International Shipping from Hungary

If you've bought too much to easily carry home, you'll want to use one of the international shipping companies located in Budapest or other cities to ship your packages.  If you plan to make large purchases it's useful to make arrangements with a shipping company before you leave home. Many shipping companies are set up to get customs clearance for antiques you purchase in Hungary

Companies with international shipping services

Federal Express
We've used Fedex for shipping packages back from around the world.  Not only is the service fast (from some countries, ground/boat can take months) but contents are likely to arrive undamaged, they'll provide boxes for you free of charge, and their agents are able to help you understand customs regulations for the destination country.

Tourist Post
Tel: 36 30 924 3129
Tourist post handles shipping for Herend and some of the other major crystal and antique stores in Budapest.  You can usually arrange to leave your items in the shop - tourist post will pick them up, package them, and ship them home.
