    HI guys,

    Quick question. I am about to ship 50 watches to myself and I do not want to get caught by customs. Any tips on how to avoid it? Fake name, my address. Fake name and friends address? What do you guys do to prevent from being caught./

    Someone told me the UK customs are not so bad. What if I ship it to the UK and have someone over there ship it to me in the EU? Any experience with that?

    UK customs are as bad as the rest of the EU (except Sweden, they're especially bad)

    50 watches though, all that's gonna happen if they're found, is they're gonna be confiscated. You won't get in trouble, tbh. However, why not just get decent looking watches that aren't replicas?

    Depends on the value of the watches. If they are cheap stuff then just declare a very low value on them and pay the small bit of tax. If they are expensive watches I would get them sent in batches and make sure the sender marks them as used/ repairs

    I always ship in batches, never have large packages arrive here. But I just want to know IF there is a smart way to ship 50 of them. I guess I will just do that again and spread them over a few addresses with different names as well.
