Introduction

I reviewed www.shipito.comback in August and I’d encourage you to read the original review.  Nothing has changed in the way of services or information. 

Back when I wrote the review I’d only used them three times which is hardly the basis for true love.  Now, I’ve used them to ship 55 packages to, and then they consolidated the 55 packages into 9 main shipments forwarded to me here in Thailand.  True Love it is!

Performance

 

The chart above is the bottom line.  55 processed packages consolidated into 9 main shipments forwarded to Thailand at a cost savings of $1643.82.  There’s not a lot more to say.

I’ve verified their claimed price savings and if anything they saved me more when you consider individual taxation and duties on the Thailand end of the journey. 

As soon as your shipment from your retailer arrives at www.shipito.com you are notified within the hour via email.  I’ve compared the times of these notification emails to the UPS and Fedex delivery tracking information to come up with the “within an hour” time frame. 

Once you’re notified you’re asked to log on to www.shipito.com and fill out the customs information and if all your packages have arrived, provide consolidation and shipping method information.  This takes just minutes as their online system is both intuitive and their servers fast. 

I keep my customs information as ‘general’ as possible and of course I always declare the full value of each item.  I keep it general because I realize not all Thai Customs Personnel understand all English words, so I try to keep it general to help speed things along.  Instead of saying “10” Ginzu fillet Fish knife” you can simply put “kitchen knife.”  It’s legal, and it works. 

I’ve had zero questions and zero hold-ups by customs officials or my local post office.  I always choose the “US Postal Express Mail” because it’s a bit cheaper and my local post office is convenient.  You can choose DHL, UPS, or Fedex if you want door to door delivery. 

It’s not hard to pinpoint, that if you can arrange to have your package arrive either right before or on a weekend, it gets passed through without taxes or duty.  Or as least 5 out of 5 of mine which arrived during this time frame passed through without taxes or duty regardless of their claimed value.  On other days they’ve charged the 7% VAT and never any other type of duty on any item.  I’ve shipped a variety of merchandise from Levi jeans, to food items to expensive computer parts.  Average shipping time is 4-5 days. 

 

Summary

 

www.shipito.com is professional, reliable, and fast.  I’ve only used their “special services” to expedite one shipment and within hours of the request my package was consolidated and sent out for shipment.  They’ve saved me tons of money through consolidation and removal of excess packaging when requested to reduce shipment weight.

Overall the experience of sending consumer products from the USA to Thailand has been very positive, easy, and I’ve been able to get the products I need/want at greatly reduced prices when compared to local prices.  And many times I’ve ordered and received professional camera and computer items just not available here at any price. 

Highly Recommended!
