Hi, as a Chinese supplier, I can give you accurate answer:
The shipping costs to Western European Countries are nearly the same.
If the product values more than 600 USD, you may need to pay the tax to clear the customs.
BUT if you buy from us, you won't pay any tax or any orders lower than $5,000 USD!
We have been in business for years. We know how to help our customers to waive the tax as much as possible in legal way.
