Has anyone imported a Gene Berg shifter from the USA. I have been quoted 307 usd delivered. Do you have to ad on import tax etc.
Cheers Al.

Yes, my experience has told me you'll have to pay extra once it arrives.

Yes, I imported one, phone them direct, speak to Al, he’s a very helpful Brit living over there.
I had to pay import tax, but it still worked out cheaper.
If you ask nicely they might put the balue of the item lower on the tag, which is what the tax is based on.

Please could you keep me in the loop with the shifter, potentially in the market for one myself.

I did the same. Dealt with them direct and it still worked out cheaper even with the customs charge.
