In the cases of some companies they will deliver the package and then send you a bill for the brokerage fees after! UPS did this to me and the cost was close to 20% of the value of the product. Chances are after you factor in shipping and brokerage fees the cost will be pretty close to $180.00...
Trust me on this I have a brokering license...
This of course, only applies to private couriers such as UPS.
