How do I import Percussion Play instruments to the United States and how much does it cost?

Import Percussion Play Outdoor Instruments to United States

Put simply… “With ease and it only costs 6%”

  • To save you the time and hassle of spending hours trawling through pages of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) of the United States and understanding the various definitions and rules we’ve done this already.

  • We identify and export all of our instruments using commodity codes according to the HTS for trade between the UK and the United States of America.

  • The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Regulations 19 CFR 24.23(b)(1) require Formal or Informal customs entries for commercial goods which are subject to a Merchandise Processing Fee (MPF) (Formal entries are required for imports of commercial goods valued at $2,500 or more). We take care of this for you.

  • Freight costs vary from instrument to instrument and are dependent on not only the weight of the instrument but also the space occupied in transit. We pack everything with space saving in mind to keep the freight costs to a minimum, sometimes this means a little instrument assembly may by required, however full assembly instructions are always provided and we also have the assembly videos for a number of instruments.

  • How much does all of this cost and what is the cost of Freight?

  • Our incurred freight costs range from 4.2% to 13.0% of the US Dollar MSRP.

  • Duties payable can be as much a 5.3% of the US Dollar MSRP excluding freight costs.

  • MPF is nominally 0.3464% to a maximum amount not exceeding $485 however shall not be less than $25.

  • We subsidise these costs and in total we charge a nominal fee of 6.00% on the US Dollar MSRP for Customs Entries, Freight and Duties meaning you don’t have to do anything.

We have shown an example of this below :-

Rainbow Sambas MSRP $2,160.00

We charge import costs of $129.60

Total Costs Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) = $2,289.60.
