Well, I seriously doubt that they have a list of everything ever made so I think that they will charge the taxes over what has been paid for the cabs (plus shippingcost and insurance). Plus it seems a bit bogus to charge someone over for let's say a 1000 cab just coz their list says so while in reality only 100 has been paid for it. I remember once getting stopped at customs with a watch I got as a present and they looked the pricetag and charged me accordingly.
And Thomas, as always your optimism is very contagious  Cheesy

Ladies and gentleman,

just to make sure: please keep me updated on stuff you are getting, wether from Lloyd or others. I need to stay on top of things especially regarding the number of cabs going into the container.

Thanks!  pacman

Hey,

 perhaps interesting for you guys. Before Thomas came up with this awesome idea I managed to ship my first cab myself. I`ve simply e-payed a Atari Space Duel. The shipping costs me about 350USD. After 3-4 weeks the ship will arrive in the next days and I was contacted by a german company who cares about the delivery and harbor handling. So I was charged about some harbor fees. This fees was

LCL-Charge, for getting the stuff out of the container.

GSC (General Surcharge Compensation) charge after terror events 2001 for security

D/O-Fee (Delivery Order Fee ) transfer fee.

and finally Anti-Terror-Compliance for automatic electric investigation of all adresses regarding the shipment.

all this fee made 150 incl. VAT.

Then the custom fees come on top. I don't know the costs here exactly. I proposed to name the shipment "defect video game device".

Then I asked for container shipment. The very friendly girl from this company told me that this is a complete different story and is going to much more less.

I guess the 150 for the harbor handling is quite cheap. For other companies I`ve heard about 250-270 for shipping a cab similar item.

Thanks  pacman

Ladies and Gentleman,

I got feedback from Dachser who will forward our container. I just copy + paste it here. For me the case is closed Wink


Dachser:
> The rates you received from our NYC office should apply
> without any further costs. However it can happen that
additional
> costs accrue if for example the following happens:
>
> - customs wants to see the freight/paperwork (customs
inspection)
> - the carrier does not accept the empty container at their
inland
> depot and we have to return the container back to the port.
> - demurrage/detention charges if we cannot return the container
> within the demurrage/detention free time we get from the
carrier.
>
> etc etc.


Me:
Can you please go into more detail regarding the risks you
mentioned? Like how can it be prevented, how much will it cost if
it happens etc?


Dachser:
> Unfortunately there is nothing what you/we can do against it.
> If customs wants to see your freight than there is nothing you
> can do and charges would be as per outlay.
> Same with the return of the empty container. If the depot is full
> and the carrier is telling us that they will not accept any
> further container than there is nothing we can do except finding
> another inland depot or we have to return the container to the
> port.
>
> Please note that this happens pretty rarely.
