The FAQ link on the forum description doesn't seem to be working so I thought i'd ask this here.

I'd like to order some stuff from the barfko store and being as i'm 16 and not completly familiar with way online shipping and things work I read something about the order may be held in customs, other people tell me that it doesn't happen in the UK and they just charge you a fee for the VAT or something along those lines.

So if I ordered something would it be held in customs in the UK or delivered straight to me with a VAT charge?

Thanks!

Im in the UK. From my experience its a gamble whether customs will open your package and charge you.

Its happenend to me twice, and both times were for more bulky orders of more than one Cd. So, now when ordering from the US, I never order more than two cds at once, and this seems to work, as the stuff falls right through my door.

Recent Barfko purchases came right here - ID, TDRS, Wazoo.....

So, my advice is go for it, just dont order a load at once!.....

Or, go here of course - http://www.gandsmusic.com - Heartily recommended and superb service.....

Thanks guys I was mainly thinking of ordering some t-shirts which I can't seem to find anywhere else online but that gandsmusic site seems good for FZ and Beefheart CDs.

Thanks for your answers.
