I have not found a really recent topic on this and have a few additional topics that weren’t answered in other topics about importing/buying from abroad. Have been looking into ordering an X-carve from the Netherlands.
There seem to be 2 ways commonly taken;
- Buying directly from inventables
- Buying from Robosavvy in the UK
I found a few people suggesting the second route is about the same priced as the first given all additional cost in the first method.
When I tried ordering online from inventables most parts were shipped seperately thereby increasing shipping cost to a whopping $400+ dollars. Aside from this import duties may apply.
I saw a page for a past promotion of Inventables where free worldwide shipping was included as well as a $100 discount. If this was the case, I suspect the machine was not send in multiple shipments but in one. Does anyone know why it is send separately?
Could you perhaps give some advice as to how to order the machine in Europe cheaper (or at reasonable premium)?
