Even when you went away to college, they were always there for you – on the phone, driving you halfway across the country at the start of the semester, and welcoming you when you came home. Now you have moved away and have a family of your own, but they still are a sympathetic voice you can talk to when things get tough.

In fact, according to a recent Forrester Report, “US online retailers can use cross-border shipping to reach global customers […] it is not uncommon today for businesses of all sizes to use international shipping to reach new customers.”
For companies looking to test the waters of new markets, international shipping is invaluable. With a variety of models, businesses have the flexibility to explore new possibilities while mitigating risk.

If you’re in the market for a new car, you have a lot of factors to consider. Buying new vs. buying used, going through a dealership or buying direct from an owner, how much you can spend … not to mention what kind of car you’ll end up with and the features you need.
