Oh my gosh, I’m so frustrated! I’ve been working like a dog (a dalmation?) so I decided to treat myself by splashing out on this gorgeous shoe. Although it’s priced in Euros, it is on sale, and they have my size and colour, but… they bloody well don’t ship to South Africa. Aargh!
There is a solution, I’m glad to say, by the name of Postbox Courier – a company specialising in leapfrogging the South African postal system, and helping locals get their goodies from abroad.
I was contacted by Ken from Postbox Courier a couple of weeks ago, offering me a test run of his service, which I used on getting clothes for my bloke (not on shoes for moi!), and I was very impressed.
In a nutshell, Postbox Courier offers a central address in the US, UK or Hong Kong, to which you can have multiple parcels shipped. Then, when you’re ready, you can consolidate the lot, and have it delivered to your door. It works like a bomb, and is especially good for situations where delivery to SA is not part of the standard offering, which is frequently the case.
Postbox Courier has five R1000 vouchers for readers of Skinny laMinx (South African based only) to test-drive their service, so if you want to win one, please do the following:
- ‘Like’ the Postbox Couriers Facebook Page
- Leave a comment on this post saying what you would LOVE to get couriered to you.
Ken will choose a winner, and then five of you will be able to shop* and ship* to your heart’s content.
*Please note that the voucher is only for the Postbox Courier charges. Any purchases and any Customs charges levied are all your own expense.
