Random topic - size of GruppeM packing

Post by mark seeker » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:06 am

I am planning to order a GruppeM for my Zed and was hoping to carry it on my carry-on luggage, does anyone know the rough size of it including the packaging?

Thanks in advance

Roughly 600mm W x 400mm H x 400mm D
Though that was delivered and there was another box inside slightly smaller though if u empty the box it will fit in a rucksack.

It would be a sight, "any cigarettes or alcohol to declare?" Non, just a couple of GruppeM's weighing me down :D

That's a pretty massive reduction for induction!

Yeah. Cheaper than the Eventuri, though there is the unknown additional cost of shipping and import duty.

Edit: shipping came out at £84 for me just now. Using an online duty calculator, the whole lot came out at £843 shipped including VAT and import tax.

C A Technologies replied to me immediately this morning to say that they could beat the Gruppe M Direct price. I had only just calculated the £843 price above when C A Technologies replied with the same calculated price. They said they could offer it at £810 posted. That's a decent saving, though still much more than that attractive £565 sticker price you found, Mark!

So how much does that work out with shipping and is there any import tax to pay?
