A Story by Global Parcel Forward

You can now stop worrying about how to receive goods from the UK, visit today, and use our free UK shipping address to store and forward goods to you globally.


In the years before online shopping and e-commerce, people living away from home in various far-flung countries had to rely on the goodwill of friends and family back home to shop and send their favorite items to them. Apart from these been shipped at high cost to them, it often takes many weeks to arrive. However, with online shopping, our world has opened up and we have all become much more connected, all over the globe. Now we can talk to each other easily through online chat and calling services, and people can also buy what they want from the stores they want, with a click of a button.

However, when it comes to online shopping there are still some issues that present themselves. Retailers often charge high prices for shipping to various places around the world, with many countries not even covered at all. This puts a stop to the great value of online shopping if you can’t receive what you are buying at a reasonable shipping price. That is why parcel forwarding services are becoming more and more popular.

Parcel forwarding companies saw that retailers were lagging behind in making themselves open and accessible to people living abroad. Whilst they were offering free shipping and numerous discount codes to shoppers in the UK, they were actually alienating those UK citizens living abroad, by charging huge shipping costs or simply not offering any sort of international shipping service at all. So, international parcel forwarding services step in where this isn’t available. They offer forwarding services,thus customer’s purchases can be sent on to their global address.

These international parcel forwarding companies are now offering numerous extra services that are really useful for global customers. You can ask them to inspect or photograph the contents of what you have purchased, you can ask them to repackage your items and get rid of air gaps and space in parcels, you can also ask them to consolidate numerous parcels and orders into one shipment to save you money. All of these services will help you out, as shipping charges are normally calculated more on size than weight, so any way to decrease the size of your purchases will save you money.

It is a real surprise that the retailers themselves aren’t seeing the need to offer better shipping services to their own customers. Failing to offer any sort of good option could indeed turn global customers to local shops in the country they are living in, and UK shops could be losing some great loyal customers. International parcel forwarding services are essentially acting as trusted middlemen who can save you both time and money. As with any sort of shipping service, it is important you do your due diligence on the forwarding company you are using. Make sure they are reliable, have good reviews from happy customers and know what they are doing. That way all of your purchases will make it to you quickly and safely!
