Exclamation RECOMMENDATION: International shipping

Some advice from someone who has worked with international logistics for years.

1) Do not use postal services for international shipments of valuable goods. Use a forwarder like UPS, TNT, Fedex etc who can provide good international tracking. It will cost more, but for a good reason.

2) Do not manipulate the documented value of goods to try to avoid customs and import duties. This is illegal. Also, if there is a problem and the goods are lost or damaged, your goods will be regarded as having that low declared value by an insurance company.
