I’m looking into selling away my boards to finance one. I’d have to pay $330 shipping to the UK, so considering this, is it actually economical to buy one?
In my situation, I would potentially be able to make my own motor mounts/3d print components, but I can’t make my own battery and I like what Lacroix has going. I’m wondering if its actually economical to buy one, or if its marginally cheaper to make my own board. I am using a landyachtz evo w/ diyeboard components on it at the moment, I really like the airless tires and stuff so I don’t know how much of a step up pneumatic are from the airless tires.
Are they selling a kit including board+enclosure+battery pack? On the website I can only see the complete and the board+enclosure.
Either way, economical is not the reason I would choose that set up if I had the $$$. That’s already 700$ for board+enclosure, don’t get me wrong, I love it but I just cannot conceive how I would spend that much for a deck. The introduction price was somewhat more acceptable but they probably won’t do it again.
No idea. This is country specific.
In Greece anything above 22Euro pays VAT and over 150Euro VAT + import tax. These prices include shipping costs, so if an item is 130 actual cost+40 shipping then importing it costs 170Euro +24%VAT + import taxes
If you use a courier service (UPS, FEDEX etc) then you will also be charged brokerage fees (which are usually very expensive)
Some parcels may slip through customs if the vendor declares a lower value on the parcel but nowadays if it is comes outside of the EU and is above 150Euro you are screwed.
its not about how much you earn.
It´s about the value of your ordered product.
our tax limit is 1000$ in the month.
means, if I order a board for 1300$ i need to pay 30% tax for 300$ which exceeded the 1000$ mark.
yap! not only form china
if everything comes in one month 1000$ can be reached fast
As far as I know from next year it will be set down to 500$, but even than.
Still can order 500 for me and 500 for my girfriend
that safes a lot of money, which I usually need to spend for the shipping than anyhow…
We’re in the commonwealth and I can’t even think about a lacroix because of silly import duties. Has to do with trade agreements and apparently Canada has bad ones with certain members of the commonwealth. Why is above my pay grade and I don’t care enough to bother finding out but its annoying hey? To have a complete lacroix delivered to aus costs in total $4000 us
Bollocks I say.
3100€ is a lot for a board.
Just as a quick exercise:
Landyachtz EVO 200€
6374 motors 300€
Surfrodz + mounts 300€
12S5P 30Q Battery with BMS 500€
Various stuff I forget 200€
Total 2250€ for a top of the line esk8.
