Save dollars (and the environment!) by snapping up bargains at your favourite online US stores and shipping them to Singapore using PacMe
Shopping in Singapore is a grand affair, and though we love the array of high-end boutiques and local labels, you can’t beat a bargain. And ohhhh how we pine for those too-good-to-be-true deals from US websites that we constantly seem to miss out on! Not to mention all the other times we get a craving for items that can’t be found for love or money in Singapore. Or even worse; when you finally track something down you’ve been lusting after online in the US, only to discover the site doesn’t ship to the red dot! What’s a gal to do? Hook yourself up with shipping legends PacMe, that’s what.
Though package forwarders are a dime a dozen, we’ve been crying out for a service that not only has awesome customer service, but also repacks your goodies as if they were your bestie; cramming every space in that box to ensure you pay the least in shipping fees. Is that really too much to ask? The team at PacMe don’t think so.
Back in the day (and even still with some forwarders we won’t name and shame), it was common to receive packages shipped one by one, or even find boxes inside the shipping box. Seems kinda cray cray when you’re paying shipping fees for a box that’s half filled with packaging and air, doncha think? We say it’s time to stop the madness! With headquarters in sales tax-free Oregon, just sign up for your PacMe stateside mailing address, then shop ’til you max out that plastic. Sit back as the PacMe team consolidates and meticulously repacks your multiple purchases into one box – making the most of every nook and cranny – then wait for your goodies to arrive on your doorstep. This super efficient method can cut billable shipping weight by up to half. Hell yes!
The PacMe crew is also pretty darn good to its customers. We’ve heard word on the street of customers finding extra doughnuts in their packages – just ’cause there was a little extra space the PacMe team didn’t want to waste. Or that time some odd-shaped items didn’t quite fit, so PacMe owner, Ken, hand-carried them for the customer on his next flight back to Singapore – true story!
