  • I’ve just had a frameset arrive in the UK from the USA. Marked as a gift and currently with customs. I’ll update as to what charges may come my way....

  • I'm guessing duty and VAT

  • Did they mark any value on it at all?

  • Hope not! Got away with nothing to pay on one frame a couple of years ago but 2 others (serotta and landshark) it was around £80 each

  • Not sure to be honest- knew I missed something!

  • Theyre doing weird things now...same shit happened to me few weeks back, bought an item in Australia and they charging me more than the item cost i said im not gonna pay that and i said send it back, takes almost a month til i got my money....seller is very upset

  • Bollocks. Tracking says custom charges raised. I shall await their letter. Bum.

  • Would I be likely to be charged import fees on a tubeset coming from Russia?

  • Yes

  • Bought a vintage Ritchey frameset in the US last week and import fees and VAT raised the price with about 30%...

  • Anything coming from outside EU gets that VAT after a certain amount...
