    Default UK Customs delays

    Waiting on a parcel from the USA which has been sat in customs for over a week now.
    Anyone else experiencing the same problem?
    Never had to wait this long before.

    I had that happen, they'd sent me a letter with the charges and instructions, but it never arrived. Call them, or they'll send it back!

    Parcelforce sends out those letters though don't they? I emailed them and got this reply back "I must advise you that your parcel is currently with the UK Border Agency awaiting customs clearance"

    In my case there was a VAT charge, the invoice was sent but I never received it, so it was sat there "awaiting payment."

    Would you beleive it, I checked the tracking again and the status has just changed to "Awaiting Customs Charging"!
    At least things are moving along now.

    It took about 5 weeks for me to receive my m1 helmet i ordered from the USA, if its a big package you normally have to pay customs charges, when the package arrives at the local depot you should get at invoice type letter for customs charges you have to pay before they can release the item.
