    Shipping something international??

    Wife got the run around today and went to about 5 different places trying to ship some skimpy dress to Scotland. She came home upset about it and because I didnít immediately pour her a glass of wine and cover her with hugs it caused a big fight. Itís fine now but I now want to know what is the best way to ship something overseas. Itís a small box and doesnít weigh hardly anything. To be clear I could care less about this dress and itís destination but Iím just curious.

    IMO, the best courier for international travel would be DHL.

    I've shipped many things to Canada, but only a handful to European countries. DHL is one of the few companies I know of that stays with DHL. I've shipped USPS to Canada, but that was a tossup. Once it leaves the US, tracking basically stops, then you play the guessing game while it goes through customs. Because of this, I typically avoid shipping OCONUS or Overseas.

    I have shipped a package overseas by usps with no issues. I just had to fill out the customs document to attach to the package listing all of the contents in it. I will admit that usps for any kind of shipping is a hit and miss affair. Sometimes no issues and other times they are dreadful to use.

    I have had no problems using USPS. You just have to fill out a customs declaration form. USPS is also the least expensive. I recently shipped some compressor parts to Tierra del Fuego, Chile at the tip of South America.

    Shipping Internationally can be a real pain! Although as others have stated, I've found USPS the easiest for non-volatile items.
