Has anyone ever shipped a rod from USA and how much does it cost?
Don’t forget the import duty.
if you can, get a mate in the us to buy it and mail it to you as a present. no tax then.
for a rod unless you can only get it in the states I suggest not botherin. it’s a pain in the Rs if you get a brake etc and want to claim on warranty.
I’ve never been charged.Duty and Tax is chargeable on gifts if the value is above £130.
All shippers everywhere charge a disbursement fee for collecting Duty and Tax, its not just a UK thing.
In some countries they even make a charge for each page of every form they use to complete the collection!!
I’ve never been charged.
Assuming your statement refers to importing post Brexit and you didnt pay tax and disbursements in the country of dispatch could you say;
What was the value of the item?
Who was the carrier?
Where was it dispatched from?
When was it sent to you?
Your answers to those 4 questions could save £s to anyone wishing import goods or tackle.
