Hi dh58 which Sales Rep from Tirerack did you get the quote from?

Got a quote from Tucker back in November and he was saying they no longer ship Michelins to AUS. Only brands they can do are Goodyear, Dunlop, Sumitomo and Kumho.

Add GST to that and it's similar to the price from Vans?

Hey guys,

I received a quote for the shipping for 1 pallet of car parts (M3 rear end) and was wondering if anyone could shed light on the following. This is the Australia freight quote.

Quote:
Port Charge AUD 85.00 per cbm (or part thereof)
Terminal Handling AUD 25.00 per cbm (or part thereof)
Import Document Fee AUD 55.00
Delivery Order AUD 60.00
Sea Cargo AUD 20.00
FCMR AUD 35.00
Customs Clearance AUD 125.00
Electronic Entry Fee AUD 70.00 (Govt Fee)

Providing standard vehicle for delivery, the cost is AUD 75.00 plus 11.5% fuel surcharge.
All up it's at AUD$550 + GST without taking into account if my package is over 1cbm. FYI the UK portion of it is about GBP215 (~AUD$330). All up probably looking at around $1000 shipped as long as I don't have to pay any additional GST/customs fees.

As the value of the goods is less than $1000 (I have it delcared it GBP450), I'm assuming I shouldn't be stung with any extra GST but I'm still a little confused about it all.

Is there any way to avoid those fees at all? i.e. pick up from port rather than door to door etc

Alex

Just making a Statment for all sydney sider.
Why is everyone buying tires from the US? Just doing some search on what tyres I should put on my Enkei RS05RR (soon to come). Ive opted for some Michelin Pilot Super Sport
225/40/18 fronts. Tire Rack quoted me $424 X2 and shipping was $209.3 Total $633.03us That also excludes fitting.
Tempe Tyres have the same tyres @ $300 each and fitted, wouldnt we all think this is a no brainer. They also do interstate shipping.
I understand the manufacture may play a factor on price. but Tempe are pretty good

Anyone else on here use them too?

You're lucky then mate. Every tyre shop in Brisbane that I've enquired with wants over $700/corner for PSS.

THAT is why people buy from O/S...

Anyone shipped stuff through hopshopgo over 1k? I bought a new DME for ~1200 which came in over the Australian $1000 threshhold and I knew I would have had the possibility of paying GST, which I'm fine with.

But hopshopgo go ahead themselves and charge you for the customs tax and add $50 for their brokerage fee and say they will handle it with customs. My package came with no receipt from customs/DHL to say any of this has been paid.

I just sent a message to them asking for a scan of the receipt etc to make sure its actually paid, I would rather our country have the cash than them.
