Your Alternative to Borderlinx

The US-based forwarding service Borderlinx officially suspended operations in June of 2018, following a dispute with DHL Supply Chain, leaving many customers frustrated and unable to have their purchases forwarded and shipped around the world.

According to a statement on the Borderlinx website, the dispute with DHL left Borderlinx unable to sustain their shipping service and were forced to halt their operations completely.

Fortunately though, that’s where forward2me can help, offering the best alternative service to Borderlinx, no matter where you need to ship your goods to and from.

Shop Tax-Free From Our UK Warehouse

If you’re based in a non-European country, you can save the 20% Value Added Tax (VAT) by using our tax-free warehouse in Guernsey for delivery and then we forward your purchases internationally.

Because Guernsey is a self-governing Crown Dependency, it is not part of the United Kingdom, and thus retailers don’t have to charge VAT when delivering goods to the island.

Exactly how much you will be able to save can differ, because delivering to Guernsey is sometimes more expensive than delivering to the UK mainland. In general, if your goods weigh less than 60kg and are worth more than £100, it makes sense to use our tax-free warehouse.

Head to our tax-free warehouse page to learn more, and find out exactly how much you could save on your goods.

 

Protect+ Guarantee

We also offer our Protect+ loss and damage guarantee protection service to give you extra peace of mind while your goods are in transit.

If anything does happen to your goods, we’ll do everything we can to resolve the issue, whether that’s replacing your goods or compensating you as quickly as possible.

You can purchase Protect+ at the same time as you order your shipping service and you’ll be given a quotation for the guarantee based on the declared value of your goods for customs and the shipping cost before you complete your purchase.

Goods up to the value of £5,000 are covered by Protect+ and you’ll also be covered for the cost of sending a replacement.

 

Free Consolidation and Free 30 Day Storage

If you’re shipping multiple packages at the same time, you can save even more money by consolidating all of your goods into one package to be sent to you.  

If you order items from multiple retailers, we can consolidate them into a single multi-piece shipment and send them to your international address. 

Although your packages will still arrive in their separate physical boxes this will be cheaper than sending each package in its own shipment. 

This service is free and since you can also store your packages for free for up to 30 days as well.

 

Competitive Pricing

All of our shipping services are competitively priced across a broad range of weights and destinations, with no hidden costs or monthly fees like many other parcel forwarding services. 

To find out exactly how much it will cost to ship your goods, be sure to head to our pricing page, where you can get an estimate based on some common items, or by entering the dimensions of your items and the destination country.
