Love online shopping? Unlock a world of possibilities with freight forwarding

How to get the most out of your online shopping

If you're partial to a bit of online shopping, you've probably heard of freight forwarding services like Reship or New Zealand Post's YouShop.
These services allow Kiwis to shop from global online retailers that don't offer shipping internationally or to New Zealand.
If you're wondering whether a freight forwarding service is right for you, read on for everything you need to know about Reship, its benefits, and how to sign up.

How does freight forwarding service Reship work?

Reship is a trusted international package forwarding service that enables you to shop from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom just like a local resident.
Upon signing up, you are provided a local address in the US, Canada or the UK for a Reship warehouse. Enter this address at checkout, and once the parcel is delivered to the warehouse, Reship will forward your package directly to your specified New Zealand address.

What are the benefits of using a freight forwarding service like Reship?

The best thing about using a freight forwarding service is that an extensive range of previously inaccessible brands and products are now within reach.
Whether you've been lusting after a cult beauty buy from Ulta Beauty or Space NK, affordable clothing from Target or Walmart, or a must-have item from Amazon US, Reship opens up many possibilities.

Will using a freight forwarding service save me money?

Reship's United States warehouse is based in Oregon, where there is no sales tax. This means you can save on purchases compared to buying the same items in New Zealand.
Once your parcel arrives in New Zealand, taxes and duties may apply before it clears New Zealand Customs.

What are the costs involved with a freight forwarding service?

Reship offers a variety of memberships, from a free service that charges per parcel delivery to annual memberships, allowing you to save on delivery of multiple parcels.

Can I use Reship for large or oversized packages?

Yes, you can. We recommend using the Reship Shipping Calculator for an indication of costs.

Can I use Reship to ship restricted items?

You cannot use Reship to ship prohibited and restricted items into New Zealand. Contact New Zealand Customs Service for further details.
Ultimately, a freight forwarding service like Reship is a great way to access a vast array of brands and products previously out of reach. You can shop just like a local resident in the US, Canada, and the UK, while embracing the ease and convenience of having your international purchases delivered to your doorstep in New Zealand.
