Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 300+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics. In the event if you come across a broken link or a non-functioning link/URL, please post a comment and report the non-functional link. I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.

Please note: I do NOT represent or endorse any of these links nor do I receive payment for listing them in my blog.

Many people use relatives, friends, friends of friends, etc. to forward their mail to them, or bring items from the States when these individuals are traveling overseas. If you do not want to ask someone to do it for you, you can use one of the "mail forwarding/package delivery services" mentioned above or another one either in the town (city) or location where you used to live or search the web for a "mail forwarding service"or "package delivery service". You have many choices.

Be sure that you checkout whatever company that you choose and that they are reputable and they have a history in providing this type of service. Failure on your part may lead to lost mail or an item, that you may not know about for months.

Please remember, once a "mail forwarding or package delivery service" signs a dated receipt for a registered/certified letter or for any item requiring a signed and dated receipt on your behalf, the sender is under the impression that you have either read or seen their correspondence or received the package based upon that original dated receipt -- NOT the actual date that you received it or the item wherever you are in Italy or the world. There may even be financial or legal consequences by not replying to a mailed request/inquiry in a timely manner.


Item #1: While you may pay less for an item in the USA, please be aware that you may be liable for Italian customs fees on any "insured" package and/or a package larger than the size of a shoe box that is forwarded to you in Italy from the USA. Please note: the Italian customs fees are NOT standardized.

Item #2: Please be aware that any item shipped to another EU (European Union) country or another country before its eventual delivery to Italy are subjected to the "transit country's" restrictions of certain "prohibited" items. These restrictions on "prohibited" items may be on but are not limited to: prescription drugs or specific OTC medications, shoes, tobacco items, etc. Please check with your respective "mail forwarding or package delivery service" about "restrictions" before ordering the item for eventual delivery to Italy.

That's it for Saturday, 8 July 2006: giovedì, 8 luglio 2006.

Have been using them for many months now, great website technology for shipping info, tracking details, and live chat for Qs
Personal US Address provided for $5, and shipments sent via air mail not USPS, so they get anywhere worldwide in about 4-5 days

Great posting! But you have missed an awesomely cheap and efficient parcel forwarding co called Shipito. I have used them numerous times without any complaints. From my personal experience Shipito seems to be the most resourceful and cheapest in the market.
