Third-Party Courier:VPost Thoughts?

Post by Teresagoh98 » Wed, 23 Jun 2021 10:15 pm

As someone who got stuck in Singapore during this period, I wanted to get opinions on this third-party courier to ship items from the US to Singapore; VPost. They're having a promo 15% OFF shipping fee promo from their website when you sign up as a new member. Here’s the link: https://vpost.com/sg/

I’ve heard great reviews about them but have yet to try it to ship items here Let me know if you guys have engaged them before and how was the service :D

I really like VPost. They have never lost an item and their charges and reshipping works.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

VPost is great. I’ve used them a couple times, prices are reasonable.

Used these recently

Ezbuy
Vpost
Buyandship

My favorite is buyandship. Pure weight, not volumetric.

Alternative is Amazon’s direct shipping
It’s comparable most of the time in costs.

vpost is reliable..I've used them for shipping items to overseas. So far no issues.

Yep, it’s called ezship. Same idea as vpost. You get assigned an address/po box and you send your there, before you pay for the forwarding fees to sg/home.
