Hi there! Long time no see!
I have a few questions about the changes after Brexit.

What are the problems for you with shipping from the EU?
What are the additional costs for you?
Any tips on how to ship orders to make it the cheapest for you?

Thanks a lot guys and Happy New Year to everyone. smile

Not sure this will help, but I have been buying some parts from the UK and shipping into Bulgaria as a private individual. I know you are looking at the other way around, but it SHOULD be the same process!!!

The main thing that I needed was an EORI number. This is for the EU and the UK. You get the number for free from your local customs office. This is your permanent personal number that you use every time.
I think, that below a value of 150 euro's this is not needed, but over this amount it is.

I have had several different experiences.
Sometimes I have not been charged any import duty. Other times I have.

In theory the supplier should not charge the VAT, but some do!!!
If the VAT is not charged the duty usually works out about the same amount so in effect there is no additional cost than there was before Brexit.

The paperwork has been sorted out by the courier in all cases (Or the post office). They do have a nominal charge for this.

It does take longer for deliveries but its not bad.

I do try to buy only from the EU, but its now quite easy with the EORI number to buy from the UK.

I hope this helps a little.

I've given up buying from the UK... even a snail mail tracked letter can take three weeks to get here, all but the first and last of which it spends being ignored in customs.

Sending stuff to the UK tends to land the recipient with a customs/vat/service charge, and the same for stuff arriving chez Barnacle... it's easier, faster, and cheaper to get stuff from China than from the UK.

I'm currently looking into whether the German post has a customs declaration form so I can send small items as gifts...

It's a problem Mariusz which is difficult to get around other then friends bringing parts in or items being held until I visit Europe, import duty, handlers fee and the timescale it takes to receive items after they’ve passed through customs means for me I have no idea when parts are going to arrive like the lips I purchased in December, tracking only allows me to see when they've left meaning it's not possible to track the items in the UK, Brexshit in truth is a shit show!

I've bought quite a few parts for another car I have (Lancia Fulvia) from a company in France and there haven't been any issues, with deliveries still taking less than a week, and as little as a couple of days. Anything below €140 (I think) doesn't incur any import duties or VAT so actually works out well because there is no VAT on the French side either. Above that there is VAT and duty to pay, the courier contacts me when they receive the parcel and as long as it is paid the item gets delivered. With a few small items it is a balance between having multiple shipments with associated cost and keeping each order below the threshold or paying less for shipping. Expensive items don't give that choice.
