WTH? Personal costly experience with shipping an order from UK to EU

A section dedicated to non Mini related conversations that some members may find disturbing, worrying or offensive. If you are likely to be troubled by non Classic car related content, I would suggest you avoid!

Straightforward solution, if your parts supplier is organised, following 4 years of advance notice.

"EU Brexit Update

January 2021

Brexit? No problem!

The transition period has come to an end and the UK has officially left the EU. We want to assure you that it will be business as usual here and our ability to ship orders directly to you will not be affected. We have been exporting car parts to almost every country worldwide for nearly 40 years and will continue to do so.

The terms of trade between the UK and EU changed on January 1st, 2021.

We now provide a DAP (Delivered at Place) door to door service.
All prices shown on our website exclude UK VAT, which we no longer charge to EU customers.
EU VAT (based on the country of destination) is not included in our prices and is payable prior to delivery, plus a brokerage fee * and duty ** (if applicable).
Our carrier will collect these charges - a link will be sent requesting payment prior to delivery.
The shipping charge displayed does not include these charges.
Our carrier will handle the customs formalities and deliver your order directly to you.
A commercial invoice will be included with your order.
EU businesses will need to provide us with an EORI number.

* A brokerage fee is calculated and charged by the carrier 'per consignment' upon customs entry.
** Duty is applicable to items that originate from outside of the UK / EU."
