After following the recent changes about eh auctions and brexit i was wandering is there someone who recently did send a machine to europe? There is still a nice jennings waiting for me at the elephant and also some nice machines recently on his site. The pace comet that’s now for sale i really like. Sadly he don’t know how to transport to me at the moment, so i can’t make any bids. Does anyone have any experiences with transport, import duty, paperwork etc to europe recently after the brexit?

Thanks in advange.

I can only comment about using couriers like TNT or UPS. These people will provide all the necessary documents for you when you book it with them. You simply have to declare the country of origin of the product, the value and the harmonised tariff code. If you’re a business selling from the UK into Europe then you should also now have an EORI number, which is simply your VAT number with some extra zeros. I guess as a private seller you won’t need the EORI number. The seller can either choose to pay the taxes and include it in the selling price or they can choose to forward the import charges to the buyer, in which case the courier will send you an invoice to pay before they will deliver the goods to you. Assuming you don’t have an account with the courier, otherwise they will bill your account in due course.
Hope this helps.

Hans,
you shouldn't need an EORI (which is only your VAT number if you are Vat registered, otherwise it's a pretty random number) as you would not be exporting anything, you would be simply moving your own property from one country to another. You MAY need to pay VAT and handling dues at your end. The easiest way is to add the item to one of the hundreds of vans that take people and items to and from countries like Lithuania and Poland, they simply drop off your item as they pass you (the only problem would be your a little off there main routes but I believe that's not a problem for some). I can suggest reliable ones for you if your interested

It does indicate on the sites news section and when he is at Leamington Spa or Cambridge. Most machines are in Cambridge, but you can collect and drop at either..

I've not bought off the site as I'm reducing my collection down, gradually selling part project
machines then be moving onto complete machines. Due to number of machines I need to sell,
I may consign a dozen or so machines onto Steve's site but just evaluating how he's getting on
for now. There's a logistics situation I need to resolve too, as cannot drive still. With regard to
any bargains, I'm sure most of the buyers think they were...! It's interesting as a few machines
are now turning up on ebay and other sites post purchase off colcon site and prices that they
achieve may either drive greater or fewer volumes of machines thru Steve's site based on how
they do. People further away from Steve's location may have some inertia to his site, although
items can be dropped off at Leamington too I believe. Not sure what Steve charges for shipping
spares bought off his site, I'll have to ask him now he's fixed spares visibility snag as can now see
them at last!

Do you still have that odd playing-card shaped wall-mounted machine? The one that is marked for 5p, 10p and 6d.
I've started to look at late '60s electro-mechanical 'decimal ready' types, and that may well be one.
