thing is even if they are in china with a uk item location its upto them to pay all the import fees at the same price as items outwith uk. i'm personally amazed at how quick the item arrived after buying it.

now here is another way that they do it. there are massive warehouses and containers full of imported shizz from china and lots of different vendors (or one vendor with lots and lots of accounts) all selling the stuff inside it. only problem is once its sold it then becomes the vendors problem. a bit like how our supermarkets work when buying things like fruit.

do they pay tax.. more than likely not but hey one of the biggest companies in the world dont pay tax in the uk either. i dont see the gov rushing out and banning them from trading in the uk.

There is 2 huge warehouses near to mine.
When I mean huge, 20,000 sqft each with racking 10ft high, 1 meter apart.

Use to courier inbound to them. Royal mail used to send a 7.5t every day just for them. That's on top of the DPD collection.

Must be a Yorkshireman - never put his hand in his pocket!
Will be seeing him at the Scott Trial on 13th.
Possibly his last ride on that event.
