    Wanted: Someone to help me import from the US

    As the subject says, I'm looking for someone willing to help me import a few (Two, to be exact) computer items from the US (Yaaay, low prices. And products unavailible here). I recall in a thread a while back, a US member offered to do this (A few UK members were lamenting the comparatively high prices), that person perhaps?

    While I do have US relatives, one of the items I'm looking to buy is a Samsung harddrive (SP1604N - unavailible here), and I doubt they would package it properly. I'd like it to arrive in one piece.

    Any takers? I'll shine your shoes!

    Thanks

    Dont forget the possible import tax (works about about 20% after the VAT and charge for them charging the VAT ( ) gets added.

    Though you may not get hit.

    If you mark it as gift and put the value as under £30 then it wont get charged unless they think you are taking the mick and they realise its worth more. In that case they will just make up some low figure.

    I am well aware of import duty, and even with that, it's cheaper to import. And even if it's not, the two items (Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer & Samsung SP1604N) aren't availible here anyway, rendering cost rather moot.

    Any takers?

    Hmmm, I might be able to help out. I'm on vacation right now but I'll be back in a few days. Message me with the details and I'll look into it. Okay?

    Hope I can help.
