    Hey guys

    My parents are in New York and I want them to send me some stuff that I'm buying online (seller doesn't ship to Africa... grrr :banghead: )

    So if I get stuff shipped to my dad, what's the best way for him to send to me? Small package, some electronic bits n bobs :)

    cheers

    I agree FedEx is good, but I will also mention that they are pricey..compared to sending it via Post Office..If it's going to be posted by Family, then I say ask you'r Dad to post it from their Post Office...way cheaper..when we lived in the States, I used to send to SA via Post Office..

    DHL is also great from the US.

    Also look into MyUs.com quite useful when shops don't want to ship to Africa.
