In fact i live in France but Scott (who lives in Australia) is such a nice guy that he is ok to let me use his address, so each record I buy in Australia is delivered to him, where they are waiting to be sent with all the records already on hold.

As it is a general statement would it be possible to use the present simple?

I think the continuous is better because the wait has a duration

Would it be possible write this?

Both examples are possible but neither is clear or concise. It's not clear who is buying the records.

Is this what you mean?

I live in France but my friend Scott in Australia allows me to use his address for the records I buy there, where they wait to be parcelled up (or packaged) and sent on to me.
