Jo Valentine does that sort of thing my friend just came in and she had room in her container so Jo fitted in someone's stuff. It did get hit for import duty though (don't know how much the duty was that had to be paid in relation to the cost of the goods though) and I think the first square metre charge is costly then over that the rate comes down as I remember.



Check them out on the web they are based in Doncaster I think but they do take deliveries and keep it for you until they have a container coming (so I have been told).



I think a number of shipping companies does a similar thing here you just have to work out whether the cost of items, shipping and any tax to be paid is worth it in the end or would it be cheaper to buy it here. Hope that helps.

Then she can loose them like she did ours and if you are really lucky you can pay for insurance which doesnt exist just to make it extra worthwhile sorry to be cynical but truthful.

I think someone does bring in by road which we would look at doing when we replace the items lost by valentines

Hi Jodienjon,



We brought a large patio table and chairs in from the UK in April. You cannot buy the quality of this one here in the TRNC. The table was still packed in it's original box but we had used the chairs a couple of times back home in the UK. They charged us a 100 duty on the table but it was well worth it, as we had bought them half price in the end of season sales last summer.

I thought there was no import duty on 'used' items , so remove the packaging and wrap it in blankets.Please correct me if i am wrong.

re:message6,



Yes you are right Fosterscan, used items can be brought in duty free, but we bought a patio table & 6 chairs new in the UK, the table ( which has a glass top ) was in its own carton, and we felt it prudent to leave it in it's original packing carton . had we taken it out we would have risked the glass being broken.But hey ho the duty of 100 was worth it.



However I would say that if this is the only thing you are thinking of shipping, then you have to wheigh up the costs of shipping + possible duty payable, and compare that with what is available here.

Personally I would look at suppliers here, and save yourself a bundle of cash and a 3 month wait!

Our patio set was part & parcel of a load of other cartons we had shipped from the UK.



Re Bertie message 3: Fortunatly nothing lost with JV, but an expensive lesson learned, check out all the alternatve shippers.
