Brokerage/Customs charges will vary depending on the broker used, size of shipment, etc.
And it's the luck of the draw if your package gets pulled for additional inspection, and whether the inspecting officer is having a good day.

I've had packages held for several weeks before clearing without opening. I've had packages held for a single day before being cleared. I've had packages opened but not tagged for taxes, and others that were.

Some days your lucky. Other days, not so much. But the odds are generally in your favour.
