Forward Shipping from US to Germany - Experience?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everybody,

 

I am thinking about buying some tech stuff online in the US, because even with full import taxes I can save up to 20%.

 

But the problem is, that most online stores don't ship overseas, so I looked at forward shipping companies like the following:

https://www.shipito.com/en/

https://www.parcl.com/

etc. the list goes on.

 

Has somebody experience with those kind of offers?

 

Thanks in advance,

Caspar

Did you summed off all the cost and calculated the taxes based on the "total cost" (product + shipping + forwarder fee)?

19% import tax + tariff

Shipping cost (depending on size and weight but calculate $20 and up)

forwarder fee

DHL fee (can be avoided)

 

In the end cost are the same but you give up consumer rights and comfort.

Yes, I have. I was kinda surprised to see it actually works out.

 

For Electronics the tariffs are 0%, so only the 19% import tax and shipping costs apply.

 

When calculating I always added 100 USD for shipping and forwarding fee.
