Post EZE Courier Service request

Hello Folks.... if anybody is planning on coming down to EZE anytime now until September 10-15th and doesn't mind acting as a Courier for a few small items from Amazon, please let me know.

I need to purchase a few Sony PS4 Video games and two joystick controllers, and some OTC medicines (Dayquil, etc.).

Contact me through PM or else post here and I will be in touch.

Thanks,
Alex / Gaucho100K

Bumping this up... I have secured a courier for the Video Games, but still need folks coming down to bring some other items, including a Lego set, etc.

If anybody is coming down soon and has some free space in one of their bags, please let me know...

You should use the new ''fast and reliable door to door service'' initiated by Macri.

On second thoughts.....I did three months ago and I'm still waiting for my 9 loose tea order from the UK to arrive. The third parcel from the UK that's disappeared over the last year. No wonder you use FT couriers.

Ive been able to use the new door to door scheme, but through a full service logistics company that uses DHL and/or UPS as the carrier. I have no experience with normal Postal Service, so I cannot shed any light on how that works.

I think Hiddy's experience above is more indicative of how that option is working.

BTW, my current Courier need is related to Wine(s), hence the new Door to Door system is not applicable to my specific situation......

Yeah I reckon my British Corner Shop bought loose leaf tea found its way to someone elses door......a customs or Correo staff members door more than likely....

I hope to God they at least had the decency to warm the pot before adding the tea and hot water then allowed it to mast a while before pouring. Using a tea strainer and proper china cups of course. Pass the digestive por favor....

Here's a report on what the problems were with the Argentine Postal Service just over a couple of months ago:

More recently it was reported that the Postal Service has ~0.25 million unclaimed packages and a ~2 month back up ...
