This is copied directly from the email invoice (Please note I had the PE version rather than the standard version):

Cart Items                                                                                                             SKU      Qty    Item Price                Item Total
GRS-16 PE Parallel Edge Guide Rail Square                                                      61-220    1      $169.95 USD          $169.95 USD
                                                                                                                                                                Subtotal:       $169.95 USD
                                                                                                                                                                Shipping:        $14.95 USD
                                                                                                                                                            Grand Total:      $184.90 USD

Also, there was customs duty from FedEx which was around £20-£35 I think, but can't recall the exact figure to be honest.

Regards, Mark

Cheers Mark , I know the cheaper square is $150 plus $15 shipping. I was just curious as to the import duties etc so I know what the total cost would be

If it is sent USPS (ie US equivalent of Royal Mail), the normal UK charge is £8 + 20% VAT on product plus shipping charge.  I don't think the cost is high enough to attract duty in addition (I got my one some little time ago and forget the exact charges).

we would really appreciate feedback on the actual import and shipping experience from international customers to our off-line email address so we don't clutter up the FOG with details of transactions.
We started out with USPS International but heard some questions about the uncertainty about the time it took from arriving in the international country until it was delivered. We switched to FedEx Int'l Economy and have heard feedback about delivery to a number of foreign countries in a week or even less - amazing.
On the other hand, customers living in locations considered "remote" by FedEx, there may be an additional charge.

please tell us about your TSO order experience off-line so we can offer the best - and more -choices
