Re: Where to send a pallet in Italy near Swiss border?

just curious how much the 'saving' is - because if you ship officially you can get the supplier to take off the 22% italian vat, and apply the 7.8% swiss VAT. For a larger shipment, this usually balanced out the shipping costs. But you have to do the calculations...if you buy in Italy and bring something worth more than 300chf across the border, then you will still need to deal with customs.
Thanks. Happy to deal with customs. The object isn’t that expensive, just big, bulky and heavy. And shipping to Switzerland rather than Italy adds about 40% of the value of the goods! If the only option is Genova or Trieste, we’ll have it shipped to Switzerland. If there was something closer, it would be nice...
