Are you also factoring in VAT and any import
duty to your calculations? Cos if you are using a shipping
agent the package and paperwork will get processed through customs
. Of course if the item was secondhand it would be cheaper, and with it being a holding tank
it may avoid close inspection!...but would probably easily be spotted as being used or not!
By regular mail is how folk tend to get items into the EU "without too much paperwork" on the basis that any taxes claimed
( ! ) get paid on arrival and nothing gets declared in advance........it is a lottery on a bill being payable.
