    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to figure out the best way for me to get a lot of stock from China into the UK. I've done this before with sunglasses and was making a killing, then finally after a big shipment this drops through the door:

    Since then I've got a new supplier, new address and new recipient details. This time I'm hoping to import watches. I've had joy with China Post, but it's a little slow (about 30 days in my experience) for my liking. Anyone have experience bringing in large quantities under the radar? Ideally I'd like to get around 10/20 per shipment.

    It's very risky to export large quantity of replicas in China. If someone send small amount and get caught, nothing too bad will happen. But if someone send large amount out and get caught, he'll be in prison. Anyways, good luck, hope you can find someone who can cover the risk. :)

    you are right, the China post is slow, sometimes, it will take more than 30 days. Maybe 40 days

    It's easy actually.You need to ship with a bigger company like UPS,Fedex,DHL because when these companies bring the packages through customs there is a 10% chance they will open it.At postal offices they usually check the box if the value declared is low.I only got caught one time with DHL shipping 50 Dr.Dre headphones in a 22kg box which was declared at $40 :D.But after some discussions they let the package go.
