TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Tarptent import & delivery time

Postby mountimeer » Sun 13 Nov, 2022 1:14 pm

Hello everyone,

what are your (fairly recent) experiences with ordering from Tarptent? How long did it take? Did you need to pay taxes/customs?

I will be flying from Sydney to Tassie on the 14th of December and would like to take a TT Scarp 2 with me. Since I am traveling around at the moment, I do not have a permanent adress to which I could get the shipment ... does anyone have experience with getting imported good shipped to a parcel locker? Is that even possible if you need to pay tax/customs?

Thanks and kind regards
Tim

Got a TT delivery to my house in Sydney on Friday. Took 7 days. No taxes paid. Worth noting TTs printer must be faulty because it didn't print out the dollar value!

Ask TT directly (orders@tarptent.com) but I doubt they will deliver to a parcel locker.

It was over a year ago now, but my ProTrail Li took almost a month and went via Japan for some strange reason, despite paying for express delivery. Put it down to the ongoing woes of the pandemic. Our pre-pandemic delivered Double Rainbow Li got here here in under a week.

In neither case did we have to pay import duty, GST etc.

My recent order took about a week and no additional fees on import.

Update: The tent has arrived, which makes it about 10-11 days including seam sealing by TT. Delivery to a Australia Post Office was no problem (Parcel Collect, NOT Parcel Locker! UPS cannot deliver to a Parcel Locker)
