'Morning, Chuck! Enjoying the precip?
They're not 'shippers', so they can only quote what the truck lines quote to them.
As I mentioned, in my e-mailing back and forth, they stated that the Brokerage fees were anywhere from 0 to $10...and you know who was the $10 (clue: starts with "U")
On the Vega, it's shipped free from Amazon.com's warehouse to ReShip in Portland.
They'll open the package, check for damage, and repack securely for forwarding...my choice of courier or USPS.
I'm guessing DHL will charge somewhere between $40 and $100 to bring it to my front door. Taxes will also have to be paid...I'll be very pleased if ReShip takes care of that, but I'm still waiting to hear back about that.
They have my c.c. info so DHL gets paid upfront with no hassle to them...I'm pretty sure that's why there's a zip to small brokerage fee...bulk declaration, and Customs already knows the package actually contains what's declared; ReShip took care of that. No chance of drugs or weapons being smuggled
because the package has already been opened and inspected!
