Shipping a Laptop from the US
« on: Sep 02, 2014 at 03:03 AM »
Has anyone tried buying a laptop from the US and have it shipped here? How much did the shipping, customs, taxes, etc. cost?

Mine was shipped tru JAC, wrapped in a beach towel, placed in a box. And because it is an electronic, they charge $200(?). . No customs duty.

for sensitive electronics like that i'd rather have someone handcarry it. Shipping it may be too risky. Just me though.

Best to have it hand carried by a relative or friend. Or else, prepare to pay duties or, at least, handling fees of a private courier, such as JAC.

Another way of going at it is to approach a friend pilot or steward ;)

Ship by sea would be cheap but prepare to wait for at least a month.
