Default Parcels from China

Question to UK sellers who get a lot of parcels from China.

At the moment I'm getting 1 or 2 medium size parcels shipped from China once a month and never had any problems with customs. But I am planning on selling a bit more and looking at about 10-15 medium size and light boxes shipped every month. I'm thinking about spreading all parcels maybe thro 5 different addresses. What do you normally do? Do you get everything to your address or spread them too?

Depends very much on what you are importing.

If the stuff is legit (from China? Yeah right) then there should be no issues bringing it to your real address in any quantity.

If it's foo foo, you should not be getting anything delivered to your home address. If you are, well, good luck. . .

Small, medium, and large to you is not the same to everyone else. And it is also not size, but what is in the items, and depending on your carrier the value of the items. Large to you may be a 10 lb package and large to myself would be a shipping container (one on the back of a semi).

By "problems" are you referring to paying import tax and VAT?

Never ship to your home address.

Keep the home safe always.

What's wrong with shipping to your own address?

Depends on what are you shipping and how many, and many other things. I give you one of the reasons which might look absolutely ridiculous but this is really happening in UK. It makes me laugh so much sometimes :D When you shipping a lot you are attracting neighbors attention as well. Some are so hopeless and they get jealous. They think you are doing something dogy(without any idea what you really do) or making money and not paying tax.
They report you to a taxman or even police for doing "something suspicious" :D
I had an envelope dropped to my letter box by one of my neighbors asking if I pay tax for "business" I do.
While it may sound absolutely ridiculous it is happening and you never know what an idiot lives near you! Some are too lazy to work and just get benefits, they stay at home all day and watch what neighbors are up to.

Wait...do we have the same neighbors? haha, this is so true. I have neighbors that literally tried to open a package that was left on my front door step, luckily I caught them before they actually fully opened my package. When people don't know "Exactly" what you do...they will try to find out one way or another.
