As leaders in reshipping, PostFromUS can be your best tool when it comes to reshipping from the U.S. to Europe.
If you’re new to this type of service, it can be a little intimidating at first. We hope this article can help give you a better idea of the process, what to expect, how long it may take, and what it may cost to get your favorite products no matter where you live.
How Does A Reshipping Service Work?
A reshipping service is designed to allow customers who wish to purchase products for the U.S. market to do so, without having to live within the common restraints of many U.S. market stores. Typically, most products are not available in Europe and U.S.-based websites have restrictions when it comes to which countries they ship to. Most tend to ship only within the United States and to Canada. PostFromUs allows you to bypass these restrictions by giving you a free virtual forwarding address when you sign up for an account. With this U.S. virtual forwarding address, you’re able to shop freely with an address that the online store’s system accepts as a shippable U.S. address. PostfromUS owns its own warehouses with the same location as your virtual forwarding address. The benefit of your parcels being delivered to your reshipping service provider is that you can be assured that your items are completely safe. Once your order is placed, and you use your virtual forwarding address from PostFromUS, your order will be redirected to where you currently live abroad.
Additional services that come with your PostFromUS account include package consolidation which allows multiple orders to be consolidated before shipping to your current address. Oftentimes, this can save on not only space but cost. We also offer the ability to choose your own shipping provider for your packages, allowing you to find the cheapest reship option.
How Long Does It Take to Reship a Package?
The idea of package reshipping may cause one to think that package processing takes a long time. This isn’t true. Reshipping oftentimes takes only a day or two longer than the regular shipping process. If that’s too long to wait, we have additional options to fit your needs! At PostFromUS, our services are designed to offer flexibility to each customer’s needs, so they can get the services they prefer. With express processing, your parcel is processed within just 2 hours instead of the standard 72. We also offer the ability to choose your own shipping provider, where you can sort by the fastest delivery time.
How Can I Estimate the Cost to Reship?
Transparency is important in the shipping and reshipping industry. Nobody wants the sticker shock of a super pricey receipt for reshipping. That’s why we do our best to offer the best pricing in reshipping services and add-ons. We help our customers with our handy shipping calculator located on our website. Using the shipping calculator, customers are able to enter the weight and the dimensions of their package to see accurate rates from our shipping providers including USPS, FedEx, DHL, and UPS.
