Re: Bike Sellers Zurich
I get a lot of bike stuff from Wiggle, including a couple of bikes over the last few years. They deduct UK VAT at their end, but you are responsible for Swiss VAT when it arrives here plus import charges. This is normally 8% of the cost, plus about CHF20-40 for the courriers charges. If it is a small parcel it comes with the Post, and you have to be the tax on delivery. Larger parcels come with DHL and you get a bill from them a week or so after delivery.
Given the crazy shop prices here, as long as you are spending roughly GBP 150 or more you should be comfortably saving money.
