Following Brexit on 1 January and to allay any concerns British customers may have with ordering scooter parts from Germany, SIP Scootershop today issued the following statement…
“SIP Scootershop is shipping Vespa & Lambretta parts to the UK as usual, also after Brexit. Basic shipping method is as known UPS Standard with a Flatrate 6 € (aprox. 5,40 GBP) per order.
“Since January, 1 2021 we do not charge VAT any more to any order going to the UK, we do charge net prices as indicated in our webshop.
“Our customers receive their goods within 2-3 working days as they are used to by UPS. Express Service is available at extra costs. Around 2 weeks later customers will receive a „customs invoice“ with the “import turnover tax” equivalent to UK Vat, issued by UPS. All goods being sent by us are not subject to duties.
“We are happy to say in total this is not changing very much for us as a supplier nor does it change very much for our valued UK customers. We are here for you, on our UK Hotline +44 (0) 2038 701487 as well as in our UK webshop.
“More detailed information on Brexit topics can be found here:”
Here at ScooterNova magazine we would just like to add that in our experience so far in 2021, Brexit and Covid related delays do seem to be occurring in some areas but things are eventually getting through. Hopefully normality will return soon.
