    just picked up daredevil directors cut and ultimate dawn of the dead from dvd soon and got hit for another £8.50 customs charge when it arrived :eek: .
    Doesn't seem worth trying to buy from them anymore. Despite the lengthy wait I could put up with this as the price was good, guess I'll start to look elsewhere now

    If you breach the £18 customs limit you take your chances.

    if you ordered them as two separate orders and they came in two envelopes neither envelope would be over the £18 limit problem solved

    Hard way to learn that lesson, mate. Always order separately.

    I just got the Looney Tunes box set with no customs charges from DVD Soon and I even had to pick it up from the local PO depot as it was too big for the letter box. Seems to be totally random, as I got customs charges for my Star Wars box set from DVD Soon back in November!

    You have to be careful not to order 2 things at once. Otherwise they'll be sent in the same paskage. It's just a shame they don't mark all items down to $12 Canadian like they used to do. I had 2 GC worths worth £26 each sent in the same package. Luckily it was marked down to the equivelent of £5 each. Was very relieved to receive the pack with no charges. Have RE4 on it's way now. Because I have never been caught out when importing over 50 items, (not all over the the £18 limit tbh), I'm convinced the next one will be caught. Still, fingers crossed RE4 gets through. :rolleyes:

    Edit: RE4 is the 29th package I've had sent, and so far, 28 have got past custums. :)

    Like what was already said above what on earth did you expect if you go over the £18 limit? You could have easily have split the orders and saved yourself the customs hit.

    I just ordered resident Evil 4 And mario party 6 for GC on same order

    Now i did this a week or 2 ago and dont really wanna cancel the order and go further down the pecking line

    I am am hoping as they are both out of stock they will come in at different times and be sent seperately as i am sure DVD Soon do part ship

    Remember, when you cancel an order, you get store credit rather than a refund. They always take payment straight away.
