Excess charges when buying from europe to the uk
jeff hodge Member
Not happy, new Mac v2 wheel ordered no prob, paid 186 euros, good bargain....thought so, but then UPS asked for an other £50 in taxes i paid because i had to, only to be told 10 minutes late that they had added another week to the delivery time.....not amused.
Be very wary about buying expensive items it can and will cost a fortune,
Was just about to buy a DD upgrade....not now
I am well aware this is not Fanatecs fault but had i noticed this on the checkout page i would have thought twice about buying, i have no doubt this will reflect on there sale to the UK in the coming months
FFS - wake up. You pay VAT on UK imports from the EU and you pay the courier a fee for this. Have you been asleep for the last few months? EU sellers remove the VAT at checkout for UK customers (you noticed this but stupidly thought you'd scored a bargain). It's not EU businesses' responsibility to hand hold UK purchasers - this is the buyers responsibility - i.e. it's your fault that you don't understand this. Nobody else is to blame for your ignorance.
It’s really not that much extra though. First off we’re not paying VAT on the price we pay with Fanatec. So take 19% off of the 199.99 euro price. I’ve just had my charges through for my McLaren V2 and the government charges are the 20% VAT we pay here in the UK anyway. Only extra we’re paying is the £11.50 UPS charge. Not ideal, but hey, we’re no longer in the EU.
Chjeers Aaron for your response ....getting to old.
As for you gary johnson you sound like a cunt
Well you attack Gary but not slapping your self or at least say sorry for jumping into conclusions by your ignorance🤦♂️.
There are a gazillion posts and topics in this forum. A gazillion posts in Fanatecs social media, a gazillion posts in Fanatec's related users groups, a warning in fanatec's website and still you come in here to complain that you have been overcharged. 🤣
I admitted my mistake - recheck my postings on the thread you are alluding to. Plus - what has this got to do with this thread. Stay on topic please. 🤣
In case you didn't notice, I am telling the OP off for calling you a (censored) and not alluding to anything. 🤣
Watch your language, especially after you made a clear mistake.
TBH, I'm more upset that he spelled my name wrong.
