Bring the US to you!
Have you ever gone out for a bit of retail therapy, only to come back empty handed? By no means are we complaining about shopping in Hong Kong – we’ve got everything from market stalls to designer boutiques – but sometimes we just can’t find what we’re looking for. That magic pair of jeans you discovered in university are the only ones that you wear now, and you can’t find bras that are as comfortable as the ones from that specific lingerie brand…
Unfortunately, some of our favourite stores simply don’t exist in Hong Kong, or don’t ship here. Even worse when you find those magic pair of jeans, but the shipping fees cost more than they do! Well, our little secret to getting all of our favourite items from the US to Hong Kong is to hit up PacMe, a shipping consolidator that repacks to save you shipping fees and has amazing customer service that actually works, no matter where you are in the world.
Before PacMe, package forwarders (that still exist today) would send packages one by one or even ship boxes within a box. Imagine all that empty space you ended up paying to ship, when you could have filled it with more of those magic jeans? With PacMe, you shop at your favourite stores (the fun part!) and ship everything to PacMe, where the experts carefully repack and consolidate all your purchases into one box. They make sure all the space in the box is maximised so you save on shipping fees… talk about efficient!
What’s more, the customer service at PacMe is awesome too – trust us, we’ve tried it. The friendly online system allows you to see images of your goodies and manage the entire shipping process. Even the owners, Ken and Randy, are always there to answer any questions, big or small. They’ve even gone so far as to ship surprise goodies to their customers just to put a smile on their faces!
This is a real shopping secret of our girls, so make sure you check it out if you’re missing some of your favourite brands from the US. If you’re looking to shop and ship more efficiently, save some money, and snap up some of your favourite brands from abroad, make sure you give PacMe a try!
If you want to try out PacMe for yourself, simply sign up for a free PacMe account (value $40) using the code “SASSYHK” at PacMe.com. Happy shopping!
