How to smuggle Sempervivums in different countries?

Post by I'm the 1 on Thu Sep 11, 2008 9:23 am

Smuggling for beginners

1. Be modest - try with small quantities
I normally send about 20 sempervivums per one post to non EU countries.

2. Don't send small parcel, send fat letter
I use plastic boxes - the one they use to store food - and I put semps wrapped in toilet paper (it is softer than paper towel!!!) in. I wrap the box in used newspaper and put it in a slightly bigger bubble envelope.

3. Make the letter look like teenage post or birthday present, not buisiness parcel
The custom office would not dare to harm a kid and ruin his/her birthday. But a parcel that looks like a business one - let's open it and see what's in there ...

4. Daclare it is a gift of small value
Sometimes you must put those green paper as a custom declaration on your mail. Write down a symolical value (2 or 3 €, dollars etc...) - because mail in which there are goods of certain value must go thru custome office before even leaving your country.
Declare the semps as a "decoration" (well, they are, aren't they?!).

5. Send it by priority mail
... if possible ....

From Slovenia to Croatia, Bosna & Hercegovina, USA and Canada it definitely works ... Now I am trying the trick with the rest of the Yugoslav countries ...
