How practical is it to order from a catalog or web site in the United
States?? Is there a huge import ‘duty’ or VAT? For smaller packages,
the United States has 'Global Priority" mail pieces (looks like a big
flat cardboard ‘mailer’) that will ship anything you can get in it for
a flat rate. To UK (Great Britain), the large one is only $9.00USD
and the 1/2 size flat is $4.00USD, both regardless of weight. If you
can get it in the “Flat” it goes for the one rate.
Obviously it would not apply to ‘gas’ or hazardous material, but
tools, files, books and such would be fine.
This will let you check rates and fee’s on both sites.
