Wait until Australian Customs decide to get involved $$$

If it's $500 of value and comes in via Airmail or seamail it won't get hit with Tax. $1000 is the threshold.

If it comes in a container, then that's a completely different story......

Yeah cos the size of the box. I think it needs to be huge before they give you the option.

Could be worth looking at one of those mobs that do the Excess baggage forwarding as well........

Also EMS through the post office over there.


But the size of the package could be a problem.

Contact DHL directly. All our small stuff is sent from our office in Hebei straight to our door in Sydney.

It's worth contacting DHL directly and setting up an account. Talk up your volumes and get their best prices. PM me if you need a contact in there

dave I talked to one of the procurement girls, they usually get a better rate but she cant tell me until they go back to work.

She needs to know exactly where its coming from and the content, pm me if you want to
