I've got a grey card through the door yesterday. With a tracking code and a customs charge to be paid. But the one bit of info that would be most useful would the name of the sender. I often thought this in the past. Even when you go on line to check via the post office web site. Just says the tried to deliver. Which i that already :x
Why can't they put who is the sender is :roll: . I'm sure its my 'Groovy' forks :D
Sorry that my post office rant over :lol:

Well after a merry run around. I've got a phone number for customs & Post office 02072392447 and they told me. if under £51 then no charges :D They charged me £8 then the post office added £9 They also told me if the item less then i can claim the £8 back. But little do they know it cost a lot more
So sexy black 'Groovy' forks will go on my black Trimble :D :D pictures to follow

Update on post office & customs charges
According to the sticker on my parcel from USA
Charges are Over £18 from EU or goods person to person (private) as in gift with a value over £36 will be charged So on A $100 forks VAT was £8.97 Royal Snail £8.00. So i paid and collected.
BUT
Parcel Force Worldwide is different. You pay first then collect or get delivered (£12 extra for Saturday)
For $500 Import duty £10.86
VAT £53.29
Parcelforce £8.00
