I want to buy some boots, and it will come to a paltry R600 if I buy it there, and thats a damn good price (Fox trackers)

Cost in this country? Add another 1K on odd for shipping and stealer profit. Even importing it, is expensive cos of shipping.


Where did u see them for that price? The US?

Here is the price for France:
From this link: http://boutique.emoto.com/product_info.php?cPath=589_642_3313&products_id=25968

150.00 Euro    =   1,099.98 ZAR
1 EUR = 7.33318 ZAR       
1 ZAR = 0.136367 EUR

Thanks Zonkel, Kev and Welshie

Yep, the USA is the cheapest at R600 - I mean, you could buy 3 of them for the same price as one locally. Stupid stuff.

Doing my sharping all the time, trying to source the best deals.

Kev, thanks for all that homework, BAIE nice of you! Hope the Crepes were awesome... :D

How does this import thing work with bike parts/accessories?

What do the customs add on top of the price?

Delivery costs?

It's amazing what one can get the stuff for over there.

guys all i know is that you should test on the boots before buying over yonder.

I found fox pro formas in a smaller size fit me, and fox trackers in a larger size.

so for me, its size 12, euro 47

jm, you must ask what shipping is before you buy. calculate cost. then, tip - get the stuff delivered to your door. customs and taxes are MUCh cheaper than getting delivered to the PO


eg: mate paid R250 odd for alpinestar tech 10 boots (some of the most expensive boots on planet - retail for R5.5K here. package said value was $300

i paid freken R600 tax and duties even though my box said $100 cost

geddit?

so do it and enjoy. btw, my mates experience wasnt fluke, he gets that all the time. earphones, boots, clothes, etc

Thanks Lito. Amazing! :shock:  Even though I do like to support local business, the differences we are talking here are huge!
