I'd be asking him to split it with you if you get tapped by HMRC; it's his mistake, he should suck some of it up at least.

He is already moaning because he didnt get the full amount I paid because of his Bank Charges (which isnt my fault!)

Trying to find out how its worked out? If its only a very small increase I might just pay up and shut up as I dont want things delaying any more!

I bet if I kick up a fuss Customs will want to investigate at which point I will get charged more in storage than the diffrence was...........................

May I suggest the following? You could do (3) first

 

1. Get an email from the vendor to confirm the error in the amount on the BoS sent to the Shipper

2. Send a copy of that email and your BoS to your Shipper and ask them to use the correct BoS and its correct $3000 value instead. You have proof of the amount paid in your possession and a genuine mistake has been made, so they can't refuse. They would be obliged to avoid using an erroneous document for official purposes.

3. If the Shipper isn't playing ball, call the relevant Helpline for HM Customs and Excise and ask their advice on what to do in this situation, then follow it and make sure your shipper follows it too

 

Hope that helps! You might find this useful too:

Aswell as the above, do you have proof of what you payed him? Say, a bank statement showing the amount transferred to him?
That’d be pretty helpful to prove your case.

Thanks Guyz

Yeh sorting out Bank Statements plus it was bought through eBay so using that as evidence too!

Seller is very laid back saying he is only human!

Yeh so I pay him $50 test to make sure I get everything right because its important right?

He thinks its no biggy he adds another 500 bucks on my BoS

Say What?????????????????????????????

Be glad when its over and its landed then its MOT and jobsworth testers taking dislike to where Ford put the indicators!

Followed by Registration paperwork being bounced back and forth because Doovla dont like my Handwriting!

Streesssssss :(

Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chill! It’ll be ok, trust me! I’ve done it all myself, it’s a really easy and quick process. And my handwriting looks like a 5 year old did it while they were pissed!
You’ve just been unlucky with this $500 thing. Get your bank statement and eBay invoice etc etc sent to your shippers and I guarantee they’ll be fine with it, it is after all a simple error and you have proof.


There will be something come up for the first mot. The lights will need sorting out into UK rulez but I doubt you’ll get issues with lamp positions, mine was fine in that respect. It’ll just need a few wiring mods and possibly high intensity coloured led indicators and silly stuff like that.
Plus of course anything else they find that are worn or in bad state like ball joints, brake hoses etc. Mine did...

It's even closer to me. And Monday's my day off next week. Are you picking it up personally off the boat or does it have to jump through several more hoops before they let you have it?

Well its not going to be today its not quite there yet,this keeps happening :(

The dates are an estimate I think if the conditions aint right or theres a delay in port etc?

Looking like Wednesday now :(

Im not picking it up its being delivered.

Looks like I may be paying the VAT sooner rather than later because of the dates which should mean in essence it should get cleared quite quickly :)

In the meantime...........................

When I drive down Janson Road on my way back to the office I can see the cranes lined up that unload the boats and when there's a big boat in I can actually see the containers and the bridge. There are four or five of these cranes and I think it takes a few days to unload one of these things. There was a boat in on Saturday that had been there a couple of days. I was thinking they need to get that out of the way to get Jo's Mustang in.

If it’s getting unloaded Wednesday then it’ll be unloaded and checked for customs etc. Then you’ll most likely get a letter a few days later requesting duty etc owed for non EU import. That’ll take a few more days.
Only when that balance is payed will your ‘Stang be released from the port.

That’s how mine was done anyway.
