The end of UK repairs.

(1/5) > >>

Bryce:
Hi all,
      it is with much regret that I have to announce that I can no longer do repairs for UK members.Due to the new customs regulations that Brexit has caused, it is now practically impossible to send things for repair from the UK to Germany. I have spent the last few days trying to get a parcel that's stuck in customs, with many calls, e-mails and advice from a customs expert.The process would unfortunately involve much time and expense and massive paperwork for each parcel and also require me to register as a small company, which in turn involves solicitors and tax implications. It would also require me to go through a similar process to send items back as I would also be required to document and prove that the item had indeed been sent back to the UK.

As you can imagine, this is more than I am willing to do and despite much investigation into possible work-arounds or exceptions to the rules, it seems there aren't any. Sorry guys, I helped while I could. If anyone from the UK has anything they need fixed in the future, then send me a PM and I'll put you in touch with one of the many talented electronics friends I know in the UK.


Bryce.

Really sorry to hear this. 

However, it would seem it's primarily a German government problem rather than a Brexit problem.

In the UK you can send and receive a "gift" anywhere in the world with a value of £38 / $50 USD without any customs hassles.  Can you not do the same from Germany?

Not to be confrontational @redbox but over the last few years (pre-Brexit) I sent three or four CPC's to @Bryce for repair without any problem.
The UK left a "club" that had positive real benefits and leaving has consequences.

dragon:
Germany is subject to eu laws as the other 26 country's.
Its the same for every country in eu.


The reality u.k is now in a true island inclusive virtually.


Thats the price for brexit unfortunly.


I read an article the other day that spanishs trucker that in pre-brexit era they go from Spain to UK. For around 3000e. They don't go now to UK due to brexit. Because the cost to customs is now 9000e and only to cover cost.
