Ordering gear from Yurp/ Germany..fees?

so i want to order a pair of boots from biker-land.de? and my finger hovers above the buy but then i hesitate because i find myself reading the " additional fees may apply" fine print.

How does one know if they are going to get slammed with extra mysterious fees? or is it luck of the draw? Does it make a difference if i get them sent to a canadain addy or a US addy, fee wise?

info and experiences from you folks?

I ordered from them, no fees to the USA. Would buy again, nice people. Had a bit of trouble tracking package and sent them an email. They fixed me right up.

I have ordered 3 times from biker-land. They sent package by DHL each time. Never got any charges from customs.

Once, years ago, I ordered from another company that used UPS. They hit me up for $68 customs fees.

As a US customer, this is my experience with Biker Land and FC-Moto as well. I'm not sure how it would work with Canada.

I have had no issues with: boots, soft goods, skis, climbing gear, car parts...

I did get a weird ass letter when I ordered an Arai helmet, I was supposed to fill out some kind of DOT waiver stating for off-road use only before it was released to me. I politely declined and had it returned and ate the $60.

Same here-no extra fees shipped DHL, with an order from Adventure Spec in the UK for a set of Magadan Bags.

Do it.

My Visa debit from my Credit Union charged me 1% for an international purchase. Not a huge expense, but a little aggravating to be charged for buying something.
