Is it worth the hassle and expense? You might do better to simply buy all new when you arrive.

Absolute bang on - far far better to just flog off what you had in your home country (or give to the homeless for an extra buzz) and buy new here

 

That's of course unless you have a £20,000 mattress, I might hang on to that !

Ah ok I didn't realise customs clearance was part of it. I will speak to the company shipping firm.

 

Many thanks

If it is not then you are paying a shipper to dump your stuff at the port with who knows what paperwork which he prepared and left you holding the bag for.  Since you most likely know little about the paperwork that is not a good situation to get yourself into.

 

My shipper delivered to my door in CM, you should consider getting similar service instead of hastelling how to get the stuff to CM by yourself.

That's exactly what I want and it will be delivered to my door but I wasn't sure of any excise fees even though I think I'm supposed to be exempt.

Just doesnt matter though.. The rules can say anything, once they have your stuff they will determine how much you want it (if not using a good connected agent). 

I have baksheesh insurance.

It does very much depend on what you intend to bring.. High end items are often insanely priced here (good tools also) I looked at buying some B&W speakers about a decade back, in uk I could get a set for +-4k GBP here I was quoted 680k baht !! Back then similar price differences could be found on home theater equipment / projectors etc now the consumer nature of those has brought them down. 

So it very much depends on what you wish to bring over. General household goods ?? I wouldnt bother.

The point is shipping is free for me and hence why I'm looking into how much that customs duty will be. Not sure if this is covered by my company or ok if within the budget I've been given which is a 40ft container.

 

I will ask when I am back at work.
