    Buying items from US companies who dont ship internationally

    Hi

    I want to buy a few electrical items from a company in the United States who dont ship to the UK. I've heard that there are people in the US who allow you to send your items to their address and then they send it on to you in the UK for a certain amount of commission based on the value of the items.

    Has anyone heard of this? If so, can someone recommend a reliable service they have used in the past.

    Many thanks

    Inever used any but theres a load about i think, usa2me.com is one

    saw this yesterday and cant remember the name but remember you will still have to pay customs duty, I used to buy from Hot Topic until the customs started picking them up and I was paying a lot more for duty

    My aunt is cheaper :smug:

    Anything you buy from USA for less than £118 after december will definately not be subject to customs charges?
    if so, i will be buying much more from the states next year. Thanks rep given.

    I've tried to find info on HM Customs site but can't find a thing so not 100% concrete, but that link I gave is from the European Union so seems to be legit enough. ;-)
