How can I ship my clothes to me in France...

Jump to last reply

I want to send a box of clothes ahead to France. I will be there for 6 weeks and for a variety of reasons, cannot carry them with me. {Other stops before, different climate, carry on only} I do not need them in France until the second week of October, so I have some time to ship.

Obviously, I do not want to have to pay duty or VAT on the box.

My research has shown a variety of methods with some discrepancies.
USPS vs.FedEx, UPS etc
1st Class vs. Priority International
Mark as gift vs.mark as used
low valuation = under 45 euros

I am sure that someone[s] here has done this successfully in the past.

Input please?
