Swedish experiences?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi!
If there's anyone here from Sweden who have bought directly from CaseLabs, please share your experience. What shipping method did you opt for, what is the most commonly used? Shipping times? How much was added for customs/tax? (you can select from several methods but there's no indication of different shipping times or other things to evaluate the cost).
Trying to figure out what the end cost I must save up to might be to see if it's even possible or not (I probably can save up to the case I want. Shipping, unfortunately, might break the dream though and the unknown tax/customs addition might be the nail in the coffin, but I'll keep hoping and dreamings and see what can be done).

Pretty sure I chose the cheapest usps option with tracking.
About the extras, without the exact numbers in my head I'm pretty sure it was at least 25%, maybe even more
Also pretty sure that the 25% extra is added on the total amount, including the shipping cost

Yeah, I guess the 25% moms (VAT) is unavoidable, not sure if there's any customs duty on a computer case though? Is the moms on just the case or is it on the combined case/shipping cost?

Pretty sure it was on the combined price, customs I don't remember actually, could probably check it for you if you really want to know

Ugh, so for a SM8 I'm looking at 7k SEK assuming there's no toll duty (shipping and tax doubling the cost of the case itself). Guess I need to put those dreams on ice for a bit longer.

Don't let your dreams be dreams.. Just do it!

You can find out what the duty will be in advance using DutyCalculator.com - a useful site when shopping abroad. Remember that VAT is a Goods and Services tax and shipping is classified as a Service so is VATable. The import duty will be very low - it is really just a case of affording the VAT.

I was good with the case cost, shipping was doable, I think the VAT/customs is what breaks it for me. Using that guide it's $512 case, $144 shipping, $39 duty and $171 VAT. Not impossible, but a pretty hard stretch considering I live on a minimal disability pension (Most of my computer builds have been achieved mainly through donations). But hey, if it's worth fighting for it's worth waiting for, just have to dream a little longer and hope for no more medical costs popping up.
I hope no one takes this post as complaining about the price, it's not! I firmly believe it will be worth every cent in the end and that these cases might not be for everyone, but hey, it's a sweet dream to dream and it COULD happen. smile.gif

Thanks for the link @DanielCoffey, very helpful!

I looked at their European distributor in Germany and it was slightly cheaper (they offer free shipping). Not sure how shopusa could be cheaper as you'd still have to pay tax/customs and shipping PLUS a charge for their service?
