Future New York trip!

ViruZ_HUN
 Share


Hello!

 

My mom just told me that we are going to New York after september this year!. And as you know i may buy a computer there if everything goes fine.

I will buy everything in New York(America) Except the Case becuze it will take to much space so i get it in sweden instead. I was thinking about to put all PC parts inside the Bag, and fully safe, and i will make the Bag almost "Unopenable" for max safety.

 

SO my question is:

 

Do someone know a fysical store around New York where i can get all parts in?

 

and

 

WHen they will skan a bag full of PC parts, Will the scanner scan the parts as something dangerous?. or is it seen outside the bag that it is just PC parts?

 

 

( i want to do this becuze its almost half the price then here in sweden and also we are tripping to New York about the time i want/will get the PC, so why not?)

When you go there you have to pack everything in your check-in baggage.

Also won't the TAX officers pull you to the sides when you get back to Sweden?

To answer your store question, I've bought a few items from the BH store (http://www.bhphotovideo.com) in Manhattan and there's a Microcenter in Bronx I think. But, of course, like in most cases, buying online is generally cheaper.

Just buy the stuff in your own country. It always works better that way unless you're buying something like a laptop, which is durable and easy to carry.

 

What are you going to do if something is broken (like DOA)?

What are you going to do if it breaks on the plane or in the scanner or something?

What are you going to do if your airline loses your bag?

 

Besides, it's tax avoidance, ethics are questionable.

I think Microcenter is in New York. They often have great deals. I picked up a 4770k for $230 (168 eur) because of them

Isn't frozencpu.com also based in New York?

You have to declare goods you import in the EU if it is over 430€ / 4300SEK and pay taxes on import (25%) + duty on some items.

If you don't declare goods and you get caught, you might have to pay the taxes at least twice (i.e. 50% or more) or if it is over a certain value (I thin 1000€)  you will have to go to court ;) (i.e. not worth it)

Micro Center, fuck yeah.

 

I am in NY, and I prefer the one in Long Island. Good service, good stock.

They will probably open the bag but they probably won't confiscate anything.

 

But if the total cost is over a certin amount (I think its $1000) you will probably need to pay taxes

To ship over the computer hardware internationally will really eat your budget.

There should be no problem on the american side of things and there is absolutely no reason to make your bag impossible to open, that does nothing but add to suspicion. Your problem is when you get back to Sweden. If the tax officers at the Swedish airport pulls you aside and asks you to open your bag you will promptly be asked to pay 25% in VAT and up to 20% in import tax, essentially making buying parts in USA nothing but an extra hassle.

I wouldn't try. They are very paranoid. They might fear a bomb in the psu or a knife in the gpu. It is up to you. You can call them and ask about the rules and use that information.

Don't buy anything in the electronics stores around Time Square. Most of those live off ripping off turists.

 

Also be carefull. If you import for more than around 300€ you can be taken aside by the Swedish customes they force you to pay. You will have to pay a fee, the full retail tax on those items, the import tax, and if you don't declare the items also a big fine.

The thing is, you will need to pay tax on it, basically "Sweden needs to make money from your ventures in the U.S."

Basically you will need to declare your products right?

Please don't spread false information, there is absolutely nothing standing in the way of taking computer hardware with you on a plane.
