All of my orders through Aramex thus far
My experience with Aramex so far has been mostly a joy. Some frustration with the chisels which took way too long to arrive, but otherwise it’s been a breezy relationship.
Here’s a breakdown of everything we’ve ordered, where it was ordered from, what it cost and when it arrived.

I have no idea why the chisels took so long to get to me. Perhaps the guys at customs used them to open crates before they realised that it’s a shipment for a customer.
