We usually just put the cash register reciept under clear tape on the outside of the box for customs to see. They really appreciate when you try not to bypass the rules and have been very fair with the amounts charged.

That would be the easiest way, but it would greatly help if you enclosed some type of verifiction of what they would cost. If they have no proof of cost, they set it themselves. Maybe you could go to a local fishing goods store and have them make up a reciept for you.

I would put a very small amount of money. I shipped some items down last year. YOu will be VERY shocked and what it costs. The items I send were school supplies. So, yes they were heavy. But two boxes cost $100 US to ship down. Then another $40US to pick up at the post office in SP.

luvphins, indeed I absolutely would not be shocked at Custom's charges based on declared values, any more than I am shocked by what is not avail. on Caribbean islands nor by what it costs to ship items to such locales. Which is why I'm A) shipping relatively inexpensive U.S.-avail but impossible-to-find-on-AC lures to someone who will use them to fortify his AC-based tourist biz and B)seeking advice from helpful folks on this Board, which I used for months in planning a wonderful visit to AC last year. Thus, I do appreciate useful advice, as always!

Caribtraveler, if you want to send them to me, I will be going down on 2/7 and would be happy to include them in my luggage, and deliver them to the expecting party. Just let me know who, and how to get in touch with them. I will be there for a month, so I'm sure will find them...let me know if I can help.
