Just a quick rant -
Purchased an item on ebay USA - a Symphony II+ headunit that is quite hard to find here in the UK.
Paid $52 for shipping to the UK.
Checking the tracking details online - the parcel arrived in the UK two days after it was sent from the US - fantastic.
To cut a long story short, it arrived in the UK two weeks ago (15th May) - it has only just arrived at the local depo after the status read (Waiting customs clearance & charging)
For the privilege they are charging me £58 customs.
I honestly don't know how they can justify it - especially when I can get stuff delivered from China in a week without any customs.
