    Shipping to AUA

    Advertisements



    Just wanted to know if anyone of you is planning to ship (food and other stuff) to AUA? I know Ross students use barrels. Not sure if that applies to AUA students etc.

    Is it more expensive than shipping to Dominica?

    Don't know exact prices, but the problem is that you're heavily taxed on things that can be found on the island. You basically pay the price for that item in Antigua set prices and then you're taxed on that.

    try tropical shipping. A 200-lb barrel from orlando, fl to antigua costs about $110 (including barrel) and takes 10 days. They also have service from kearny, NJ if you live in north-east. if you plan to ship food items, its better if you break original box. clothes without price tags and books should be fine.

    The reason that most people dont ship to Antigua is because you can get most of the things available back home (if not all) its just a little more expensive. People tend to ship to the dominica because these same products are usually not available on that island.

    Agreed. Plus keep in mind you'll have custom duty fees on the items you ship. It could be at little as $1 (during dollar barrel months of dec) or as much as 300 bucks US. Just depends on what the agents feel like charging. My advice would be to wait.. Get to antigua first and see what they have. If there is something that you absolutely need and can't find it on the island, then see about shipping it down the next semester.
