This Darth Vader toaster is so cool! 😀
A lot of people had been asking me about how and where I got this incredible toy.
Well, I got it online from a US site, www.bigbadboystore.com and had it shipped to me in Malaysia.
To my astonishment my package arrived at Shop and Ship facility in Malaysia after FOUR (4) working days from the time it arrived in the New York facility!
That’s seriously swift.
BELOW: See my address? I use the given Shop and Ship address in New York – which works as your US address.
So anything you buy within US, ship to this address.
Sequence of events:
25th Jan (Sunday) : Ordered the toaster
30th Jan (Friday) : Toaster arrived at NY address for Shop & Ship
5th Feb (Thursday): Toaster arrived in KL address for Shop and Ship & the courier called me to arrange for delivery
So essentially it took only 4 working days (2nd, 3rd Feb, 4th Feb & 5th Feb – Tues to Thurs) for my toaster to reach KL from New York!
And that’s nearly the same time it took for the toaster to reach the NY address from the shop.
Now that I’ve explained how I got my US item, let me go through briefly why I chose to ship via this service called Shop and Ship.
Shop and Ship an international shipping service that allows you to shop from 14 countries.
Shop and Ship has 14 addresses (forwarding locations) in 14 countries as below:
(1) US , (2) UK, (3) China, (4) Turkey, (5) UAE, (6) India, (7) South Africa, (8) Hong Kong, (9) Germany, (10) Italy, (11) Spain, (12) France, (13) Singapore and (14) Canada.
So if you buy something from US, have it shipped to the US address (which then will be most likely be FREE or lower in price).
(2) Once your item reached Shop & Ship’s US address (or your any chosen address), you will receive an email.
There’s even an app for you to track your item.
Then depending on countries, it will be another few days to a week before your item arrive at your doorstep!
So you can shop from anywhere in the world and still have it shipped to you in Malaysia.

Next, the rates.
Rate differs by country:
You can check out the Zone 1 – Zone 4 here –> http://www.shopandship.com/en/about/country-rate
My example: US to Malaysia: It is RM45/ 1st 0.5 kg (500 g), subsequent 0.5 kg(500 g) is RM35 for my shipment.
My toaster was about 2.5kg so I paid RM45 (0.5kg) + RM35 (subsequent 0.5kg x 4 = 2 kg / RM140).
So total is RM185.
But the good news is, Shop and Ship has just launched their new rates and happily enough, the revised rates are cheaper!
Rates from other SNS Origins (Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Canada, UK and South Africa) for first 0.5 kg is 55 MYR and 25 MYR for each additional 0.5 kg.
On another note, Malaysia will be the 15th origin where people all over the world can shop from our country. This was launched on the 30th of March 2015.
Well, that’s one piece of good news considering that all of us are already feeling burdened with the impending GST.
Shop and Ship is currently available in over 52 destinations around the world (using a combination of the 14 addresses I’ve mentioned above), so it’s your ideal shipping “partner” if you shop online frequently.
