Hi all,

Am trying to buy two to three pieces of golf apparels from popular site like tgw, seems the shipping charges are quite high, wondering if anyone has tried vpost with tgw to save some shipping cost?

Thanks in advance.

From my personal experience, avoid Vpost like the plauge... there are much better options around.

I use Borderlinx. I think their service is quite good and charges are fairly reasonable.

Bad experience with them. Slow and expensive. Borderlinx is good but they only accept Citibank card.

These days, getting a Citibank cc is not difficult.

VPost OK, u have to understand many of our golfer here are very exited to get their hands on their new toy so they want it by the next few days.

Used them a few times, OK for general use or non-urgent golf orders. The price is quite cheap.

yup depends on your patience level. My experience with VPOST; avg shipping door to door is at least 2 weeks. I used them more than 5 times already. Tracking info is also limited compared to ups/fedex.

I decided that intl shipping is worth the extra dollar, esp. at sites such as rockbottom or tgw. Faster, more accountability (less party in the logistic chain), and more tracking info.

Yes I used vpost 1-2 times n I give up. Ex & slow.

Com gateway used once, not much cheaper as compared to TGW "in-house" shipping. So if I gonna buy again, I'll just use their shipper. Save 1 transit point and receive ur new toys faster!
