    Default Dollar to Pound

    Have you seen the exchange rate at the moment?
    A dollar is worth 60p currently.
    Can get a new Rol-Plow from the States for 136 delivered.

    watch you don't get stung on the import duty, some couriers (fedex, ups) have also started charging personal individuals comp processing charge - basically a paperwork fee - depending on the product value and country of original manufacture.

    Haha - you're fine if you are smuggling it in a suit case Beermonster!! it's when folk order online from States then next time they speak to me they are surprised that their 100 order ended up costing another 40 to clear customs! plus the new handling fee added by courier is a killer - if you have vat deferment accout and import licence and you are bringing containers of tools in then you should be fine !

    who you trying to send mini taper back to?? ( i often have returns going back across the pond)
