KNOW what the brokerage fees are going to be if you're not in the USA. I have paid up to 1/3 of the cost of the order--like $150--just for "brokerage". Whatever THAT is.
FYI... next time if you're shipping UPS ask about 'expedited shipping'. It's faster, more expensive but the last time I checked if you use it customs brokerage fees are included in the shipping charge. So in the end you end up saving $10-20 AND you get it in a few days or less.
