Default Any European forumite ordered from America?

Did anyone from Europe, specifically from the UK, order any shisha tobacoo from America? If yes, what was your experience. The tobacoo available in UK is way overpriced, Al Faker is equivalant to 26 Dollars, and the choice is limited. I despereatly want to order all my supplies from America, despite the hefty delivery cost.

hi
im from germany and i already ordered from the usa. if you want to buy al fakher, take www.alfakheronline.com, thats the cheapest! if you want to order other tobacco, do it at www.mnhookah.com, they are very nice.
i dont know how the british customs work, but the germans are very strict ... maybe you have to pay taxes (here about 100% of the offers worth + german tobacco taxes)
then it isnt so expedient (price) ...
ask DMC he's from london and knows more about it (i think)

i order 90% of my tobacco from the united states and never had any problems. i place most of the orders with mnhookah because they always write gift on the package and declare a lower value, so you won`t get screwed by customs.

I'm in Lithuania and I order stuff from the US all the time with no problem. I also get people to send me stuff from Turkey, Iran and various Arab countries when I can and I never had any trouble.

I'm from Manchester mate, where abouts in the UK are you from? I've ordered a 5 premium flavour package with some lemonwood coal from alfakheronline a few days ago, and i've made 2 orders from hookahcompany dot com. The first was a KM Blue caravan (arrived nice packaging with Eskandarani apple and a Big head etc...too bad i smashed the vase, was gutted), and the one im waitin for is the Blue KM Mash'al with a Blue KM hose and small funnel bowl. What i've noticed is if you order enough, and work it out, the shipping isnt expensive at all, its just if your ordering say one or two 250g tubs or something, btw if you're after anything just gimmie a PM i got a ton of stuff at home im willing to trade/sell that i've got from the middle-east.

Regards

Salam

Hey, I am from London. I placed a order from Hookahcompany recently, hope the customs people don't get me! I got the small phunnel, mod, one Tangiers and one laylinia, as well as lots of samplers. This is kinda like a test run, if it works, I will order alot more.

Wa'salam

if the package is too big, the customs will check it ...
thats the problem. if you order just about 500g of tobacco they wont open the package.

So what happens when they get seized? Do you get charged tax or something? If so how much?

if the german customs seizes the tobacco you have to pay about 100% of the packets worth and the tobacco taxes
