MyUS Shipment Experience

MYUSShipment

I have tried a lot of shipping companies and very few have been as consistent as MyUS with all my products and taking care of the shipments. The best part of MyUS is consolidating all your items into one big heavy box and so the shipment comes out to be cheaper then expected. What I really like about them is that they pay attention to the details, they send you an email with all the items that they recieved and when they consolidate the items they either keep the invoices together in the box and list the accumulated value which makes it easier for customs. They ship through three options, UPS, FedEx and DHL, and usually Fed Ex has the cheaper charges and they are very consistent in their shipments always 3 to 4 days from the moment it hits their mailbox. For small items that I don’t care how long they take I send it over to Aramex since it cheaper but it takes an average of a week to ten days, another decent service is UShopWeShip from what I heard, but the nightmare I just heard about is DHL since they changed their pricing structure without notification from Mark’s post. Overall MyUS has been consistent and they are very accomodating, and I’m going to stick to them even though they are a bit more expensive in the small items, but what I do is try to order a few items together for a heavier weight one shot and then shipping them, it has worked out to be cheaper then Aramex. Whenever I ordered a model or a large computer part Aramex would charge me an arm and a leg but with MyUS its within reason.

MyUS.com BluRay Shipment

I have been saving up a bunch of Blu-Rays for some time now on my Amazon Wish List. And I decided to ship them all one go through MyUs.com shipping service. This was the ultimate test, and I chose DHL Express Service to see what would happen to this shipment and how many BluRays would be confiscated from this extensive list of epic and lifetime movies. And thrown into the mix is one Sonos ZP90, an addition to my current Sonos unit, to play music in other areas.

I had several shipments of Blu-Rays and the ZP90, and MyUS combined all the items into one big box for easier shipping. 23 lbs in total for all the items combined, turned out to be $180, the items got into the MyUS mailbox in Florida over a two day period, so after getting several boxes I clicked to combine them all and ship, the next day I get a DHL tracking number to Kuwait. Three days later all the items are in Kuwait and I just give them my civil ID and pay 10 KD for the tax of the full value of the invoiced items. Overall a much better experience, much faster, cleared in two days from customs and delivered to my house, couldn’t ask for a better service. MyUS is only good for heavy shipments as others have mentioned, its too expensive for small parcels, so if you want to order a bunch of items try combining them one shot and sending them over in one heavy box, turns out to be a lot cheaper then Aramex and a lot less headache. I will use Aramex for small shipments but for big shipments I’m using MyUS.
