Shipping to the UK without customs charges . .

Hey there,

I'm new to this site and can't find the answer im looking for. Basically Id like to take part and buy an item through here for a new desktop computer build. Can I guarantee that the package will be marked as a 'gift' so that I am not hit with a huge bill when they come through customs? when I used to ship from Hong Kong my suppliers would always mark the item as a gift so that customs charges are not applied. If I have to pay an unknown customs charge then this will negate the whole point of using Massdrop as any savings I make will be lost. Can anybody advise?

Thanks very much for any help/advice.

i know i wish it was not a thing
Nope, marked as gift will not happen at all!
If other people like to act illegal, its up to them, but MD will always provide a correct invoice.

It's government's right to collect taxes, levies, tariffs and duties from its citizens. If you don't like it, you may raise the issue through your representative in the Parliament or emigrate to a different country :)

Well they aren't going to enslave me through their fascist entitlement. Thanks for your advice though I'll take it under advisement! ;)
