International package shipping to Saudi Arabia
My niece is working in Saudi Arabia and has asked me to send a few of her personal belongings to her. Is it safe to ship a small package to her there? 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. She wants some of her photographs and things so she won’t feel so homesick. I once tried sending my friend in South America some housewarming gifts for her little apartment. I spent over $300 on the stuff and the shipping cost me an additional $80 for the package. It never got there and nobody could ever trace it. Even more frustrating than losing the money was disappointing my friend. I don't want a similar experience with my niece. Are there companies that take responsibility for a package for the entire shipment, all the way to the destination? I want someone who will guarantee delivery without asking an arm and a leg.
