US Imports? Aug. 11th, 2003 10:09 pm
Anyone ever bought T-shirts from Thinkgeek for UK delivery?
Anyone want anything from there if I were to manage to pull together a bulk order?

I'm trying to figure approx how much the customs charges would be - any ideas, let me know. (Shipping looks like about $3 on a T-shirt, or less, once numbers get up).

To Clarify: I've no intent of trying to dodge customs; I'm trying to find out if customs make this impractical, which it looks like they might - I'll have to try and find out if trade imports are any cheaper as there might be someone who can help there...

The one time I ordered lots of shirts from there was vast amounts of faffage with customs and then with couriers arriving at the office at 8am and refusing to leave the t-shirts without payment for the customs and their 'handling charge', and I think I ended up paying an absolute fortune out - £50 or so - extra for maybe ten tshirts.

Mind that's more than a year ago now, and I might just have been unlucky.
