You should get an invoice. i got a clutch delivered from the states by Fed Ex.
invoice came about 2 weeks later. but this morning i got a letter from parcelfArce saying customs want £35.05 off me before they will deliver it. the duty for yours should'nt be more than £20?

i think they just think of a number and times it by the day of the week..
(ive the same item imported with different charges on them) Theres a whole guideline on the web somewhere, every item is 'meant' to be charged depending on which catagory it comes under... and there are hundreds of catagories so it seems to rely on what ever the person dealing with it decides it is.
