I bought a stand-up paddleboard from a merchant in Germany, and used myGermany to have it imported to the United States. Since it was considered a large/bulky item, the original plan was to have it shipped by ocean freight after having a crate built for it to prevent damage. However, to my delight, it was air shipped to my door and arrived 1-2 months earlier than I originally expected it to, and in perfect condition. Johanna communicated with me regularly through e-mail to provide me updates when I had any questions. Great experience. Thanks!
