Mummy ! They won't ship my new toy to Belgium !
April 8, 2009 4:03 AM   Subscribe

The Flip Mino HD with my own image will not ship outside the US. How can I have it reshipped to Belgium ?

This has me dropping of small river of saliva on my laptop keyboard.

Alas, the personalised design will not ship outside the US. I live in Belgium. How can I have it reshipped to Belgium in a reliable, affordable way ?

How long will it take ?

When I had to do something similar I used a mail forwarder. Basically, a 'company' with a PO box in the US that'll receive your package and send it to wherever you are for a rate plus whatever tax you have to pay in your country to import the product.

I used a local company so I can't give you useful names but googling seems to give a lot of results.

I think you should try googling for package forwarding. These guys seem to do it.
Although I really think you should post to Metatalk for a volunteer to act as middleman in exchange for whatever they want from Belgium.

I think those threads get yanked from MeTa and make baby Jesus cry.

Thanks all - my mother tongue is not english. I knew the service existed but had no idea what were the exact words required for the googling. "reshipping" leads to pages warning about scams.

Well, I'm in the US now, heading back to London towards the end of April. I could always theoretically bring it back with me, then mail it on from London towards Belgium. As long as you paid for the camera and shipping costs, of course...
