Would You Ship A Laptop To Uganda?

Postby Strong Eagle » Thu, 03 Jan 2019 4:05 am

Curious as to your thoughts. An acquaintance of mine thinks he wants to send a laptop to his friend there because they are so expensive in Uganda.

I suggested that it will never get to its destination because of customs and corruption. I know that when we needed to get computer parts to Nairobi, we didn't even try shipping... we put a guy on a plane with a carry on bag full of parts.

So... if the guy sent a laptop from the US via UPS or Fedex, you think it would make it? What if he used a sea freight company or the post office?
