Just to make buyers aware. When buying items from overseas (in our case it was USA) we ordered an item which was over £600 plus postage. When Parcelforce tried to deliver I got a note through the door telling me I had Customs and Import Duty to pay BEFORE I could have the item which I had already paid for.
The Customs and Import Duty was £110, which when you have already paid a lot for an item, comes as a bit of a kick in the teeth. I feel that E-bay should make buyers aware of this situation, however they do not, so I thought I would like to pass this information on to fellow buyers to protect them against being stung like this.
