    Hey guys! i came accross http://www.bongous.com

    Anyone used that place to ship stuff from the states before? Is it a trustworthy site?

    Ive read all the website and seems to be a good service with several options for international purchases, cheaper than other places, as well shipping savings after you get a few items

    But before joining, just wanted to know if anyone had any kind of experience with them or any other mail forwarding services for the matter :)

    You might have to Google to find customer reviews for the site. There's bound to be feedback for its services posted somewhere online.

    Good thread, hope to see some responses. Might need it in the future.

    The reviews on the internet seem to be polarized, some love it, others hate it.

    Bongo International

    I'm in AU and I have used them. I ordered from an online store called Metal Cloak that sells Jeep parts. I ordered multiple items at once and they consolidated everything into the least amount of packaging as possible which kept the price down. I also got my stuff in approximately 4-5 days too. I would recommend Bongo.

    There were a couple of times when I had questions and I used their live chat feature (even before I was actually a paying customer) and they were really helpful with just general forwarding questions and stuff.

    Well, i googled the site when i posted the thread, but as ComicGuy89 said:

    I didnt found anything conclusive... still, it seems the negative feedback was posted by only 2 persons on different sites

    Still, they have like 2 years on the market



    Cool to know, specially since i want to order some things for my car that only ships to the US...
