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...

Customs from Thinkgeek are IIRC still evil, as a rule customs check anything with more than 2 items in it. a friend ordered me 2 thinkgeek teeshirts for my birthday and got stung by customs for a significant amount of money.

I have decided next time I can afford ThinkGeek goodies I will get them delivered to a pet-Merkin and get them repackaged and sent in smaller parcels as gifts.

Good luck if you decide to run the customs gauntlet.... I will drool at the goodies from afar as I'm a skint student.
