- Have you ever wanted a subscription partwork build-up from the United Kingdom (UK) but it was not available in your home country?
- Have you tried those expensive package forwarding services and ended up paying too much?
Well, our friend Ian Campbell over at Partwork Upgrades has put a solution together to help us all! His new Partwork Distribution service can receive your UK-based monthly subscription packages and reship them to you anywhere in the world. His companies have shipped more than 4,000 packages since 2021.
To keep the costs as transparent as possible, he simply charges from £5.99 plus the best-possible shipping rate from UK Royal Mail for each monthly shipment.
Signing up for this service is a simple 2-step process. When you subscribe to your favorite UK partwork from any distributor (Agora, Hachette, DeAgostini, Fanhome, etc.), you use his forwarding address and phone number – you use your own billing address for the payment information. Once you have a subscription number, you register your information on the Partwork Distribution website. That’s it!
An account is maintained at Partwork Distribution for you to pay for the forwarding services as the shipments are processed. This account is billed automatically, but can be topped up as needed.
If you want to forward multiple partworks, a separate account at Partwork Distribution is needed for each one.
I have seriously been wanting to build the Batmobile Tumbler from Hachette and this new service from Ian can make that happen. I highly recommend checking to see if Partwork Distribution is right for you!
One thought on “New Partwork Distribution Service!”
Certainly a very interesting service and that solves the availability of any Partwork available in UK and not available in other countries.
I think the most important advantage of this service is that Ian Campbell knows exactly what the subject is about.
I am in Spain and in my case, as in any other country of the European Union, receiving a parcel from the UK Royal Mail Service means importing.
Here in Spain you have to pay customs duties plus VAT (21%).
I don’t know how it works with USA.
In the case of the Enterprise 1701-D (and the other models that Fanhome has re-released) and for those of us in the European Union it would be great if someone in Germany would do the same as Ian (no customs duties or VAT).
That would free us from having to contract with UPS, Fedex, etc. for those of us who would be very small customers and the services of these companies are not cheap.
There is also the issue of what happens when a shipment has broken or missing parts or the shipment is lost.
In Ian’s case it would be back to paying all the costs again plus shipping the broken parts back to the UK.
