    hi,I bought a test pressing from the states I was about $114 today however I have received a card from the postie claiming they can't deliver as there is a customs charge of£24.25 and the royal mail wants a £8 handling fee as well,is this right I thought there was a certain limit?

    Thanks for your reply but I thought it was excessive.

    Sounds about right, the husband bought a pair of Joy Division DMs for a bit more than that price, customs and handling charges were nearly £40

    I just picked the test pressing up and I got it wrong I only had to pay £24.25 in total so not too bad.
