Parcel forwarding

Options
Would like to buy a discontinued item but the only company I can find that has stock is the manufacturer and whilst the do do direct to consumer sales they dont ship to the UK :(

Anyone know of a trustworthy parcel forwarding service in France or Germany? Its probably a one off requirement so dont want something with a subscription model.

    Thanks for the suggestion @marcon and its probably me being a bit dense but I can't see any parcel forwarding service on their site? ie where the retailer delivers the parcel to them in France and they then relable it and deliver it to me in the UK.

    Given the size of the sofa, it's freight forwarding (rather than parcel), so I don't think you'll find any courier service which would accept delivery before forwarding to another country. Shiply will pick up from the retailer, and deliver to you in the UK - it's just one collection/delivery transaction. 

    Start with https://www.shiply.com/how-it-works and that should help.

    Apologies - brain clearly on vacation! Where on earth did I get the idea...

    If the manufacturer permits collection from their premises, then the Shiply route would work well. If they don't, then I'm afraid I can't suggest what you actually asked for(!).
