That is NO consolation to a punter caught up in the mess.
So, what you're saying is you got caught for some customs/VAT charges you were trying to dodge and you haven't stopped moaning about it since?





The original purpose of this thread has been fulfilled. Lets not turn it into an assassination attempt.

NOs , you are talking absolute tosh . This was an openly discussed bulk buy on the Forum . As a matter of fact I kept a very dignified silence about it . In the end I had to ask Martin to stop harping on about or I would tell my side of it.

So are you saying the seller should pay YOUR customs charges?

Your implication is that her reason for not posting any more is directly related to this. I think that is unfair, she sold her boat and she continued to post after the debacle was over. I think it would also be fair to say she was warned about the potential pitfalls of bulk buying on forums before she started but chose to put herself through the mill anyway.

As for customs charges on goods imported from outside the EU, unless you have an explicit agreement with a vendor that they will Deliver Duty Paid then you would be niave to expect no customs, VAT and handling fees on the goods.

Martin's stuck his neck on the block a few times to help us out with group buys when most sensible people would keep well out of it. It usually ends up turning round and biting him on the ass, costing him money and getting no thanks for his time and effort.

I think it sucks that people are kicking him when he's down. I've spent plenty of money with him with no problems at all, fair enough if you don't want to risk spending your money with him at the mo but lets remember, he's not some faceless internet fraudster, he's one of us.

Martin's managed to save us (correction you lot) a lot of money using loopholes in the VAT laws, I don't know anyone else who would do that. Same as every other mail order company, you're responsible for your country's taxes and duties, if you get caught out it's your tough titties, don't blame him.

Agree with Martini

i have bought several k's worth of kit from the vendor in question in the past. i was very demanding in what and when i wanted things and i was a happy punter!

Glad JABS has got his issue sorted and fair play to him for doing it in such a manner.

would i buy from them again.... yes..
