Shipping glass question.

by Curly! ⌂, Great Pacific Northwet, Tuesday, November 21, 2017, 12:45 (214 days ago)

We accidentally left a package of six shot glasses, in a little wire carrying thing, in the taxi when we arrived back in Zihuatanejo, from Patzcuaro. Luis, the very kind gentleman who set us up with the taxi, retrieved the package and checked with the post office to see what it would cost to mail it to us. Apparently the estafeta cannot allow glass to be shipped to the U.S. Does anyone know a method of getting these glasses back to us? It's not so much an issue of them being valuable or rare, but more that we bought them for my son in law, who liked the them, and I'd like to get them to him for Christmas. Is FedEx or some other method available to us?

Thanks in advance.

If I were there and headed back, I'd bring them home and ship them to you. Maybe someone else reading this will step up to the plate for you.

DHL or FedEx should ship. Offices near El centro and Immigration.

DHL has proved good for incoming from Canada. I can only hope it is as good going north! Won't be cheap though

Like others have said, if you can't get someone to carry them up for you (we aren't leaving until April) the shipping will kill you. You'll also have to pay duty on them.
Check eBay. You can probably find them there!

Time to break the law. Pack/wrap the shot glasses well in a small sturdy cardboard box. If anyone asks if it contains breakables, just say no.
Works in the USA as well. Donate the money you saved to a good cause in ZIH.

This is a great solution CJ. You stay at the Catalina? I can hopefully get them shipped to Javier/Celso (even if you don't, I guess).

Staying at Villa M, but could walk over (and up ;-) ) to Catalina.
Just let me know.

I have added international calling, so you can call or text me when I'm down there to help me get connected with your items

Thank you CJ. All the wheels have been set in motion. Towards the end of your stay, if you'll stop by the Catalina and ask for Javier, the package should be there by then. It's not large and should pack easily. You drink free next time we are out and about together.

If you have not found a better method of getting these to the states, I will be heading down to Zihua in early December and returning to the U.S. on December 20. I could put it in my checked baggage and use a U.S. shipper to get it to you on return.

E-mail me if you still need the help.

Isn't it nice to have people offer to help? The world apparently hasn't gone completely to hell! Great to see and hear. :-D
