Less than $2 on customs commercial invoice with power of attorney signed it doesn't even get checked, however if something happens you only get $2 back.

Duties always hold up a shipment when they aren't paid upfront in my experience.

Not having a go. Its stupid customs over here. You don't pay tax on personal effects according to hmrc. I have learnt something there. As they are my carbs you putting on personal effects isn't lying. Oh well i'll know for next time.

I am just glad I am getting them so I can savour the fantastic work you have done to my carbs

Re: Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

If you guys will just tell me what you want prior, I'll put anything on it, those that have asked have found that out...... I have taken brand new billet engine covers, removed the packaging, smeared grease liberally, and labeled as used parts... Am Here to help.
Just tell me in advance.
But..... The risk is on you, if the assessment is low, and it is damaged or lost, the subsequent compensation is equally low.

Re: Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

I try to fudge the value on international shipments to help the buyer out on taxes. Within reason anyways. I won't put a $10 value on a package that's costing me $80 to ship. Unless they are insured, they are not going to pay you this money if it's lost or damaged anyways. I try to mark as a gift too unless it's for a small amount. Oh and on the description, always put used in front. Which I normally only sell used items anyways...

I had someone message me on ebay the other day telling me that import taxes in Brazil are 100% of the value... wtf.

That's why Sony ship the blueray disc and cases separately into Brazil. They then employ someone to put the two together. All that to get around the import tax

I've had a few bits from the states and have been stung on tax for 2 of them, both were brand new engine covers and I would have rather paid than run the risk of not getting back what they were worth if the worst happened.

How is it for things going into the us, has what I sent you got there yet (hopefully with no charges!!!)

Like I said above, even if the worst happens, you are not getting that value back. Only if you purchase insurance separately.

I often get shipments imported from outside of the US and have never been taxed but have heard of it happening a couple times...

Did a bit of work on the top yoke.



My brake fluid reservoir has been cable tied on since I changed the clip ons so my winter clean up is a great time to make a more permanent fixing. Also cleaned the whole thing up a bit.

Who ever it was asked you to do this had a bloody cheek. What a crafty cunning individual he must be!!!!Or maybe he got sick of being severely back door shafted on parts that cos a pittance your end.
Take an Ohlins shock USA price 550. Same Ohlins unit here is 1275. The list is endless and it sucks!!!
You do take a chance when you devalue the item but in my experience its worth it,there's only so much back door action a chap can take.

How are you taking a chance? What is at risk? I wouldn't ship a box of diamonds with a value of $1, but if you mark the value of an Ohlins as $75 instead of $500, what are you taking a chance on?

When you devalue an item if it gets lost or destroyed you only get the indicated value of the item. So if you've paid 500 for it & devalued it down to 100 that's the value of the claim & the risk you take. The loss would be 400.
