    That's my experience too on small orders.

    Another warning though for larger orders or when sent via courier: ALWAYS make sure that the vendor includes the shipping cost on the commercial invoice. The nice XinLichuan stepper people forgot to do this on the order I've just recieved, and HMRC took it upon themselves to estimate the freight cost.... at 3x what I'd actually paid = an extra £46 duty & VAT. Thankfully I can claim most of it back on the business, but a private individual would either have to battle it out with HMRC or accept the loss
