  • Hmmm - what about this though - seems to think VAT already included -so surely I swerve the admin fee too?

  • Edit. I would give it a punt based on what you've just posted.

  • Looks like they have signed up for the IOSS scheme (which only started very recently, so may not have updated their t’s and c’s).
    I would expect zero charges on arrival in the U.K.


  • Presumably, say you wanted a pair of tyres which were (say) £70 each, you would need to order them separately to keep each parcel under £135 total?

  • Yep - all smooth as silk. Tyre just arrived. Think it was 8 days delivery from Italy via Parcel force.

    Shout out to Lordgun. Great place if you need bits that are hard to find now we've messed up everything else. Amazing value, good postage rates and no faff for orders under £135.

  • Had an update from Royal Mail regarding my claim/ investigation. They have changed the parameters from over 30 days to over 90 days!
    Extremely frustrating have submitted my claim from posting on the 5th August in early September.

  • So the parcel i sent at the start of July to Belgium has been returned for the 3rd time, again with no reason. The Post Office in the UK assure me my parcel is all correct and has the correct information. Royal mail website also confirms this. I'm sending it as a gift as I am not a business.
    I just have no idea what to do anymore, prior to January 1st 2021 I had no issues. Some Leavers tell me its not to do with Brexit!! I could punch them in the face, morons.
    Can anyone help me please?

  • Can you try a different company to send it?

  • Condor know what they are doing. Three days from order to EU delivery for some PDW spares.

  • I've started using for anything I'm buying in Europe, mostly since I'm finding sellers over there just will not ship to UK, even if you want to pay extra. Seems they have a warehouse in Germany that you post stuff to, which they either forward directly or you can have it all reboxed into one package. So far all worked well!

  • Useful cheers. Need to replace a rosebikes derailleur hanger as the mounting bolts are well short and have failed to keep the hanger in place, stripping the threads. Hopefully it won’t be too expensive as replacing a small component for a massive outlay isn’t much fun. My fault for having a German bike in brexit Britain i suppose.

  • This. But make sure you choose UPS delivery rather than DHL.

  • Is this worth using for small/low value parcels?

    I’m needing to order about €60 worth of brake bosses from Reset and they want about £30 for shipping and were a bit dubious to whether they’d even get here plus I figure there might be import taxes /charges to pay on top off the shipping.

    I guess using forward2me doesn’t dodge that last but eh?

  • I’ve not paid any import on the stuff I’ve bought so far, in my 3rd shipment from them, could probably have waited and combined as one but thought a bigger package might attract more customs attention!

  • Still managing to get my euro orders over to NI without occurring any fees, if you can middle man it from there!
