  1. i had that for Bones 1. The order was split up in 2 boxes but both boxes were labeled for the full pledge amount. Luckily at the time Reaper gave the order a basic Vampire value of $100 instead of the real pledge total. You're right; both the packages had the same label attached to it, saying they contain 846.23$ . I told the guy on the phone that they were for 1 invoice, so I hope they keep that into account :( W00t,got my packages with the correct customs this time! :) Did take a while for Belgian post to process it, but it's finally done.
  2. So you win after all :) At least it seems we do have the same problem - with bones 1, SDE, myth, wrath of kings, arcadia quest and at least SDE2 still incoming, my miniature collection is rapidly growing. Too bad the unpainted ones are the general population of them, outnumbering the painted ones 50 to 1? :P

  4. Did call bpost - belgian post - and was able to request a recalculation - did note to the other person on the line that those were in fact 2 boxes for 1 invoice. Administrative costs are 30€ in Belgium, so that's 60€ for both packages. Still, 350€ on 920€ (actual order and shipping added) is still steep - that would be 193€ VAT (21% in Belgium) My guess is that they calculated the VAT on the second package for my whole order, seeing that it's 222,62€ (192,62+30) fee for the small box, and 194,12€ (164,12+30) for the big box. I'll know the result in about 2 weeks - 1 day for the recalculation, the rest for some international controlling mechanism afaik.
  5. I do not know the details of your local system, But you should be able to discuss with this somebody, I assume. There should be, but currently I have no idea who or where that person is :) First things first, I'll go to the post-office tomorrow to see if I can get the receipts, and hopefully a way to solve this.
  6. Damn, I'm seriously not happy. I can go pick up my bones at the local post, but I also know what I have to pay to get them. 416,74€ on an order of 846$ + 182.55$ shipping! It's like they calculated VAT for the whole kickstarter for both my boxes! Anyone knows if it's possible to fight this? And how? Country : Belgium (our VAT should be 21%). I haven't seen the details of the bill yet, so this is guessing, but man...
  7. <Hellboy voice> : "Oh, crap!" @Boogie - we'll have to compare customs charges and delivery speed Ok, let's race :) The heavy package : Location : Belgium ; Date : 02/27/2015 ; Activity : Package cleared by foreign customs office The other package : Location : Belgium ; Date : 02/26/2015 ; Activity : Package arrived at foreign customs office
  8. WOW! Where do you live again?? My guess : Europe This is why most kickstarters are now trying to send from within Europe - to cancel out customs for the European backers. I just used a import duty calculator, and if everything is declared correctly on my packages, I'm facing the following fees : Duty : €42.54 VAT : €199 + the handling cost. I'm afraid tho, because there are 2 packages coming my way, that I'll be paying the handling cost twice + twice the rounding errors
  9. Hurray for Belgian punctuality! While a Dutch wave1 backer has his package, mine only entered customs yesterday? At least I got an update from UPS (2 updates on 1 box!) One of my boxes seem to be on an enternal journey (full shipment progress): Location - Date - Activity Belgium - 02/26/2015 - Package arrived at foreign customs office Belgium - 02/26/2015 - Package arrived at international carrier Belgium - 02/21/2015 - Package departed international carrier facility Belgium - 02/19/2015 - Shipment Acceptance at international carrier Bonesville - 02/18/2015 - Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations (Shipment notification : 02/13/2015) The other package that was sent at the same time, is still departing the international carrier facility, so I assume that one's lost on its eternal journey :) I'm a bit clueless about what's happening with my bones - 5 days between departing and arriving - and according to the location, both should be in Belgium... I can drive from one end of Belgium to the other in less then a day! :P
  10. I don't think they'll skip customs for me, with 2 boxes coming my way :) Probably not the largest order, but I hope an honorable mention with 36.9 LBS (29.6 LBS + 7.3 LBS) coming my way. I did order some of the large mini's for friends as well, so that could explain it (a little bit)
  11. Location : Belgium Date : 02/21/2015 Local Time : 12:55 A.M. Activity : Package departed international carrier facility Late update, and already mentioned in other replies. Now the main questions are: where to and why did the bones depart the international carrier facility. Was Khanjira looking for a real Belgian beer; or was one of the Maashafs hungry for some chocolate?
  12. Location : Belgium Date : 02/19/2015 Local Time : 3:25 P.M. Activity : Shipment Acceptance at international carrier It seems they have warped my boxes (29.6 and 7.3 lbs) right past the atlantic and the uk, and they landed somewhere in Belgium (nice aim! :) ). Too bad customs will be able to pick them up faster then me, so now I'll just have to wait until they stop playing with the bones :)
  13. This seems to be the current situation for all RoW. I'm Wave 1 RoW, got by UPS mail on the 13th. No email from Reaper as yet and the UPS link just shows "Order Processed: Read for UPS" That's my situation except I received the UPS email on the 12th. Got my UPS mails on the 13th as well; Wave 1 RoW. I'm not concerned about the missing email from Reaper, but it's the status of UPS that's troubling me. It seems the packages aren't picked up yet. Tracking detail : Order processed : Ready for UPS (hoover : UPS has received the electronic transmission of the sipment details and billing information for this shipment from the sender. Once the shipment is moving within the UPS network, the tracking status will be updated. ) Shipment progress : - Location : (blank) - Date : 02/12/2015 - Local Time : 7:59 P.M. - Activity : Shipment information received by UPS Mail Innovations Got my first update: - Location : Bensenville, IL, United States - Date : 02/18/2015 - Local Time : 7:59 P.M. - Activity : Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations
