This is my experience with vPost, very 1st time using vpost, i wanted to share this experience only after my item arrived but i decided to share it today, u'll know why.
for better understanding i'll show the progress in timeline fashion.

7th Dec:
-Placed order on Amazon.com

10th Dec:
-Item reached vPost's warehouse in the Oregon state of US.(Via UPS)
-Payment made

Below are the Singpost track n trace results from http://www.speedpost.com.sg
17th Dec: Shipments in transit from Origin (I guess "Origin" here means US, not SG)
20th Dec: Acknowledged at Transit Centre (Arrived in Singapore)
21st Dec: Processing at Sorting Centre
26th Dec: Processing at Air Transit Center
26th Dec: Handover to Airline (remain in this status until today, 4th Jan 2011)
5th JAn: Received at Destination Transit Centre (KLIA)
5th JAn: Held by Customs at Destination
5th JAn: Departed from Destination Transit Centre
6th JAn: Delivered

poslaju tracking:
21st Dec: Departure from outward OE
5th JAn: Arrived at inward OE/Receive item at OE
5th JAn: Departure from inward OE/Send item to domestic location
6th JAn: Item arrived at processing center (Destination)
6th JAn: Courier is attempting delivery
6th JAn: Delivered


Since the 26th, I have made plenty of call to singpost (+6562225777), my advice, do not choose check item status, choose booking (press 1) or they wont answer ur call forever. I guess they probably just referring to what they got in the system, which u can get through online tracking. So I asked for further investigation, i gave them my contact number & email add. No response nothing, nothing i receive from them even until today. They asked me to contact with Poslaju(I tot this is their job,no?), i managed to call poslaju courier centre at LCCT (0387871122), answer is the same, "belum sampai Malaysia", Poslaju asked me to get more info about the shipment(flight number etc..), they wont tell u as they said it's P&C.
today, poslaju confirmed they dont have the item, So i called singpost n said poslaju dont have it for sure, this is what she replied "err.. sir, this item... ... err... u're Mr.XX rite? ur contact number xxx-xxx blah blah...Sir, pls let me check(Hold the line for 6 mins).. Ok sir, we WILL do further investigation with Posmalaysia" "WILL"? i tot they did investigate after so many days. sweat.gif

I'm ok for the wait, since it's year end and festive season, but i feel worry now coz even they themselves cannot trace the item, since they got it handover to the airline, it should be reached within 3days rite. What happen? Where is my item? God knows.

I think it's acceptable for the speed of their service because it's peak season now(year end), Service charges is moderate considering my package is quite large 60x48x18(cm), customer service is bad, they talk politely but they are lack in information, hard to reach them by phone call.
My rating:
Speed: 6/10
Cost: 7/10
Services: 8/10
CS(attitude): 8/10
CS(Info): 2/10
Item Handling: 7/10
System update: 6/10
Overall: 6/10

FYI, my item volumetric weight is:
60x48x18(cm)= (actual Wt 4.5 kg; vol wt 10.2Kg)
Base Charge: (SGD) 24.40
Weight Charge: (SGD)114.24
Fuel Surcharge: (SGD)10.20
Discount: (SGD) 55.46 (Maybank Cardholder)
Total: (SGD) 93.38
I got my Item insured, the amount is not included in this total.
Table of shipping charges: https://www.vpost.com.sg/helpdesk/shipping_...rges/index.html

u're welcome to share ur experience with vPost orother forwarding service provider here. thx for reading.

Mate,

I've used vPost on several occasions and i have never encountered any late delivery. You should be aware that the delivery takes more than 8-10 days after your item arrives at Portland. And you have to take note the the period you bought this items are during peak Holiday season. And there's not hundreds of package goes out from US , we are talking about thousands!

And there is no point calling vPost if you had wondered where you parcel is. From Portland -> SG -> Pos Laju. I never had problems with vPost.

My blu-ray's arrives safe and sound.

sKyWiR3pT3lTd, that sounds great to u, and i understand that it's peak season now, i'm ok for the wait, but from ur experience, do u think it's normal since my item has been handed over to the airline on the 26th dec but still it's in the same stage even after more than 10days?

what makes me more worry is that my friend's item that was handed over to the airline on the same date, same time has been delivered successfully yesterday but mine is still stuck in the "Handover to airline".

TO BE honest, vpost and vshub is similar company, and both are sucks especially the vpost. they charged me around Rm1.1K for the shipping COST ONLY from UK (vpost UK) to malaysia.
FYI, the weight and dimension of the tv itself is 42'inch lcd tv, weight around 10~KG i guess.

thats totally a rip off and their customer service is shits. they just keep saying if i didnt pay within the 30 days period etc etc -- even i told them i need to get some money first to pay them, they'll take the item as their own.

vpost asia and vshub is shitty ever company, dont ever try them. go to other companies.

yes, i hope every one in the world read this, their service is shitty, avoid them

@pus27 - That's the trickiest part with vPost. I also had enough patience of waiting for my items.

@coralinkz - i think you could have bought the tele over here. Why do you need to import it from the UK..

So shipping charges are never based on the actual weight of the item even if it is very small in terms of physical dimensions?
Thanks.

They are still limited to Citibank credit card for the mean time, not sure they will accept other cards yet.

RM1.1k post fee shud be fair
borderlinx will charge u the same too
https://www.borderlinx.com/m/total-cost-calculator


I've used Borderlinx and Vpost, a few times
all shipped on time.
Borderlinx has better customer service as u can chat with them live 24hrs
but, those who work as live chat support, is actually situated in INDIA, or other country, instead of US
they just hire ppl to reply standard respond from other country
u wont get much particular parcel info from them, they just reply u according to what u can read on their website
Borderlinx use DHL, very fast delivery after it had reach msia, their postman will call u in the morning to confirm the time of delivery so that u will be available


Vpost, the great thing i like is, they may ship your item back from US/UK even u haven pay for it
they will just hold it in local portal and deliver to u when u pay it
this has greatly shorten the delivery time if i cant pay the shipping fees on time


anyway, doesnt matter on which shipping company u wan to use
u must always check out their website for all information, rates, terms and condition

and generally, msia custom give tax exemption for air parcel with total cost below RM500(include all post fee) biggrin.gif

if they did not change their rate
i believe borderlinx has better rate, i did compare the rate for most of the shipping company last time

i only use borderlinx b4
great thing is they will calculate(if any) your item custom tax b4 they ship back for u
if there is tax, u need to pay them together wif the shipping fees
and they will do the rest of the job for u

all other shipping company dun care your item custom tax
they will just ship it, if kena tax then will be hold in custom, wait until u pay the custom $$,
then only they will clear it

for those who deal wif msia custom b4 will know
item hold in custom is really really troublesome, depend on ur luck too tongue.gif

Not many reliable forwarders. That's one of the reason i prefer direct shipment to MYS.
Safe hassle and money.

Here's my experience with Vpost.

10th April: Placed order with seller.
14th April: Items arrived at Vpost warehoure (US)
16th April: Vpost matched items and issue payment order. Paid at same day.

^
No status update

V

25th April: Shipments in transit from Origin (from US)
26th April: Acknowledged at Transit Centre (Arrived in Singapore)
26th April: Processing at Sorting Centre
26th April: Processing at Air Transit Center
26th April: Handover to airline
27th April: Received at Destination Transit Centre
27th April: Held by Customs at Destination
27th April: Departed from Destination Transit Centre
28th April: Delivered.

Condisering the cheap shipping cost, I'm overall satisfied with their service. If time is not a factor then u can use vpost. Otherwise use other services that uses establisehd courier service like Fedex and DHL.My previous experince using DHL only took 4 days from US to my office compare to Vpost (speedpost + poslaju)which takes 12 days..

Hi Guys,

Pls enlighten me because I'm basically a noob here.
Why are you using a delivery service? Is it because Amazon does not ship to Malaysia?
(I've read that Amazon does in fact ship to Malaysia, pls correct me if I'm wrong). Is it because Amazon takes a long time for shipment?

I intend to buy a keyboard from Amazon.
Assuming they can't ship to Malaysia, I've to use 3rd party delivery services right.
What's the best process to get the stuff in a fastest, safest, yet affordable way?

Amanda, Can i please check with you if Malaysian customs let your kindle go through or do we have to pay any customs duties for bringing the kindle in. Many thanks in advance.

Some stuff Amazon don't ship to Malaysia so you have no choice but to use 3rd party delivery services.

I tried vPost two~ months ago.
I tried with five shipments of comic books bought from Amazon. Though i did get all my parcels in the end, i wont recommend vPost.

(will update the costs and timelines when i have the time)

PROS
1. I think theyre relatively cheap (to what im using now Shipito)
2. Local influence. I had a Maybank CC discount code which i could apply to the final costs

CONS
1. No consolidation service for overseas parcels

2. Badly designed/engineered/very questionable/wonky/'unprofessional' website for countries other than Singapore (there seems to be a separate domain and website for vPost SG which the other vPost websites will forward to)
-when i registered, i received an auto reply for registration of vPost India instead of vPost Malaysia
-a lot of badly engineered pages(maybe just one page actually) where variables from one form wont propogate to the next form
-no indication of the lack of consolidation service for overseas parcels
-support queries/forms process not entirely obvious or easy
-definitely minor issues, but the lack of effort/polish is indicative of the service they commit to possibly.

3. One forwarded parcel from Amazon arrived with the package flap open.
-Miraculously none of the books dropped out
-I dont believe its MY customs or Amazon
(will update post with photos later when i have the time)

4. They mistakenly matched one parcel for another, which required lots of querying to from several Amazon sellers

SUMMARY
The books i received were potentially more expensive (compared to if i bought them from Kinokuniya locally or from bookdepository) due to the no consolidation service

later on, vpost received and send to ur malaysia adress? hmm.gif
how much they charged for first 500g?

Don't ever deal with Singpost (vPost) if you have the choice to choose others. They are a terrible sub-standard company with poor customer service and slow shipping speed. I have many dealings with Singpost because I live in the area with monopolistic situation. Further, their shipping rates are not cheaper than many of its competitors nowadays. Choose wisely among the other alternatives.

VPOST simply SUCKS! Never have I encounter service that is so crap. The item can be received (according to shipper tracking) in their warehouse and they can take a few days for the item to show up on your account page. Worst is that it show "item received" but take another few days for it to become " match & processed" before you can pay for the shipment, then it sits for another few days before it got sent out.

I think the entire vpost internal process and operation sucks! There is no "speedinest" at all, take their own sweet time. PosLaju is MUCH MUCH more efficient!

The only good thing is that its much cheaper compared to comGateway or other similar service.

April 1, 2012:

ordered some toys from ebay totalling to RM1300++ (including domestic US-US shipping) and the shipping quote i got from VSHUB to send HALF of them (decided to split them into 2 packages to avoid duties) back to singapore is already RM1450. so go do your math. whistling.gif




Added on April 2, 2012, 3:24 pmUPDATE (2 April 2012):

You no longer have to worry about expensive shipping fees when you shop in different shops.
Our delivery services are 60% cheaper than main couriers like Fedex or DHL and 40% cheaper than postal services abroad. That’s half the shipping fees saved!


...oh yes, blatantly advertised on Vshub's website...but hey here's the reality:

an online store offered to ship my items directly to singapore for less than USD50, but thinking of consolidating them with some other items using vshub to reduce shipping, i told the store to ship them to vshub instead. well guess what, vshub is now charging me SGD109 solely for the shipping of the exact same items. i thought Vshub are in the business of consolidating items for customers and thus reducing the shipping, and NOT increasing it? no? hmm.gif Oh they dont even show how they obtained the volumetric weight figure used to calculate the shipping.

.. and that is just a small part of my stuff at their US warehouse now.. so imagine having all of them shipped.. RM3k perhaps?

so yes im giving up the stuff i have with them, around RM1.5k's worth of stuff i reckon, rather than paying that unjustified shipping fee.

guys, AVOID vshub like the plague!

by the way, i noticed that they kept deleting those negative comments on their FB's wall, while keeping the positive ones.. haha notworthy.gif

Mate,

I've used vPost on several occasions and i have never encountered any late delivery. You should be aware that the delivery takes more than 8-10 days after your item arrives at Portland. And you have to take note the the period you bought this items are during peak Holiday season. And there's not hundreds of package goes out from US , we are talking about thousands!

And there is no point calling vPost if you had wondered where you parcel is. From Portland -> SG -> Pos Laju. I never had problems with vPost.

My blu-ray's arrives safe and sound.

Hi VSAddict,

Chargeable weight will be calculated based on volumetric weight or actual weight, which is greater.

In your case, the chargeable weight is 17kg.

We are offering door to door service.

Thus, we will pick up from your US address and deliver to your Msia address.

The charges for 17kg is approx.. RM600.00 (including fuel surcharge).

The estimated cost above is subject to change according to your actual dimension/ pieces. Will appreciate if your can inbox me the details then I can give you accurate cost.

The cost above is not including the duty and tax.

if you do not have US address and you need to send your parcel to our US address then you have to pay for the domestic shipping charges and local handling charges.


Thanks,
A.Chong

I'd suggest comgateway / hopshopgo. These 2 are the same forwarding agents based in Oregon which is a tax free state.
Afaik, the difference between these 2 is hopshopgo provides paypal as a payment option.
They partner with DHL as their courier agent so it is very reliable & fast. Their price isn't the cheapest but reasonable.

seriously; vpost is hopeless. my amazon/ebay shipment from US to Singapore was tracked in the system but after they send it out from Singapore; it went completely off-radar from the web history ! how the heck to track? dump vpost and use other services. I am seriously hoping my packages will not get lost in transit !!!
