Default importcost USA-Europe(Belgium)

Hi guys, i'm planning on buying my first KM hookah.
But I was doing some research about the shipping costs and such. and at first I stumbled upon the regular things like the shipping costs itself and I convinced my friend to join in and try some of al fakher and starbuzz shishas and vortex bowl so that we could split the ship costs. But then, as I looked further, I came across something called custom costs or something like that and I read stories about ppl buying from sites like ebay and such and from the USA in general that when al their extra costs were added it was always nearly 50-60% of the purchase price. I fell right off my chair.
Can someone give me some more info about the extra costs that come along with orders that are transatlantic.

TY in advance
Ive Belgium Antwerp

It's gonna cost you a lot. why not try finding vendors nearer for example the UK
quick google search yielded this http://www.hookahshop.co.uk/hookah-b...oon-c-276.html
There's also a few holland/belgium based shop selling hookahs of equal quality if you look for em

You've got good german sites as well: there are 5 or 6 models of KM on sale, at very good prices indeed at Shisha-net.de
Shipping will only be 17,99 for up to 5 kg, anywhere within the EU. And pipes are 55 or 59 depending on models, that is a very good offer I believe. On the Hookah you save a minimum of 34 Euros, and the shipping cost is unbeatable...

There is someone on Marktplaats, based in Delft who sells KM hookahs:

http://verzamelen.marktplaats.nl/roo...fta_ind=3&fs=1

You should try to e-mail her and ask if she ships to Belgium.

Good luck!

I dont know about Europe but in Australia we have very bad Customs tax on tobacco its about $320 tax on 1kg of tobacco which applies to Nargile tobacco aswell. Also the shipping rates from the US are just outrageous I try to get Express EMS USPS shipping 5 days as it gives customs less of a chance to process your delivery and the shipping is anywhere between $90 - $150 US. Which is crazy since what your ordering cost about that much.
