Ive a question about HAAS pricing and buying, im in the UK and as usual were being reamed by product pricing, an example would be the haas minimill, in the US it cost 31K in the UK it costs 47K(both in dollars), thats 150% of the US price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Import duty is 2.2% leaving me wondering where the other 47.8% goes?
I wondered if there are any companies which offer to buy and ship US machines to the UK? even with 2Kish shipping the savings on a new VMC are massive.
Or can you buy haas off the shelf, im in the US for work next month, could i order a machine to pick up and then take it to a freight company and have it shipped back?
thanks for any advice
