Shipping to UK from USA?

Hi All

A company called Toshcomputers offers to ship Macbook pros to the UK saving the VAT.

Anyone used this service in the UK or US?
Any issues? concerned of being hit by the VAT as it comes through customs that will remove any savings.

Cheers Phil

You'll have to pay customs/VAT when it hits EU so there goes your savings. Only way to get without paying them is to go there and buy one and then come back, so it'd just be normal luggage.

With a company name like that, I certainly wouldn't trust them.
