Hmm, apart from your doorstep experience, I would prefer DHL over UPS in terms of reliability and possible customs charges. If you use UPS after all, make sure it is very well packed. They said to allow for a 3 foot drop in their depots/distribution centres, which says it all...


I'm only ordering tshirts so a three-foot drop shouldn't matter too much, but, yikes o_o Thanks for the heads up!

Okay, sooo this is the second time this has happened: I got my package before I got the Parcelforce bill. And I know for sure that the bill is for the package I just arrived, it has the customs sticker on the side and everything. I know I should pay anyway, but I'm just curious, what's the worst that can happen if I don't? :p I'm sure this has happened to you guys before, since this is the *second* time. The first time I paid right away because I thought it was for something else (which I also got charged for, even though it was SAL -_-)

All going well, you won't have to pay. They shouldn't let you have the parcel prior payment collection. If you don't get a card or demand for payment, lucky. ;-)

Thanks a lot for the reassurance! I was praying really hard that I wouldn't get charged since the package value was brushing the limit haha

I rarely get customs charges. Just had 5 in a row. Ugh. I'm broke enough as it is!

I ordered from amiami and had to pay £20 for a registered SAL packet. What is everyone's rate of getting hit by customs when it comes to SAL? Royal Mail states that "Items which should have incurred Import VAT and/or Customs Duty and have not been charged in the past are anomalies." Really?

Next time I'll be sure to use a forwarding service. ( ᓀ ‸ ᓂ )

Virtually every time actually. Depending on value and importance on speed, I found standard SAL to be faster and less hit by charges. ^^;

I have noticed in recent months they have been picking up a LOT more.

Though even if it isn't gift, they don't seem to be charging VAT on the postage... so, uh, that's nice.

I haven't been hit at all since a year back now and I only use EMS shipping. It's normally valued down and marked as a gift.

Which shops do you use? Downvaluing is pretty much illegal...

It is, but I'm not the one downvaluing :) Big in Japan and Nippon-Yasan mainly. NY downvalue without people asking them.

I almost always use Registered SAL small packet. Except for those recent 5 in a row, I very rarely get customs charges.

AmiAmi do certainly do full price marking on their packages though, so if the package does get caught, then you pay the full fee.
