Dear valued members,

the good news first: the team kits appear to have arrived on the shores of Japan, with two 16kg boxes full of dhb gear currently sitting in Narita customs. The not so good news: Wiggle shipped with an agent and not - as I had innocently believed - through express mail, leaving me sitting on an additional bill of 90,423yen.

I have paid the "import coordinator" today, so that the gear will be released by customs on Monday and eventually delivered to my house by Tuesday.

The additional costs can be broken down into

- import tax: 23,000yen
- terminal fees: 2,850yen
- custom charges: 11,280 yen
- custom inspection fees: 3,000 yen
- handling charge: 5,000 yen
- shipping: 3,450 yen
- custom charges: 40,900 yen

Roughly translated from here:

> 輸入消費税 : 23000
> ターミナル料金 : 2850
> 通関料 : 11800
> 税関検査料 : 3000
> 取扱料 : 5000 *
> 配送料 : 3450 *
> 関税 : 40900


There are no more funds available from the first collection, as the surplus generated by the generosity of a few members has been used towards a free team kit for our ingenious designer. Needless to mention, an accurate settlement of accounts shall be provided once all procedures will have been concluded.

Hence, I do hope we shall be able to recover the additional fees in a collective effort. With 60 individual orders that's a mere 1,500 yen per capita. And yes, I do have PayPal as of now which should facilitate the transfer. ;)

If you have any other suggestions, I do look forward to hearing them. I will keep everyone updated through this thread. :)

1500 yen, no problem:D

Please tell us your PayPal e-mail address so we can send the funds.

Cheers!

Note Taken

I let the "Minnesota Nice" slip out of me again, but I remember now that even though this is a place with lots of nice people, maybe some one could use that negatively!
Thanks
