WaterField Designs ships to international countries, however their FedEx International rates are rather expensive.

That’s how BundleBox competitive rates can help international customers get their cases via a fully tracked and safe experience.  BundleBox delivers to 200 international countries in 2-5 business days with FedEx.  Not to mention the fact that the repack service might save additional dimensional weight and reduce the shipping rates even further.  Moreover, BundleBox allows to prepay import taxes to the EU – and this is another point of convenience BundleBox can help with.

IMPORT DUTY AND VAT TAXES
This iPad case (Shoulder bag in plastic) has an import duty rate of 9.7% and import VAT rate of 20% to the UK.  Therefore our estimate of a total landed cost for such a bag is £75.00.  If this seems a little expensive, we recommend having a look at those iPhone Smart Cases, or the iPod Gear Pouches.  Calculate your total landed cost with BundleBox here.

SHIPMENT OF THE DAY
We have shipped today parts for a Mustang 2005 GT, an oil filter, an alternator, a power wire and some exhaust hangers.  And more:  headlights and performance brakes.  Americanmuscle.com is a great resource as they are well established as one of the best, most reliable online aftermarket retailers in the business.

However, neither do Americanmuscle.com ship outside of the USA and Canada nor they accept any international credit card, so if you need to buy anything from them as an international user, you might want to check out our Personal Shopper BuyForMe service.

IMPORT PARTS FOR MUSTANG FROM THE USA
The retailers and websites are many, and sometimes the parts required to complete the restoration job are not available from the same source.  Therefore it makes sense to have all your parts consolidated at the BundleBox address before shipping to the final destination.   The main advantages of consolidation are:  1) saving on shipping rates and 2) getting a more convenient delivery, as all parts will deliver at the same time.

IMPORT DUTY AND VAT TAXES
Import duty and VAT taxes are calculated on the total value of the shipment.  Tuning and performance parts from the USA are way cheaper than anywhere else, therefore import taxes get somewhat less “taxing”.  The import duty rate for brakes into the EU is rated 4.5%, and the import VAT to Germany is 19%.

Calculate here your total landed cost with BundleBox.
