LOOKING FOR THE BEST OPTIONS.

After my friend's retirement, she helps out in her hubby's factory. Every morning after their walking exercise, her hubby will leave for his factory after breakfast and my friend will join him later. Even though she helps out at the factory, she is free to meet up with her friends and we continue to enjoy our outings together. Being her close friend, I am also free to drop by to visit her or invite her out for lunch or snacks whenever possible.

Whenever I visit my friend, I would be taken straight to her office. There are certain areas of the factory that are out of bound for visitors because of the heavy machinery. It is also to avoid mishaps and to protect the visitors from danger when the machinery are running and in operation.

Recently, I dropped in to meet my friend as we had planned to have lunch together. That day, my friend was busy searching online for some tools for their factory. They are in the process of expanding their factory and upgrading some of their machinery. They have to buy some tools from overseas and one of their contacts have recommended them to buy from US. These tools are not easily available locally and they have been seeking help from dealers and agents which is taking up a lot of their time. Meanwhile they take it upon themselves to search online, hoping to obtain the tools in the shortest time.

After finding the tools, they will have to find a way to ship from US as some overseas merchants do not do international shipping and even if they do, their charges are very high. They will have to look for a shopping and forwarding agent that is capable of handling the whole process of purchasing and shipping their tools with minimum hassle and at the lowest rate.


With their contact's recommendation, looks like USGoBuy.com seems to be the answer and before they proceed with the go ahead, they need to get more information and clarification such as:-
  • What kind of fees does USGoBuy.com charge?
  • What is the general procedure of using their ShipForMe service?
  • What if merchants do not ship to package forwarder?
  • Does shipping rates include Import Duties and Taxes?
  • What forms of payment are accepted? Etc., etc.,
By now our poor tummies were groaning away and it was way past the time to go for our lunch. As my friend had said, it is time to forget about work for awhile to enjoy our food and chit chatting.

  5. I am sure it is a big job to get something shipped overseas....either from here to there or there to here. I hope your friend has success in the end.
