On mine "Parlor Games" was written.

On my secenod shipment one delivery attempt is already showing up, but i havnen't seens
anything from this shipment. Maybe they count delivery to customs office as attempt.

I allready wrote it in another thread here, but well here it is again:

Despite the customs information from the warehouse had parlor games on it, it did not prevent the customs officer (and post-men who did the package opening instead of me) to decide that it were 'Bausätze+Baukastenspielzeug(e) aus Kunststoff' which is an additional tax of 4,7% on the value including shipping costs (+ 16% VAT on the TAX, <irony> because it adds so much value</irony>). Since I were not at the customs myself because of the 'automatic' procedure this time, I had no chance at all to protest and point them to the 'parlor games = Gesellschaftspiel'.

I still have to find out, how I can tell to the German Post (or DHL?) that I want to do my customs declarations myself. According to a 'flyer' they added to the package this should be possible.

Oh and in regard to the USPS tracking:
Mine was listed as 'delivered' when I had the 'orange card' in mail mailbox.
This card tells that one can either pick up the package at the post office within one week or can note a date when they should try to deliver it again. And this time the card also told me that I had to pay those >100€ additional money, so that I allready knew that the customs went the worst case.
I would really be interested what the USPS tracking would have listed if I refused to pay and the package were returned to DF (OK, I would be very stupid then; sending DF stuff back what an absurd idea).

Hi Guys. Here in Spain I've been catched by the taxman too.

In the notification I recieved it said "Parlor". I think this have not worked to avoid the package been stoped in the airport for taxes.

I have to pay 74 Euro for one package with 1 River set and several minis sets as well as 8 diagonal floors and 2 cavern floors. it's Crazy!

Last time it happened to me was similar, and the criteria used to stop one package and no other in the airport custom duty is really ominous as well, it's not a matter of weight, nor volume, nor the stuff in the box, is a hardly understandable combination of them, and the "misterous desires of the taxman".

And the process to release the package is uncomfortable, faxes, telephone calls, email... crazy man.

Well, better luck next time. Can I suggest the word "Toys" for the next Spanish package instead of "Parlor"?.

Here "Toys" is a word that lot of people knows, and perhaps the taxman will warm is heart thinking in little babies with teddy bears... ;-)

Hi All

I think I have solved the mystery of the multiple boxes.

And DF - you won't like what I found out. Your supplier is screwing up with your as well as our money by saving some himself.

More in a full Sleuth story with pictures later today or tomorrow - the family is waiting.

Hi everyone,

here is the - happy - end of my story:

I received the second box with 1 Advanced Builder Set, 1 Deluxe Room Set and several single items as I ordered them.

There were no problems with customs. I just had to prove that I already payed all the taxes and customs when I got the first box (with the 3 CRW Sets).

Customs gave the advice that in case of multiple shipment the invoice inside the box should show just those items which are in the box. So a splitted invoice would help.

But by the way the customs declaration from Dwarven Forge was correct and in my opinion customs could have recognized that the order was split and there were more than just one box.

Anyway for me there is no reason for complaining. Thanks to DF for the great quality of their products.

Happy ending in my story.
At last the remaining two boxes arrived.

At the customs office they hadn't even worded out
the customs for the first one i picked up last week.

So the simply throw away the papaers from last week
and we decided to do customs for all the stuff together.
(it could have become worse cause i habe two invoices
and three parcels)

But now all is fine and the stuff is great (as usual).
