I use US Global Mail instead

tried MyUS a while ago but the customer service their sucked. plus they added a whole bunch of little fees on my bill which were not shown upfront.
switched to usglobal mail and have been a happy camper since. they let me see photos of all my boxes for free (unlike myus and bongo) and i feel much better seeing that box from Apple is there in my box.

plus i can write my own customs declarations- which is a huge help with custom duties.

i have been using them for 2 yrs now and have been happy with the service.
HTH.

Bongo sucks big time...

I've been a loyal Bongo customer for up to 3 years now.
But after the first year of excellent service, it just started to go downhill from there onwards, year after year.

I'm a frequent and heavy shopper and has shipped tons of stuffs from US to Malaysia.

First case, they lost my item in my inventory.
Second case, (and up until now too) they seem to not know how to ship in appropriate box sizes. One time, my box is so long and big some more, that it got damaged and an item inside was missing.

Most recent one was, they did not inform me about my items being in storage for slightly longer, and they decided to purge all my items without my knowledge, resulting in me losing US$1,000 worth of goods in my inventory. They will not reimburse me a single cent or even some compensation, because of their failure to send out a warning email to inform me of the situation before they decided to empty my inventory, 3/4 of it were cleared out by them. What an ass!!!

They used to inform me before, last year, about items being in inventory, after the free 21 days storage, they sent me an email warning, in which i promptly address it and have all my items shipped out, before they decided to discard everything off my inventory.

I paid US$15 every month for a better service at least. I will be changing forwarding agent very soon. And I definitely do not recommend Bongo to anyone wishing to join. I agree to other people's comments too. They are lousy and charges very expensive too.

If you use one of these services, do you have to pay any sales tax on a rMBP or do you just pay what it shows in the online store?

I understand the MyUS fees, what I want to know is do Apple just charge $2699 for the rMBP or is it $2600 + sales tax?
How much is the sales tax?

As many others have said, I used MyUS but after a while service got worse.

Recently I used myMallBox.com to ship shirts for my sister. I think they were pretty new at the time but the customer service wasn't bad and the shipping prices were low.
