    20-25%.

    Don't expect your trainers to be real.

    I hope they were not branded trainers from china as they will be fake and may not make it out of customs!

    They are trainers yeah, I was getting samples ot see if they were genuine or not, guessin you all think they wont be...hoping your wrong, but doubt you are, you all seem to know what your talking about.

    I do live in Coventry yes. Smeone saying ill get charged around 20-25% of what there worth, someone saying ill get charged nothing, someone saying I wont ever see them, and someone saying im gonna face criminal charges....

    Anyone actually know whats gonna happen lol.

    No one here has a crystal ball unfortunately. However you don't need a crustal ball to know you have purchased counterfeit goods.

    Usually that means that they are inspecting the goods.

    From my experience packages seem to get checked in three ways;

    1). They check the declaration on the goods and let it pass if they believe that the goods match the description and they are not over the taxable value of about £20.

    2). They process from the label a fee that is collected by the courier company e.g. parcel force

    3). They will xray and inspect the goods for some reason, leading to a longer delay, you might be contacted by customs and informed of charges or questioned about the good.

    Unfortuneately I am not sure the parcel force system allow you to know which of the three they are doing - it is just listed as handed over to customs.

    Hi guys

    I have recently ordered sum golf clubs from china. I had already done this once before and handling time was all of like a day.
    But now i have been waiting 7 days for my tracking number to update. the last thing that it said was awaiting customs charging.
    Surely they would have been able to have charged me by now or what ever they do????
    I rang them up yesterday and all they said was to wait. How long will i have to wait because it is really annoying??????????
    Someone please help
