Small package shipping to South Korea
My niece is volunteering in South Korea and has asked me to send a few of her personal belongings to her. Is it safe to ship a small package to South Korea? I’ve had problems in the past sending personal packages to other countries, and I do not want to take any chances since she is asking for some prized possessions that we can’t replace. Photographs, mementos and things so she won’t feel so homesick. I tried sending my good friend who was living in South America some presents for her little apartment. I spent over $200 on the various items and the shipping company charged me another $80 to ship the package. It never got there and no one was ever able to trace it. Even more frustrating than losing the money was disappointing my friend. I don not want a similar experience with my niece. Are there companies that take responsibility for a package for the entire shipment, person to person? But still at a reasonable rate? I want someone who will guarantee delivery without asking an arm and a leg.
