    Hi all,
    I wasn't really able to find definite info (plus the not all laws make sense since I moved here a couple months ago as a student).
    So here's my question: I fancy buying (and stocking up because of the new laws) some base liquid from Avoria in Germany. I'm thinking between 2 and 4 liters. I vape 3mg, so if I buy 2/4l then I'd buy 0 mg and 6mg, and if I buy 3l, then I'd go with 2x 0mg and 9mg.

    The prices incl. shipping would be:
    2l - £31
    3l - £40
    4l - £55

    They ship with DHL. Would I be facing any taxes, vat, handling fees etc?

    4 liters is alot of juice.... how much do you vape per day, and how long do you plan to be in the UK?

    extra fees depends on what the liquid is actually stated to be on the customs form.... some people get it shipped as linseed oil... ;)

    I go trough 10mil give or take and I'm stuck here for another 2.5 years at the very least. I intended to buy 2 liters, but 3 or 4 are a steal!

    I don't expect Germans (especially a gianormous brand like Avoria) to play games, such as false-declaring:sleep:.

    And it wouldn't be fun to save on juice, but go bust on taxes..

    Both the UK and Germany are members of the European Economic Area which allows free trade between member states. There, to my knowledge, shouldn't be any duty due.

    Though, the question I have is, why buy 4 litres of 6mg (24,000mg) for £55 from Germany when you can buy 500ml of 72mg (36,000mg) from the UK for £31 including delivery?

    Also it's really easy to buy litres of Pharma grade VG and PG in the UK. I buy mine for under £7/litre from Classikool via Amazon.

    As big said makes more sense to get the 72mg locally then buying 3mg from Germany

    Or if you want a one stop shop for all things diy liquid try here has everything you need in one place and decent prices has taken a lot of hassle out of diy for me being able to get everything I need in one order.

    So glad I have US Sourcing.
    My last stock purchase, I found 100mg/ml(10%) on sale and picked up 4liters for $100u.s. - $25/liter w/free shipping:thumb:

    You all are already getting hammered on pricing.:oops:
