Parcel Forwarding & Worldwide Shipping Services
We provide you with your own UK postal address so that you can take delivery of parcels from UK retailers that don’t ship internationally, or have expensive international shipping rates. We work with DHL, TNT and the Post Office to forward your parcels.
Some UK retailers do not accept payment via credit cards registered at an international billing address. In this case let us know and we can purchase the goods for you through our personal shopping (a.k.a. concierge) service.
Where items are bulky or heavy and therefore outside the standard shipping parameters forward2me will work with hauliers, couriers and freight forwarders to provide you with the most cost effective shipping method whether it’s office furniture to Malta or car wheels to Australia.
We provide more than just the UK returns address required to sell using Amazon.co.uk. Our additional services accommodate all returns scenarios, giving you the option to have customer or FBA stock returns inspected, photographed, consolidated and shipped, or disposed of.
Our staff are specially trained to pack and ship Dangerous Goods such as Perfumes, Batteries, Aerosols and Flammables. Available to most countries. forward2me has been accredited to ship dangerous goods since 2012 and in fact we are the only UK parcel forwarding company with the necessary accreditation.
We can provide full cover insurance for the declared value of your goods on request.
Save money by shipping multiple packages at the same time. For example, you order items from amazon.co.uk, apple.com and ebay.co.uk and we 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. There is no charge for this service and since you can store packages for free for up to 30 days it costs you nothing to benefit!
Combining and Repacking
Choose our Combine and Repack service before shipping to reduce the size and number of packages in your shipment. If the overall volume of your shipment can be reduced it will often substantially reduce the cost of shipping by air. It is often possible to include many smaller items inside a larger package reducing the cost and keeping your goods in one or fewer physical packages.
Door-to-door tracking makes it easy for you to follow the progress of your shipments online.
We’re able to ship goods zero rated (0% UK VAT added) to EU business customers that are VAT registered.
When you want to purchase a gift to send on to a friend or family member we can provide you with a gift wrapping service.
Invoice Scanning and Emailing
Where requested we provide electronic copies of invoices, delivery notes and other documentation.
We can provide photos of both packages and / or their contents on request. Our charge for this service is £1 + VAT (if applicable) per photo.
Couriers such as DHL do not allow shipping of goods if they contain or are covered in oil or grease. forward2me can arrange a full, professional degreasing service.
We will store each package we receive for you at no cost for up to 30 days. After 30 days a fee of £0.50 per day per package received is charged until your package is shipped.
