    Default My order fromm DJTT has cost me a fortune now...

    I ordered a vci-100se overlay and a yellow knob & fader kit which in total came to $90 with shipping, which is approx 57. Now ive just been hammered for import tax at a cost of 18.50 tbh not happy now as all in all its cost me almost 80 for some plastik fookin knobs and a piece of sticky paper....i know its not the djtt stores fault and in now way am i blaming them i just think that customs charge is fucking silly!!! for what ive ordered...oh well rant over, cant wait to get em on monday and transform my vci-100 into summat that i hope will look the dogs bollox

    The customs thing sucks, especially for any commercial goods coming from the USA into the EU.

    I usually have things sent to a mate's house and I have him repackage the item into a nondescript packing box and have it resent as 'personal items' through a parcel service. I frankly don't think I am doing anything illegal because well, the are personal items. I don't earn money from DJing or do it professionally so everything that I order from the states has no commercial value and is not being used for commercial aims in the EU, so the taxman can bite me.

    i dunno how it works over in france, i read up on it on the customs website and it says royal mail/parcel force can charge for opening the parcel, re-packaging it and sealing it and a handling charge as they pay the tax on your behalf then get it back off us by the tune of twice as much i reckon!!!

    yeah the tax thing is super skanky, but once you get that overlay on you'll be happy as a pig in mud... i do hope you ordered the firmware upgrade kit too? You know you need that right?
