The UK Fellowship of the Limbo Parcel

Didn’t it clear customs in the Netherlands? The UK is still in the EU Customs Union, so it should just be waved through.


#381

That’s different, international parcel always go through Customs (and yeah NL customs have been really shit with us retaining the whole palette…)

Really hope that HMRC one are not going to be too picky there…


#382

Not necessarily. When something arrives in the UK from outside The EU, HMRC customs may (and often do) get their hands on it to add VAT. Since these packages seem to be marked at $19.05, it might just hit the threshold to be processed.


#383

Mines updated too. Says it’s ‘on route to country of destination’!

Exciting!


#384

From what i understood, customs at the netherlands opened the packages to remove the batteries and then repackaged them. If so we might be lucky as the package may be listed as netherlands for the source address.
Otherwise we may have HMRC services and costs to look forward to

Here’s hoping its the former


#385

Ust checked royal maiil…

“Your item has left our International Logistics Centre and is on its way to you. More information will be available as it travels through the network.”

I guess it will be with me soon then


#386

Sounds like no custom?!


#387

Mine is still here: This item has been received at LANGLEY HWDC, United Kingdom . More information will be available as it travels through our UK network.

I hope it will leave soon as well :smiley:

Meanwhile, i’m prepared with 2 BL-5C batteries (can’t remember if that’s the exact name) :wink:


#388

Mine still says " Item received at AMSTERDAM E INTERNATIONAL MAIL"!! It’d be nice if mine even enters the UK!


#389

On RM mine says it’s in transit and has left overseas at 2:20PM on Saturday. Didn’t know it took over three days to get from NL to UK.

Postal says it’s on transport to country if destination since then. Hmmmm.

Meanwhile I got a genuine Nokia BL-5C today.


#390

I am not from UK, but I was waiting with you for the package from PostNL and today it finally arrived. I wanted you to know that it has arrived including the battery. So I recommend not to hurry buying replacement batteries as you may get one included.


#391

Thanks @samuel
It might be because you were already in the netherlands and since it was already there, it was safe to transport it to you via car. That’s my assumption, but hopefully it will be as you say.

@YoshiK1 It may take a while to update on RM. Mine updated today that it reached UK (after being in transit overseas since Saturday) and joyfully it updated at 8 pm saying it’s out of HWDC and ‘on its way to you’.


#392

People on here are saying about the battery lasting a few hours so I always planned to buy a spare anyway but that’s cool you got a battery!

@1ceb0x fingers crossed!


#393

RM tracking is saying it’s at my local post office!


#394

Mine arrived right before I was leaving for work (sans battery).

It’s going to be a long day…


#395

Mine arrived too - no battery here either. (UK)
No customs charge though, which is nice


#396

Mines in the U.K. too now.

Can anyone recommended where they got there battery from? All the ones of amazon seem like they’re knock offs.

Thanks


#397

There’s one marked with “Amazon’s choice”, so I’ve plumped for that. If they’re promoting bogus products I will not be happy!


#398

How about this one?
