    Import taxes on complete from UK?

    Just wondering if anyone's ordered & complete bike from On One or Planet X from the UK & had it shipped to the US. Specifically, did you have to pay some kind of import tax?

    I'm looking at a Planet X cross bike that is spec'd pretty close to what I want for about $400 cheaper than I'd get something similar from the US store.

    I suspect I'd have to pay but does anyone know how that deal works?

    It will be about 30-50 bucks in taxes, they take care of it.

    I ordered one which costed 1400 USD including shipping and I had to pay 38% of 1400 at the customs, so I eventually paid 1400 + 530 = 1930.

    The good news for you is that I don't live in US, but in Albania which even though is in the same continent with UK, it has probabl a much higher import tax than US.
