I've recently had a belt and holster shipped together with a slight reduction in total shipping cost. They have it written somewhere that you just hold off on paying until they send you an invoice with all of your 'won' items together.

I just bought from them, what, 3 days ago? No combined shipping. Maybe it depends on the rep, I'll try your way next time.

Graham, Ehobby will ship anything here, he just hasn't designated the shipping cost here. It'll be the same as the US shipping cost anyhow. The same "cautions" are used with Ehobby as anyone else in reguard to what you order.

Odd, I've ordered and received several boxes of the same mags and customs had opened and fondled everything in there. Still trying to get the smell out, not to mention the protoplasmic goo.

I have been using Ehobby for some time, this is what I do.

1. yes you can import mags metel plastic ect.
2. If you want to save money have ehobby declair the total value of your purchase as $20.00 even if you paid $200.00 for your items. by doing this you will avoid paying any duty and tax.
3.all large shipments get a tracking #, shiping time usuly takes 5-7 days to arive in Canada.

I have spent over 900.00 using Ehobby and have not had a problem yet

When I ordered the mg42 thing from Kushman they shipped it to me as a plastic toy and as a gift and it came through with no problems at all customs didn't even open the box. Anytime I have something shipped from the US I get them to list it as a gift and under $60.00 and have yet to get nailed for any duty or taxes

Having them under-declare the value of the lot may not prevent you from getting taxed if the custom officer decides it's worth more.

I recall seeing a story about a guy who ordered a bunch of Rolex presidential replicas, the kind that a tens if not hundreds of thoudands of dollars, and got taxed accordingly to their real worth. Custom's way of saying don't import replica watches, I guess...

So long as you avoid UPS like the plague, you won't get taxed too much. Even if you get taxed, it's not that bad.

I always add 30% of the final value of what I'm about to import, and compare that to the cost of what's locally available, to see if it's worth the risk and the wait.
