Mail forwarding from Singapore to Europe

Postby _Lan_ » Sun, 28 Oct 2012 8:18 am

Hello,

I would like to have something shipped from Singepore to a country in europe. I've been looking for mail forwarding services but can't seem to find anything right. Its just for 1 little package, personal post.

Does anyone know a good reliable service which can forward the item i want to buy or is there maybe someone that can help me out and receive the package for me? This seller just doesn't want to ship outside Singapore.

Please comment here or PM.

Thank you.

singpost has a monthly mail redirection service. i believe they can have your mail redirected from your current/previous singapore adddress to a foreign address...

you fill out a form and bring your ID to the post office to get it activated.

(yes, i know this isn't what you want, but in case smoeone else is looking for such information.)

I understand. I can let you buy it for me, its a game on ebay. Of course I'll pay in advance for everything.

No risk, cause your buying it yourself and I'm paying you in advance. :)

Seriously, you can't find this game in Europe? At all?

If the seller doesn't want to send it to you then you can't buy it, why would anyone in their right mine get involved with this!? as OSOD says, sounds like a drug mule thing if you ask me, carries a mandatory death sentence in Singapore, I assume you knew that!?

Good luck with this.

Please give us a link to the ebay listing so that we can better judge for ourselves.

Thanks for being interested to help. At the moment I'm already talking to someone via PM. Here's the link anyway:

For me, as a collector, is it about the Quake 3 disk. Its different from the US/EU one. :)

Yep, I know what he's trying to do. I often have the same problem with some sellers in the US on eBay being afraid to ship to other countries. They will gladly sell/send to someone with a US address, but hesitate with a foreign address. I occasionally use my step-brother's address and then have him reship to Singapore. I understand you pain.

I've made over 500 purchases in the past 4 years from eBay.
