Our cost-effective parcel forwarding worldwide is a further service we offer to private individuals and businesses who are as passionate as us about Made in Italy.
Package forwarding is particularly useful to international shoppers who want to buy something from Italy when the seller does not ship abroad or is not equipped to meet the buyer's requests, or for instance when consolidation is required.
We are often contacted by honest buyers who are genuinely interested in specific items they have seen for sale in Italy, either in physical & online stores or advertised on classified websites and newspapers, but the vendors (whether businesses or private sellers) for some reason are hard to reach, have a policy to post only domestically, won't dispatch to PO Boxes, apply exorbitant shipping rates, sell products only available to the European market, etc. etc... In these cases we can help you in the contact phase if needed, for instance if the seller is unresponsive or somehow uncooperative with someone who calls from abroad and/or can’t speak Italian properly (we will rarely charge for our time spent contacting the dealers or negotiating with them), or we can assist you with your online purchase, like filling in an Italian form or profile for example. In any case once you have identified the item you need, irrespective of whether you purchase the goods yourself or you want us to buy them for you (assisted purchase/pick-up), we will provide a parcel forwarding service thanks to which you will give the trader our Italian address; upon reception, and inspection if required, we will immediately forward your goods to the destination address you provide.
Some examples of popular brands, websites, and platforms we regularly operate with: Boggi Milano, Intrend-Diffusione Tessile, Fashion Market, Marina Rinaldi, Luisaviaroma, Max Mara, Zara, Massimo Dutti, Depop, MAX&Co, Gutteridge, Doppelganger, Sandro Paris, Corsoroma, Farfetch, FootLocker, Asos, Footpatrol, Giò e Laura, L'Eliseo, Cometa Outlet, Vinted, VestiaireCollective, MaxiSport, Mercatino Musicale, eBay, Amazon Italy, Subito, Yoox, Mediaworld, Gamestop, Unieuro, Euronics, Esselunga, Panini stickers, Centauria collections, L'Erbolario, most online pharmacies, and many many more... wherever you buy, enjoy free domestic shipping with our Italian address and have your items grouped and forwarded at the cheapest rates. In case home delivery for your parcel is not available (e.g. Vinted), we'll collect your items at the local UPS Access Point™.
Our logistics is rather slim and organised, the parcel forwarding service we offer is in fact more direct and less impersonal than those where third party forwarders are involved, given that at Sourcingitaly you're always assigned your very own experienced and equipped package handler (ME:) who can react quicker than most, work closely with you and deal with your request from beginning to end, and you're paying only one person (still ME:), there are no other service fees or persons involved, that's why we can afford to beat most prices and cut response times (instant messaging available to guarantee constant and immediate support +393478185092 ), there are also no sign-up or login requirements to keep things as effortless as possible.
Parcel forwarding at Sourcingitaly is absolutely tailored to the buyer's needs with a straightforward pricing structure, you pay for the international delivery which includes a fair handling fee. Shipping options and costs are always discussed and agreed with you prior to payment; although the use of tracked postage is not mandatory we always recommend it for mutual security. We will professionally prepare and optimise for international shipping, repack when it makes economic sense reducing volumetric or actual weight, we can store and consolidate various items from different suppliers and group them into a single low-cost shipment. Apart from voluminous objects, storage is free, while for large and bulky items we will work with our regular freight forwarders to make your purchase as cost-effective as possible. Unlike our competitors, we do NOT charge for additional services like consolidation, repacking, taking photos, contents check, safety packaging, removal or submission of documents, customs declarations.. On the subject of what to declare on customs forms we'll follow your instructions whenever possible, receivers are responsible to pay potential import duties and taxes upon collection in their countries where due. You'll also be accountable for double checking what is allowed and what is not into the country of destination, and provide the relevant paperwork if requested, while as regards what can leave Italy by air you need to bear in mind the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) which is the industry standard for shipping dangerous goods by air. If you require us to pay on your behalf, you will incur an additional fee (personal shopping), consider that if you use a payment method that charges fees to the receiver you will need to add those fees on top in order for us to receive the net amount to purchase your items.
Our handling fees are amongst the cheapest around (feel free to compare with similar parcel forwarding services, which BTW won't be as comprehensive, flexible, and accommodating as us, so our returning customers say) and may vary depending on typology and dimensions of the package. Contrary to letters we cannot provide a fixed pricelist for packages because the variety of shipping methods is extremely wide and also changes in time, so to ensure clients at each occasion receive the best quotes we need weight and ideally approximate size, do contact us for enquiries and quick estimates, open 24/7 with fast replies. If you find our costs higher than any other Italian forwarder, please let us know and we'll try to beat that!
While Italian fashion is king, we’ve posted all sorts of items, from tech to food and everything in between. From big to small, from very valuable to valueless, to an extremely wide variety of countries. Get in touch and get started now!
