And considering the cost of freight on their own as pointed out by Johnboy, packaging all these sets up together will cost a hell of a lot less.

Cheers

Just to give some thought with regard to this and the applicable duties.

I paid a total of $900 for importing a crate which my motor sat in, it was approx 400 kilo's and measured 1.2m X 1.2M X 1.2M

In other words it worked out to about $2.25 a kilogram.

Now their is no import duty on US manufactured goods due to the Free Trade Agreement of 2009/10 however 10% GST applies.

So lets "Hypothetically" assume that Dave declares the total consignment price as being $2000.00 Australian and completes the form verifying that all the parts were manufactured in the USA, the applicable GST would be $200 for the lot.

So considering the size of my crate and the volume and weight, lets say there was 15 sets of gear in there, I would propose the following

Freight $900 divided by 15 equals $60.00 each
GST of $200 divided by 15 equals $13.33 each
Add individual value of ordered parts

For $73.00 odd each I think this would be a hell of a lot more economical than $320 per set  as mentioned by Johnboy through his inquiry.

Just food for thought.

I'm not trying to be negative, but aren't there other fees and charges, besides GST and Import Duty??  BS like Customs Check fee, Port Landing fee, 'Some government department trying to make money' fee, etc.

OK using the Customs formula on the link you provided then

Customs value  $2000.00
Customs duty (Duty) Not applicable as these are US produced
International transport and insurance or postage $900


Value of the Taxable Importation (VoTI) (Cval+Duty+T&I) = $2000 + $900 = $2900

Goods and Services Tax (GST) @ 10% of the VoTI = $2900 x 10% = $290

Total payable Duty + GST = $290.00

Shipping = $900
Goods = 2000
Duties + GST = $290

Total cost shipping + Duties = $1190.00

Divided by 15 sets = $1190 / 15 = $79.33

I forgot that GST is payable on the shipping value also so $6.00 more per head

If the parts are packaged in a way that the container they are in does not have to be treated i.e. Timber, Quarantine services cant bug you with any charges, Customs also are there just to collect the duties and GST

The self-assessed clearance (SAC) declaration which has to be lodged with Customs and Border Protection is done by the shipping agent as part of the shipping fee, I can speak to my agent who brought in my motor and get a quote to verify all these figures based on a 1m X 1M X 1M plastic shipping container if we decide to move forward.

I would ring and check on that John, I got my front spoiler from MSA with a door to airport service and I think I got hit with about $200 in extra charges even though it was a new item, I think it was port charges customs clearance fees etc, something i definetely didn't expect

No probs Mossy

I will speak to my man Stewart at Trade Lanes and confirm once we have something more definite, I guess what I am trying to emphasise is that the combined shipping will show real savings on top of whatever Dave can do on price.

Update also on the quantities.

Cheers

John

Hey John, I don't think I would be a very solid number for you as I don't think I could afford them this year (even at a discounted price).... but I have a very very small interest in the rear disc brake kit. March/April next year would be a different story though.

one other savings buster is then posting anything within australia, which could easily add another $50+ for interstate people like me.

Buddy if everyone agreed on a month, I wouldn't have a problem delaying, up to you, would Feb/March be a possibility?

Or the Zed courier service may help?

This is the thing, do the math, if you ordered the front and rear brake kits, as already stated, shipping would be $320 a set, now coming in this way it would probably cost you $100, a saving of $500 odd bucks, so even if it cost you another $100 to ship them to yourself from their landing spot in Australia PFFFFFFFFFFFFFT !

For your calculations... I wasnt charged gst on my suspension from him, even though it was over 1000. Maybe cause it came in 2 packages. You would certainly pay gst on a group buy, so youd need to save at least 10% to make it worth wild.

Good point Scoota, so how would everyone feel if we did go ahead placing the order towards the end of Jan 2012?

First I'm pretty sure the savings on freight will be well above 10% probably more like 25%
Second we will see what Dave offers us on a large order like this
Third, you pay GST on what Dave "SAYS" he sold them for  ;)

Websites like e-go and Smartsend are really cheap for postage around Australia.  I have used them heaps in the last 12 months and you will be amazed how cheap they can be.  I am interested in rear control arms, but not till next year.  I think Feb would give enough time after Christmas to save up.

The savings have to be 10% of the total, not just the freight. In my instance, suspension was $1600, freight was $300. Gst on that would be 190. So to be worth wild, postage would have to be reduced from $300 to $110. Or youd have to get a group discount out of him.

OK

To stop any further speculation, Im thinking that I send dave the list (+ any new potential items not yet listed, so contact me here if you want to be put down and what you are after) so that we can get an idea on prices, package size and weight and that way I can do some homework on what this will all end up costing.

If you are sitting on the side lines thinking about this, chuck your hat in (NO OBLIGATIONS) and lets see what we come up with.

I would like to send this off to him tomorrow night so we get some response over the weekend.

All agree that late Jan 2012 will be the order date? it will probably take a few weeks for Dave to get it all together anyway should we decide to go ahead.

Cheers

John
