Customs/handling billing

Recommended Posts

Anyone else receive a Customs/handling billing after receiving their wingsuit from Birdman?
I got a bill today from UPS international, in the amount of 60.00 for Customs Clearance? Never rec'd anything like this before on a skydiving-related article.

Thx, I found it on the Birdman site after someone sent a PM. If I had my order sheet handy, I'd probably find it there, too.
I frequently get Customs billings for photo gear, yet
they always put the shipper or description on them. This came with nothing on the billing.
Anyway, thx for the answer, I should have looked on the Birdman website first.

Mine was about the same and a bit of a surprise since I went for the "all-inclusive" shipping option.



You should contact the dealer you went thru and get this corrected. All inclusive means any customs fee's are covered.
