They’ll probably charge her import duty, import sales tax, etc. it’ll be painful. Expect a 30%-50% surcharge on product value.

She can handle it herself by heading to customs. A local shipping company may be of help, but that’s mostly for convenience. Feel free to use the contact form on thailandstarterkit.com and I’ll try to link you up with someone.
