buying from Icarus in NZ Can't Post

I'm about to have a new canopy sent to CA from Icarus in NZ. Does anyone know what, if any, customs duties I'll have to pay? I asked both the Icarus dealer and Icarus themselves and they told me they didn't know if I'd have to pay or not.

We got a bunch of canopies from them and the duty came in a separate bill from FEDEX. It wasn't much at all.....like twenty or so per canopy.

It wasn't a dealbreaker that's for sure.

I ordered a stock canopy from (I believe NZ) thru Chutingstar. It showed up about 2 weeks later.

No additional bills. Wink

In your case, I think chuting star may have just included the tariff cost in their retail price. I just checked their website and they are asking $175 more than what I'm paying.

Providing the required Internal Transaction Number (ITN) on the customs declaration form before mailing items with a value of more than $2,500, unless exempt under Census Bureau regulations. Ensure the ITN or exemption legend is clearly indicated on the customs declaration PS Form 2976-A in block 11.

The abouve is the really , really short version!

Iv'e been shipping stuff both ways on e-bay from Russia, Iv'e been told time and time again, inbound,...Don't worry, outbound worry when stuff starts to approach 500 us. You should not have any issues reciving a new canopy (CONGATULATIONS!!) if it is valued at 2,500.00 or less U.S..

+1 on that

Very good customer service (I knew status of my canopy all the way through production/purchase/shipping). Got the canopy week or two earlier than predicted.
Small customs fee, bigger than in USA, but nothing major. Thanx NZ Icarus Smile
