  • I've never had any problems sending packages overseas. And I do so quite frequently & and for 25 years now.. My inlaws live in India, and I have friends in other countries as well. For shipping to India, I use Fed X from here to Europe then switch to a courier in India for final delivery.

    My one best piece of advice.. Insurance on the package.. I've always insured packages, and luckily have never actually had to have it. But I always insure just in case. Also make sure depending on where overseas you are sending the package, that it is an item(s) that can be brought into the country.

  • I've never had a problem but I avoid sending anything expensive and if i do I always get insurance on it

  • My son is in Afghanistan and I have not encountered any problems...just keep the outside of the boxes simple-don't write things like Happy Holidays-Happy Birthday-Merry Christmas.
