How to ship/import from Japan a cab?

Post by Viny » Fri Apr 26, 2019 20:34

Hi everyone!

I have a sweet dream to purchase a neo19 candy cab... I obviously can’t afford the crazy price we see around Europe but I saw recently some affordable bidding on Japanese auction platform.
But the main question is : How to I get this back to Netherlands???

Any idea of process? Cost? Time? Import tax??

Thanks!!

I have once imported a New Astro City from Hong Kong (before the Nozomi group buys) and that was extremely expensive. Basically it was not worth it, unless you fully fill a shipping container and not just one cab. Don't know if the same holds for Japan, but without a group buy it will probably be more expensive than buying one in Europe. Shipping and import to The Netherlands from Hong Kong was about €1500 for just one cab.

You can contact rklok.nl

I dropped him a PM. Indeed he is on top of things like this. He already seen the auction and bid on top of it...

Let s see if he got a set home already for this one...

Not sure how much he visits the forum, better get in touch via Facebook messenger if he hasn’t replied to you yet
