Mail forwarding to Australia is a much needed service, also, because the American companies most Australians shop do not provide international shipping to Australia. Some American sellers on eBay and Amazon do provide international shipping, but not enough to eliminate the demand for US mail forwarding companies.
But isn't mail forwarding to Australia expensive? Not often when compared to the high price Australians pay for American goods when they are available in their country. Because of its distant and rather isolate location, American items must be shipped or flown into Australia. The transportation costs involved and mark-up on those costs can often very easily justify paying for parcel forwarding fees.
Mail forwarding to Australia is not an expensive service, claims Dezra Guthrie, forwarding agent for My USA Parcel, an Oregon-based company. "We only charge $25.00 and less than 5% percent of value. We are probably the cheapest service out there when it comes to parcel forwarding, because we don't charge fees other companies do. We do not charge for registration, there are no monthly membership fees, our US mail address is free and we provide 30 days storage for free as well. We also offer parcel consolidation and assisted purchase and those services are $25.00 as well. We're very affordable."
With the affordability of mail forwarding to Australia, shoppers can rest assured that their continued hunger for products from America will be satisfied. With that being the case, Australians like their American shopping counterparts, can shop til they drop.
