Buying from the EU

I know there are lots of companies that act as a middle man when buying from the US to circumvent some companies US sales only policy.

But I don't seem to be able to find the equivalent in Europe.

Are there any Europe based companies that I can buy through to get around the Euro sales only policy?

My apologies if this subject has come up before but I couldn't get the search engine to work for me, threw up lots of results, just nothing that I wanted.

I have used "bongous.com" for shipping from the US, and they have a UK address too for same service from anywhere in the EU - or so their website says.

Thanks JayBo1, looks like not many people buy through package forwarding companies in Europe.

Might try searching the US sites to see if they have any European offices as you suggest

I suspect there will be far fewer companies doing that service because there is less demand: you can buy most things in the US cheaper, and I think it's illegal for the manufacturer to prevent their distributors distributing anywhere. But I might be misremembering that...
