Every year most of us return to Singapore in August with bulging suitcases full of back-home comforts, familiar brands, and a handful of things that are just too expensive to buy in Singapore. Invariably we forget something, or it simply won’t all fit — be it clothing, sports shoes and equipment, or travel gear for school trips. And don’t forget Halloween! This year will be no different, but now we have a friend in the shopping mecca of the US to help us out. PacMe will ship everything we need… and maybe a few extra things that we just want.
PacMe leads a new generation of shopping consolidators. They provide you with a US address and then accept your online purchases at their tax-free Oregon warehouse. Your packages will be stored free of charge for up to 90 days and, when you are ready, PacMe will consolidate them all into a tidy, cost-efficient shipment. By repacking your items, not simply bundling your boxes, PacMe can often reduce the shipping cost by 50%. That’s how they are different.
Don’t just trust us (though we have talked about PacMe before), take a look at what their happy customers have to say or watch them pack a shipment. Owners Ken and Randy handle customer service personally.
So, if you forgot to bring something back from your holidays or just want an excuse to try out PacMe check out the guide on what you should buy and if shopping consolidators are worth the expense. Most shoppers are going to start with Amazon, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. There’s a list of over 500 online stores in various shopping categories you can choose from. Oh, and did you know that PacMe also ship wine and beer? Bottoms up!
