Have I been given the wong (tracking) number here ?

I've ordered a dress on behalf of the wife and it is being made and shipped from the Ukraine. They have given us a tracking number, but I suspect it is an incorrect one: The number supplied starts with RA, then has 9 digits and ends with UA. I've looked at the USPS Track & Confirm page and there is no RA suffix, only RE - and they always end in US, not UA So have I been given bogus info ?

Smarter way to consolidate a big international Amazon shipment?

Smartest way to consolidate a large international order from Amazon.com? A big enough order to get free shipping within the US, and of mostly small and light items from multiple vendors, but international shipping will add several hundred to the cost. This is to Singapore, but the Singapore service (Vpost.com.sg) is frankly lousy, and I'd like an alternative.

Hawaiian License Plates in NY‽

I just got back from a 500 mile road trip on the New York Thruway. Spotted three cars with Hawaiian license plates. I have never seen one before. Obviously, they didn't drive to the mainland. Two were older cars, mid-ninety's econoboxes, one a big SUV. About how much would it cost to ship a car from the islands, or did they just bring their plates and buy a car locally?

How does international shipping work?

I'd like to learn a lot more about shipping things. For instance, manufactured goods from China to the US. What is the process? How is the freight billed? How do you take possession of the goods once they arrive? Who insures the freight being shipped? Is there a good reference for this kind of thing that doesn't pre-suppose familiarity?

Should I return my stuff?

I ordered a product that can be damaged by heat. The company I ordered it from shipped it from Arizona, and as I just found out, did not include an ice pack with it. It's been in Arizona, where temps are over 100 for two days so far according to the tracking information. I'm thinking of returning it. Is this unnecessary?

Shipping clothes from Canada to USA: what does the Certificate of Disinfection entail, where do I get it?

I have 2 large boxes of used clothing/shoes to ship to the US soon, and the post office employee told me the volume of items would definitely not pass the border unless I have a Certificate of Disinfection. Unfortunately, this document seems non-existent. There is NO information in Google, answers are always something along the lines of, "Ship it in several smaller boxes!" or "Don't say it's clothing!" which are avoiding the point: I am trying to do this by the book (legally). Does anyone have experience with this particularly evasive document, or parameters that would let Customs determine the packages are okay? Or another way I could *legally* ship the clothing to the US? [more inside]

What do I need to know about selling my laptop to a guy in Poland?

I just sold my laptop on eBay... my first eBay sale. The buyer was in Poland. I've never shipped anything internationally. Looks like I can ship the package for about $40. It also looks like this sale might require someone to pay a Value Added Tax or import tax of some kind. What do I need to know about how this works? Do I pay or does he? Anything I should consider in the course of this sale?

Who else sells shipping boxes?

I need some shipping boxes for larger items. Unfortunately I only need one or two, so it doesn't make sense to buy from Uline. And the freebies from the grocery/liquor store aren't appropriate. Is there a more affordable vendor than an office supply or specialty shipping store for this stuff? Thanks!

Safest shipping method for valuable paintings

Need reliable shipper for art. I need to ship two framed paintings from Connecticut to Seattle. These are family antiques that I could not bear to lose. I already had a wooden crate made. I need to get the crate shipped. Criteria: - Highly reliable and insured - Speed and delivery date are flexible. I can arrange to be available to receive shipment on short notice. - size: the crate is about 2' x 3' x 1'. - Cost... looking for lower cost options, but reliability is key. - The paintings have not been appraised, nor do they have any documentation. I'm sure they are worth money, but the real value is sentimental. I'd rather not go to the expense of having them photographed and appraised. I've already requested a quote from Art Logistics. I haven't heard back yet, but I suspect the cost will be very high. And I'm not sure they ship to and from private residences. fyi... an earlier thread about shipping art.
