GPX 4500 out of the USA

Can anyone tell me if they have sourced a GPX 4500 directly from a US dealer?

I haven't heard of anyone doing it lately but I don't doubt that it has happened.

I don't think US dealers of products are able to export them without causing offense to the dealerships in the destination country. And since the item in question is available here now, I can't imagine why anyone would risk the import fees and customs duty plus GST on doing so. You'll also want to insure it for international transit. And if you deliberately undervalue the item when importing, you risk a charge of fraud plus a considerable fine and forfeiture of the goods. Customs are much more informed these days compared to just 5 years ago.

To quote Ambrose Bierce: "Tarrif: A scale of taxes on Imports, designed to protect the domestic producer from the greed of his customer"


Cheers,
