It eventually happened, and there are significant changes – and administration issues – for shipping amp parts and kits to customers in the EU and Northern Ireland. Courier companies are increasing their prices to cover their overheads and there’s also a postage costs update.
If you are in the EU/NI you may want to wait until things improve before ordering. If you order now, be aware that there will be extra costs (customs, VAT, administration) that you are likely to be charged by your local post office or delivery company. This may add 20-33% or so to the actual cost of your order – or even more if you order a small item, where an administration cost could easily exceed the item’s value. In addition, courier companies are making mistakes with some deliveries and there are many stories about packages sitting in a courier hub for days while a human tries to work out what paperwork is required for them to proceed.
All of these headaches may get easier with time, but for now the delays and hassles are significant and likely.
If you are outside the EU (Norway, USA, Canada, etc) there should be no change.
