

    I need to ship from us to eu, and actually my question was much more personal than business related, sorry if I was misunderstood :)
    I'm checking usabox and borderlinx, I see the biggest thing to pay is the customs on declared value, and I don't know how they behave with amazon gifts i.e. I'd like to know if someone ever forwarded packages bought on amazon from such services or similar !
