£13+ handling charge. Parcelforce are taking the pee
more curiously – your given no other options – they just slap it on…. its not like you can say – prepay the vat on the item (you can when you ship commercially via Drop it hide it lose it)
how ever most folk on here would still take the chance of not having to pay it at all and suck up the 13 quid charge.Posted 4 years agocpSubscriber
but yeah Parcelfarce are thieving barstewards, you payed for couriering, so why are made to pay again?
No, you didn’t pay them for couriering, the supplier payed them for couriering. They didn’t pay them for handling the import duty and tax payment on your behalf and will have stated that in the purchase terms you signed up to when buying.
Seems a reasonable charge to me – there will be a fair amount of admin involved.Posted 4 years agoweeksySubscriber

How can you say that CP? When I have bill for product and P&P specified separately… how is that not paying for the couriering? PF take the piss
So once it leaves customs, who should bring to you ? who should sort out the customs charges ? where should they store the goods ? How should they let you know they have goods ?
Should they do all that for free ?Posted 4 years agoDracSubscriber

You paid P+P but didn’t pay the handling fee that all couriers will charge you for imports if they spot it, part of the cost of buying outside the EU.Posted 4 years agoSandwichSubscriber
I have successfully argued with UPS that the fee is not part of any contract with me in the past. The contract is with the supplier and there was no contract between me and UPS.
£15 of fees gone in a flash, levied on £25 of software on DVD!
Something to do with a party to an agreement being unable to sign you up to contract with a third party.Posted 4 years ago
