    I am using Vimenpaq now for 4 months here in Bavaro and they are less expensive as EPS and have better organized service.

    The only problem, but that is regardless using Vimenpaq, EPS or any other company, is customs. How many times they removed the invoices out of the package and then tried to scam me with much higher values. They always try and I am sure with a lot of people they succeed!

    E.P.S. - Shipping Charges

    1-2.99 lbs - $4.75 per pound

    3-4.99 lbs - $4.50 per pound

    5-9.99 lbs - $4.10 per pound

    10-14.99 lbs - $3.65 per pound

    15-19.99 lbs - $3.35 per pound

    20-49.99 lbs - 3.00 per pound

    50-99.99 lbs - 2.80 per pound

    100-199.99 lbs - $2.50 per pound

    200-499.99 lbs - $1.90 per pound

    500 + lbs - $1.60 per pound

    What I am not sure of in my calculations is if the rates are used consecutively if you say ship in 75 lbs.

    Again these rates are for the weight of the package only, does not include tariffs, fuel charges, etc.

    Now I just got in a one (1) pound package via Business Mail.

    I have to see if they do money exchange.

    That $2.50 charge for one pound of weight was charged to me at an exchange rate of 37.95 pesos per 1 U.S. Dollar.

    Thatīs roughly 25/30 centavos higher then I get at the Exchange House.

    In this country, if thereīs a way to rip you off they will find it!

    I have to make a rectification: Since 4 days I am fighting with them and they do not (want to) understand; they are charging me import-duties for an article with a real value of US$ 193.99. Their last "act" was talking about a different currency-rate; they don't know that Banco Leon charges more than the normal currency-rate.
    After this, it is BACK to EPS!!!! Maybe more expensive but with at least excellent problem-solving service!
    Better pay some more than have to go through this unbelievable mess!

    They "won"!
    I have to pay import-duties for an article which has a value of US$ 193.99.
    The person in charge of Vimenpaq can't do anything and doesn't want to do anything!
    EPS here I come!!

    So the article arrived yesterday (RD$ 4,545 for 24pounds) and....

    ....damaged beyond repair!

    This company is the worst of the worst!!
    Of course nobody knew what to do and they send the package back to Santo Domingo and told me to talk to "them": case closed!

    So, after losing US$ 194 plus about US$ 85 for import-duties, I have nothing!

    If anybody is considering this company; forget it!
    They make enough money with the "money-shipping" business and don't give a **** about anybody!!!!
