Korean monitor, UK customs charges? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I'm in the UK too...apart from BCC what other eBay sellers offer to reduce customs charges(I've been looking at AccessoriesWhole, green-sum, and red-cap)? Also who has the best attitude towards customers when it comes to warranty claims?

I just placed an order with BCC and they never sent me an e-mail asking about customs procedures, they also sent the order by EMS which means ParcelForce will charge their ridiculous handling fee, on top of customs charges - and hold the goods at the local depot until it's all paid. mad.gif

My item is currently being held by customs -

Handed over to Customs - GBCVTA - Customs retention reason : Inappropriate invoice

Googling suggests this means customs will hold the goods while they work out what to charge me. Other people's experiences suggest the retention typically lasts a few days. I'm curious, is customs clearance for EMS treated differently to DHL,FedEX, etc?

Well despite the delay, of a few days, caused by the customs retention everything turned out OK in the end. Was a bit worried for a while. thumb.gif
