Floyd - please post when you get the FedEx invoice. How much import fee, forwarding fee, HST, clearance entry fee, HST on Ancillary Service Fees are they charging you? It usually will tally in at close to half the stated customs value.

I bet you're going to be shocked!

Re: HobbyKing & Fedex Fast Shipping

I won't be shocked, the total value was $16.00 Canadian.
I feel way ahead after ordering thousands of Dollars of stuff from the US and not getting nailed once. Usually I get Canada Post at my door collecting but in the last two years I haven't had to pay anything on some large $$$ purchases. Cheers Floyd

If buying from HK, mark the import value at 10% when placing your order. Then make sure it's sent Singapore Post. Your order will then traceable. When it hits Canada Post information, you can start tracking from them.

You won't be able to do that with "dangerous goods" batteries, since they can only be sent from HK by UPS or FedEx. Do anything to avoid using FedEx.

Re: HobbyKing & Fedex Fast Shipping

I have had very good experience with Fedex . The trick is do it by the book and reap the benefits. Those that won’t , have to pay the piper.

This has been discussed numerous times on RCC .

Actually this post is about the super fast shipping I got from Hong Kong with Fedex. Not about taxes and fees. I wonder if anyone else has had three day shipping from Hong Kong? Cheers Floyd

I ordered a bunch of 3s batteries a few months back(from international site)
I asked for them to be shipped Fed and they shipped UPS?
I declared 10% and received the batteries a week or so later. Paid Zero taxes,$4 duties and I have never heard from UPS since. I despise UPS and would have never chosen them but the decision was made for me, but in anycase it worked this time.

BTW.. these batteries are for TOY AIRPLANES and there for fall under the trade agreement we have with China. At least at that time Trudy wasn't screwing it up for us.
