Simply give your supplier your “BEST Direct” ship to address and we will do the rest.
Now that you are signed up:
- Call your bank to have them add your “BEST Direct” address to your credit card as one of your “Ship to” address.
Many U.S. and foreign companies will require this before processing your orders.
- All shipments will be received at our “BEST Direct” facility in New Jersey for processing and will be forwarded to you in Bermuda.

- We cannot ship any shipment without an invoice. Please send a copy of your invoice to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we do not receive an invoice your shipment will be delayed until one can be provided. This is a requirement of Bermuda Customs. We suggest that you have your supplier send you a copy of the invoice at the time of purchase to avoid any delays.
- Your “BEST Direct” address must be on all shipping labels and must include your name.
- Check the weight and size of your shipments before shipping so that you can accurately estimate your costs before they ship to Bermuda. You will also then be able to calculate if “BEST Direct” is the preferred method of shipping. With ocean and regular air freight services offered, we will be able to recommend the most cost effective means of shipping. Please contact us on 294-4428 or 292-8080 and one of our agents will be pleased to assist you.

Dimensional Weighing Calculations
Shipping larger items takes up a lot of space on the aircraft and therefore are billed by size or “Dimensional Weight”. For instance items such as comforters do not weigh much however they are quite large and can be costly to ship using this service.
Be sure to calculate your shipments when ordering to know how your goods will be billed.
Measuring in inches you can calculate the dimensional weight in pounds.
All airlines and courier companies bill by actual weight or “Dimensional Weight” whichever is greater.
- No single package can exceed 150 lbs. in weight.
- Carrier fuel surcharges are calculated and will be added to your freight / shipping cost and are accessed and adjusted by the carrier based on fluctuating energy costs.
Along with the regular method of payments by cash or check, we accept credit and debit cards for the shipping, duty charges and the insurance upon receipt of goods at our 7 Mill Creek Rd office.
We deliver free of charge in the Hamilton area!!!
If you wish for packages to be delivered elsewhere, we can also provide this service for a minimal fee.
