I live in Western Canada and I really badly wanted to try out some Soylent… but no International shipping yet.
So I had it reshipped to me! If you are thinking about reshipping to your address here is how it went for me.
1.) I signed up for an American address at Reship.com. Cost $5
2.) I purchased Soylent and had it sent to the Reship address. Cost $300
3.) Reship received the package and sent it via DHL to my Canadian address. Cost $100
4.) Arrived in Canada but was held for Customs Inspection.
5.) Released from customs and was ready for pickup. I picked it up right away! Customs Cost $50
Total cost is about $500 Canadian which is roughly $6/meal.
The process was really smooth and there really were no issues. I can justify the $6/meal because normally I don’t eat breakfast. Throughout the day I have a large coffee $2 and I normally eat fastfood at lunch. The fastfood meal is typically over $10 and not healthy at all. I am NOT trying to cut down on the cost of meals, I just need my meals to be more nutritious. I am a pretty healthy guy, but I feel like a better diet would be good for my body.
If you are thinking about using a reshipping company, and don’t mind the extra costs, go for it!
