He said 80 pounds/kg. If you want 100 250g tins, divide that by 4 tins/kilo and that's 25 kg. So take 25 * 80 and that is 2000 pounds in duties alone.

It all depends on what your closed airport is, and how the package is coming in, i know all my stuff goes through heathrow and is really easy to get through, but i heard its harder up north

You might have mis understood, its 80 PER KILO and he wants 25 kilos that gets caught it would be 2000/$3500 in duty alone

Nah if it did that i wouldnt recive my parcel the day after it lands in the UK


Because going to coventry and back would take longer then 12hrs if you include sorting.

Also if everything went through heathrow it would be a back log of items, as so much passes through they as it is, it goes to the local international airports and then goes to the national hub and then the local depos and then delivery i think, but if someone works for a delivery company here it would be good to hear how it truely works

2000 is a bit too much for me to risk if there is no other way i might aswell leave it.
