Whether they are for themselves as collectors or to sell to others as a business, candles are a huge sale.

Recently it was brought to my attention that customs is cracking down severely on product going into the UK from the USA. By this I simply mean that any items containing alcohol. We all do our best to follow the rules and adhere to the restrictions and regulations of the international boundaries, nonetheless there are some that will risk this and ship items anyway. It has been an iffy subject over the past several months. In my personal and professional opinion, with the amount that my clients spend on merchandise here in the USA,  I wouldn’t recommend buying the below mentioned bits if you live in the UK and having them shipped to you.

To those of you who are doing this, (buying from sellers in the US and shipping to the UK) do know that should customs randomly sort through your package(s) and they are doing this much more frequently, should during their search they happen to find  restricted merchandise being sent to the UK, primarily containing items with alcohol such as antibacs better known as hand sanitizers (pocketbacs) or fragrance mists, foaming hand soaps, some hand lotions, creams and some shower gels even. If you still choose to buy these items, it is your loss if they are stopped at customs

. Another no-no is room sprays or anything in a canister that is not made of plastics as these are combustible. With that being said, should you feel the need to take a risk and your package is searched, you lose your entire package! POOF! GONE. I don’t know about you but I am not willing to take the risk that as I pride myself on great customer service and having had my business for several years sending merchandise abroad, I would and have felt awful about such a thing happening. Most of my customers that buy from me have been with me for months, or even years and never had  had such an issue as I have this past week. Many packages were rejected with hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise inside of these packages. Unless you have full value on your entire contents of your package you lose. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to lose anything, nor should you. I will not be responsible for any losses either.

What areas are considered the UK? See the map below for more details. It really does sadden me to have to write this, nevertheless, I’ve been burned myself and I am allusive in the restrictions verbiage. From someone whose customers may lose here, please don’t take the risk. If you do and you are caught, your items are auctioned off at one of many customs hubs where employees there I have been told buy your goods for a lost cost.

My mission is and always has been to offer my clients the best customer service and with that being said my advice is to please always stay fluent with customs regulations and rules when shipping via eBay or any carrier for that matter to the UK or anywhere abroad. Alcohol is alcohol. That’s it… That’s my two cents. I am certainly not speaking poorly about the customs regulatory committee or their organization, I am only forwarding on to you the information I was given about this recent change. I am not an attorney but I do like to follow the laws and I would absolutely hate to see anyone lose monies for merchandise that you paid good hard earned cash for. It is not the responsibility of Savin Exporting to remind you (the customer/client) of policies or restrictions. Please keep up to date with customs restrictions and prohibited to send page as well as our website www.SavinExporting.com 

I love my life and what I do, no doubt about it, nonetheless, there are some woes and I’ll explain more as I write this article. Personally, what makes my job so exciting is the amount of clients that I have around the globe and the amount of various items that they buy using me as their personal shopper every week, month, quarter, and or just a few times a year when they shop in bulk. I have had such an enormous outpour of followers on Instagram and I cannot thank those enough who have been so gracious  to tell family, friends and even complete strangers about my services as a personal shopper whether it be their classmate, roommate, brother, sister, cousin, mom, dad, aunt, uncle or spouse. I have clients that do testimonials and short videos telling others about their experiences with me and Savin Exporting

I take what I do very seriously as I shop for each and every customer as if I were shopping for myself. I built my website a few months back and remind people to review it as policies do change without notification. My shopper fees are 15% across the board except for twice a year and that is during any semi annual sales that stores may have both at their brick and mortar or online. I prefer doing all of my business online as my time is valuable and getting in a car and driving about takes more time and effort. It also sets me up for the things that people do not think about which are accidents during wet or dangerous seasons. Ice and snow are hazardous in my region and it only takes once to have this happen for anyone to not want to get in the car again for this exact reason.

Most of my customers disregard the increase shopper fees during any semi annual sales, or after holiday sales as they couldn’t get these bargains with anyone else at the ridiculously low prices offered on a website, and if they did, it is most likely because that personal shopper in the USA is not claiming taxes as a running business owner which then puts me in that shaded area where I end up losing. You see, here, I am up against those selling online that are working and selling for ‘fun money’ or so that they don’t have to work a real job and punch a time clock while their other half or significant does. That’s ok IF you are paying taxes. If a personal shopper doesn’t have an EIN number or a tax ID and is selling and making over $600 annually, they need to fill out a 1099 and most of them don’t. This is what hurts this aspect of my business and being a personal shopper. I have to pay taxes and so should they have to as well.

