View Full Version : UK shipping

Hi to everyone on the forum.


I received my first order to the UK a couple of weeks ago - I

got it shipped by Airmail, rather than Fed-Ex. when it arrived, I had to pay customs duties on it (it was PI and

AE). Customs came to about 17 dollars.

I didnt like the Airmail thing, so i am going to try Fed-Ex next time - I

wondered if others ordering in the UK were getting hit by customs when they ordered by Fed-Ex or by Airmail?

Also, how long does it normally take to reach the UK if it\'s Fed-Ex\'d?

I was never hit by

customs charges with regular mail, I\'ve used FedEx twice and had to pay customs £20 one of those times.


took around 3-4 days by FedEx, not spectacular. I got a delivery by regular mail in 5 days, and considering FedEx

costs more than 3x as much...

so it seems

that the customs charges are pretty much random. i\'m not too keen on regular mail because i live in a small place

and the local postoffice and postman are kind of nosey - last time, i got a card through the door saying that there

was a package waiting at the p/office for customs duties. i collected it, and the staff all got very excited and had

a big discussion about it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

when they did charge you customs

duties on the FedEx delivery, did the delivery guy just collect the money at the door when he dropped the package

No, I got a letter

about a week after the delivery.

I think FedEx is probably the best option in your situation, but the cost does

sting a bit.

i\'ll go for

FedEx then - I am just starting out with pheromones really, so I am still experimenting, so I\'ll make it a big

order with FedEx to make it worth it. There are lots more products I want to try

Thats what I did, good

luck with your products /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

ordering (by Fed-Ex) on friday, I actually received my order in the UK today (Monday). That\'s an awesome service

from Bruce and FedEx. I know that an order placed on friday wouldn\'t even have been sent by now from most other

companies. Thanks again Bruce.
