Posted Sun Jun 24, 2012, 7:51am Subject: Importing a machine into the U.S.
I've found a number of vintage espresso machines for sale in Europe but I'm apprehensive to purchase one because of the potential hassle of bringing the machine into the U.S. (e.g., customs, duty, etc.). If anyone could share their experience, it would be much appreciated. How long did it take to receive your machine? How was shipped? What additional fees did you have to pay to get it into the country? Did the courirer include these fees in the shipping cost? Who did you use? Thanks.
