    Whoa, lucky!


    On advice from a PostNL lady, I picked up the package and intended to contest the charges. Turned out it wasn't a mistake on the side of PostNL though. For some reason, the package which contains only a pirate ship has a declared value of 418,50$+19,98GBP shipping :blink:

    Guess I'll be emailing [email protected] next.


    Also, this ship is **heavy**, I thought it would fit in my backpack, with the top sticking out .... It did not fit in the backpack. My arms are now very tired :lol:


    Glad you have the package! Sucks there's some more administration and such involved in it.

    I've still yet to receive my packages, still no extra fees but I'm not in the 'safe zone' until I have the packages in my hands 😛

  2. Ok. So appearantly my payment info has been waiting for me in the PostNL app. I had not thought to check here, other tracking info didn't show something was waiting.

    But nevermind that! I could pay for import fees on 1 package, the 2nd is being delivered to the postoffice nearby.

    So far it seems to only be 9,- a package for handling fees by PostNL. 

    Based on past experiences I think it stays at this... o.o


    We'll see tomorrow!

    It's available for collection now ... with another bill of 110€

    I'll be on the phone with PostNL on monday I guess :blink:


    Did you get some information today? I'm currently waiting for both my packages being evaulated / processed by the customs department.

    If I receive a payment notice I'm hoping it will be for both packages q.q

  4. Not to be an arse, but shouldn't this thread be for bones 5? is it time for an enthusiasm bones 6 one so we can keep the bones 5 info seperated? EU is still in the delivery part 😉

    One of my boxes was delivered (in the Netherlands) on the 2nd of September, after arriving at customs on the 20th of August. The other package (the ship) is still at customs according to the tracking 😞

    PostNL shows nothing when I enter the tracking code, their customer service can't help me either. I'm a bit worried that this is because the complete cost was declared on one box, meaning the other box has no associated cost. I paid VAT on the whole amount of my order when I received the main box.


    Does the 17track website show you more information?

  6. My order has just received shipping! Wave 4, quite a large order, EU.

    Quite happy on this, now to see how much the fees are going to be.


    For the communication, I think they were trying to bring positive news so went on the higher numbers to report (nearing 50%! could have been 39% for example, now they're "over 50%" many weeks later which seems weird).


    edit: it's 2 boxes! no ships ordered. Being dlivered through parcelforce

    Hi everyone. I'm interested in this but UK based. I wondered about doing this as a figure of 8. So a box goes around the UK. A box goes around the EU. Then they are 'swapped'. So there's only two cross border (hoy...) mailings. 


    The way I see it, the less it has to cross the (tiny bit of) ocean to get to UK and back, the better.

    At the borders it's unpredictable, and can result in hefty payments required if they deem it neccessary.

    A box is currently in the UK. It could go from there through the UK participants, then on to the mainland, not returning to the UK in the end.

    I see a future where it'll calm down more and be more easily shipped there, but currently the border patrol is covered in work and being watched by the entire world, so they want to do it right.


    At least that's how I see it 🙂

  8. "luckily" we're still waiting on Bones5 delivery so we can participate in this, but getting that box to the mainland would be such a good thing so we can start it off properly after.

    That would mean it should not end in UK at this point in time, and most likely would have a very hard time passing through UK.


    If there's more UK folks looking to join this round, I'd suggest they go at the start before the box leaves to the main lands.


    But now, how do we get the box this way? who can tell us more about this, can someone at the borders be called or anything like it?

    Do we have a forumite who works at the borders? Is any UK resident going soon to the main lands who can bring this in his suitcase? 😛 

  9. I help myself with chatting in the discord and getting my own information from ReaperHQ ZombieCo (Reaper UK), but I would very very much appreciate an official update from here.
    We know they're a smaller group, and we know they might have their struggles, like getting enough shippers to accept their packages.

    But if we are not updated, we're trying to fill in the blanks ourselves with guesses.

    I'd much prefer to know the actual state. Would it be possible to get like a weekly update from the UK guys stating how many they shipped last week, possibly some issue they're tackling or have tackled, and what wave they're in?


    I'm 100% sure this would be appreciated and help ease the minds of many EU/UK backers.

  10. I'm still waiting in wave 4. Lack of information is anoying, but not worrying.

    I'd like a newer update then 2 weeks ago.

    I've asked the UK Reaper guys straight up for an update on their facebook page, and Ron said on Discord since friday he's been pestering Ron for an update and he said he would write one. However, still waiting 🙂

  11. that's what I was going to say ye. At least Gmail has made a policy where you can add a dot to your E-mailaddress, or +something at the end, before the @.

    I use my E-mailadres [email protected] (not my real one) in multiple ways, like [email protected], [email protected], etc.

    Should work with [email protected] aswell 🙂


    Edit: and if all else fails you can always create an alias for your E-mail, most hosting providers provide that option.
