Taiwan Post Rules!!

  1. This just kills. I sent an Akai Deep Impact to Nifty Dog in Australia. The package was i.5 pounds. I sent it From Taichung in Taiwan on Tuesday at 4pm and he had it in his office in Canberra Australia on Thursday morning, all for 20$US. Beat that USPS!
     
  2. Nobody ever accused USPS of being speedy.

    Cheers to mingustoo!

    I wish we had postal service like that around these parts, too...

    I ordered a pair of pick-ups and a set of strings from Germany in July. Shipping with insurance was €40 :mad: and it only arrived 1,5 weeks later :mad: :mad:

    How much did you pay it?

    You'd think that with the EU thing going things like this would be easier..

    Deutsche Post was only willing to send an insured packet from Germany to Hungary for €40. Ridiculous, isn't it?