I don’t run a fly-by-night profession. I run my business on good ethics, morals and values and I expect my employees to do the same. I have children and want them to realize that mom worked hard to get where she is today and that when I get knocked down, I pick myself back up. I have always pushed myself to do more all while striving to shape/mold my kids as well as my coworkers into learning how to run a business themselves and how not to get bullied by those that don’t like change. Mentoring is my middle name. I want everyone to succeed as I have and I don’t want others to get discouraged when they fail. We all fail. We must in order to learn from past mistakes. When this happens in the line of work that I do, you’re either on board with me or you jump ship. I have had repeat customers for well over 6 years now and I get customers that are newbies. There are also those that leave and think that they’ve found someone less expensive and go with them,…until they get ripped off. Their anguish is saddening to say the least. Just ask a few of my customers that have left and come back, or new customers who have suffered worse with another personal shopper who promised them the moon and didn’t return calls, emails, texts as they will tell you that my costs don’t seem so high after all.

Look, I try to do everything possible and in the most professional manner to keep my overhead low and my costs lower. Do keep in mind that in the line of work that I do as a personal shopper, many men and women desire wax products but it does not stop there. I buy anything that can be shipped abroad such as clothing, goodies, foods, treats, collectibles, hobby items, and more.

So many things attribute to the costs that I imply. Paper supplies, the boxes that I have to purchase to ship, packing supplies such as the packaging containers, the employees, payroll, labels, stickers, etc. I also have to pay fees on any of the sites that I use at cost of 3-6% and credit card interest if inventory runs unpaid over 30 days.

At the end of the day, we work for you and with this being said, we do our very best in finding you the best prices even when you think you’ve found an item(s) for an already low value. In all honesty, it ain’t about the money. Yes, of course I like the benefits and financial rewards, nevertheless, I do it for my own personal love for sharing wax and wax products with others and I enjoy buying for customers abroad who cannot buy from America. This gives me great joy in helping them purchase their things on a ‘must have list’ that they’ve created. I also do this so that I can stay at home and work from an office and warehouse while at the same time rescuing kittens and small animals when nursing them back to health is their only source of survival and finding them loving homes is priority for me. Year to date I have saved, rescued and at times bottle fed 82 kittens until they were ready for good caring homes. At the end of the day, my job is glamorous indeed.

I hope that when people read this they’ll understand more as to why at times there need to be increases in fees, and why they should always read up on our website to keep informed of policy changes. Since 2004 I have been in business for myself as I have owned and been successful as the owner of an online travel store, a flower shop, a bridal store and intimate apparel boutique, and now my personal shopper business, Savin Exporting.

The Reality of Importing From Questionable Sources…

How Well Do you Trust Your Personal Shopper?

I’ve been a business owner shipping to customers for almost 10 years from a variety of businesses that I have obtained and my goal was then, and always is to be professional and to handle my businesses in a very professional manner from start to finish…but guess what? Not everyone thinks like I do, and not everyone is quite as honest as I am. My grandmother used to alway tell me “Shelly, you get what you pay for, so if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!” Beware of the not-so-trustworthy personal shoppers that you employee.

As a personal shopper at Savin Exporting, I find myself in friendships with most all of my clients. Why? Because I am a very personable woman that believes that good things come to those who wait and I prefer helping people the good old fashion honest way rather than ripping them off which is what some folks will do to you unfortunately. I have friends around the globe now as I service over 70 countries and I keep my integrity of my business high on a pedestal of being trustworthy and genuine. I L-O-V-E my clients to the moon and back!

There are facts and fictions to beware of:

Fiction: You find a super low cost seller with little experience that will promise you the moon making your costs seem too hard to pass by and you bite on this like a shark. Then you will succumb to a more real reality. Either the products are fake or the products arrive to you not shipped correctly which will cause damage, breakage or other miscellaneous catastrophies. Lastly you will find a seller that is impossible to get a hold of or then becomes what we lie to call ‘a mole’ which means that there is virtually never any follow up if an issues arises.

Fact: We here at Savin Exporting pride ourselves with 110% customer service and deal with any or all realistic topics that might pop up. We pride ourselves in the overall value of your order. At the end of the day, if your order arrives at your door in a thousand pieces (and it shouldn’t) but if it does, we work diligently to cover the cost and send out new items providing we have photos to supply our insurance company with.

In closing, Pleaseeeee…if you are searching for a good personal shopper, get recommendations and references from a handful of people that have used this personal shopper in the past to make certain that you get what you are paying for. Whether you seek candles or caviar, do your homework.
