Customs fees

Please indicate only the current value of your shipment for goods to be cleared.
Otherwise, unnecessary additional costs could be incurred.
Since it is defective goods the value is often not higher than 35 €.
This approach saves an inadequate or incorrect assessment of the value of a defective system and makes it easier for all parties to proceed with customs clearance.
If customs duties are charged, you have to pay them.
