It can be extremely disappointing when you find a fantastic product on a UK online store only to find that the cost of shipping is greater than the cost of the product itself. It is not surprising that expensive international shipping costs is one of the main reasons people are put off from placing orders on UK eCommerce websites, However there is a way around paying these expensive costs and that is by using a parcel forwarding company. Here we will explain why parcel forwarding services are so great for online shoppers.
UK only shopping sites
Many online stores in the UK do not offer international shipping. This means that they are only willing to deliver items to addresses that are located within the United Kingdom. If you live in other parts of the world, they will not let you buy their products, putting a limit on where you can shop online.

Your parcels will then arrive at our depot before being shipped out to you using one of our trusted partner couriers. Our parcel forwarding services mean that you can shop from your favourite UK websites, even if they do not ship directly to your home country.
Cheap shipping costs
Although more and more UK retailers are starting to offer international shipping, it often comes at a high price. Even if you are buying a cheap product, it can end up really expensive by the time you have added on the costs of international shipping, making the purchase impractical.
