How to Get Items from Purolator USA Delivered to Costa Rica
Receiving items from Purolator requires a physical United States postal address – you can’t get around that. This address is where Purolator will ship your packages to.
How do you go about getting a physical US address to use if you don’t live there?
To get a physical US-based address, you’ll need to use a Freight Forwarder. These are companies located in the US that give their customers US addresses to use for online orders.
They help with the international shipping process so you can receive your items with no hassle.

In the years we’ve worked with them, they’ve never let us down (and we’ve shipped plenty with them).
You can now get your packages shipped from Purolator or any other US-based retailer to the address given to you by MyUS.com.
MyUS will accept the order on your behalf. Once you’re ready for it to be shipped to Costa Rica, they’ll send it out.
As a bonus, if you order multiple items online, MyUS will combine them into one large shipment before sending it to you.
Freight Forwarding services allow you to buy things from the USA, despite living in another part of the world!
