I have now opened my account with AIRBOX EXPRESS. When I was preparing to move to Panama, one of the first things I knew I had to do was have a reliable provider to handle my mail from the US. I did a lot of research and decided on USABOX. They have been a very good provider. I liked having the ability to view what mail had arrived in the Florida mailbox and being able to discard the junk mail I didn’t want. Many months I have thrown away 9 pounds of junk mail. I never had quantified how much waste mail I got in the US, but now that I was going to be charged for it, it made a difference. My plan with USABOX was $35 a month and I could receive one delivery a month of 5 pounds.

The main problem, and the reason I started looking for a replacement, was the extra charges I received from the David DHL office if I had anything else delivered. I understand that I have to pay duty and taxes on goods over $50 dollars, but I just to receive my Linus box cost me $17.00. And the value of the package should not have been taxed or had any duty. With my new incentive, I asked for and received recommendations from Panamanians that also need such a service. It seems that the majority used AIRBOX EXPRESS. With them I can receive mail delivery 4 times a month and up to 4 pounds for just $17.

What an improvement. I get four times the deliveries, to my door if I want, and it costs ma ½ as much. Shoot even a country boy like me can recognize that kind of bargain. For a fee of $5.00 they will guarantee that I don’t get anymore junk mail. I know I don’t receive more than 4 pounds of real mail a month, so that is real savings. I have included a copy of the pricing list for the service I have contracted for below.

    I went to there site that you have provided and tried to join but everytime I complete the form press submit takes me to page error,not sure why. but it sounds good with there shipping prices.
    I have joind up with Access USA and I’m finding there fees abit to much .I have to pay a $10 fee to use there credit card and can be only to the amount of $300 anymore then that will have send money by using T/T. which cost me $20NZD to pay my bank in NZ and another $20USD and $12USD for Access USA to collect my funds. I dont even know what there going to charge me to ship my goods to me. is AIRBOX EXPRESS cheaper? can anyone join or is just for the USA member only? am able to put my own value on my invoice and request it to be sample or wholesales order? sorry for all my question but your the only person that I know is customer of this company and was wondering if you could help me with my question,I have emailed this company but not sure if I will get a reply from them. my needs are buying electronic goods from the USA and send to my home address.




  3. Hey Don-
    I am an intern at Aerocasillas and part of my internship project is to read clients blogs and make sure they are satisfied with our services. I just wanted to say thank you for your kind words about Aerocasillas we definitely appreciate your business as well as the client referrals.
    Thank you-

  4. The posted rates are wrong. I don’t get a letter without it costing me over eight dollars. There service use to be good. Now it takes over a month to get my packages to Panama. The shipping time keeps getting worse and worse. I switched to Airbox Express because they were much faster than my old forwarder, but not any more. I guess it’s time to switch back to Pakyapanama even tho Marty is difficult to deal with and it takes them a month in transit. Is there any other reasonable alternatives? The Panama mail system certainly does not work. Any package going through the Panama mail is free for the taking to any mail employee.


  5. The rates were good at the time of the post. I don’t check on a year by year basis and update the prices. The same is true of any prices of restaurants. You have to look at the date of the post to see when the rates were valid. Thanks for bringing this to other’s attention.

  6. I follow your website for quite a long time and actually tell that your articles often prove to be of a high value and quality for readers.
