Garrett at max. ..strange pricing ...

Post by salaud » Tue Jan 30, 2018 8:33 am

Just a thought. .
Current Kellyco price for ATMAX 722 usd. Or 521 quid.
If you add £50 for delivery...we got 571...plus taxes which are currently 3% import plus 20% vat....that still only comes to approx £700
And that's the price for me buying 1 detector from a usa retailer. ..no discount for being a business or using economy of scale...
Makes you wonder just why the uk retailers are all asking around £840 ..... clearly can't blame it on tax or shipping. ...
Just saying..

Blame it on a weak £.

Not sure I'd risk shipping from the US to UK though.

£ to $ is pretty high at the moment.
maybe businesses just want to make a profit?

Strength of the pound or otherwise is represented in the exchange rate.. facts is facts..the thing cost just over 500 quid in the states RETAILl. ..total import /vat charges are 23% that's 115 quid ..so..615 quid RETAIL....plus shipping....still looks to me like U.K retailers are taking the proverbial

Hi Salaud,
I think it's always been this way. Back in the day when my telescope was cutting edge it cost £1250 but over in the Land of the Free it retailed for in the region of $800.
