The shipment tracking information is updated daily, just says "Shipment Held In Warehouse. Follow Up Actions Underway." The box is addressed to my instructor and had been sitting in the JFK warehouse six days now. Is this normal? Anything to be concerned about?

    The instructor is officially the importer (and imported under his SS#), so don;t get involved you could make things worse... TNT is a reliable international freight company, th key word being freight.. This is not an expedited shipment where as some of the normal channels are bypassed and duties/charges get billed later.. Everything has to be completed up front, and if TNT is acting as the broker (instead of a personal brokerage service) then all the paperwork like power of attourney needs to be in order... I find it usually takes at least 1 week to clear, sometimes more... alot of times customs tries to get more money than they deserve and you have to go back and forth a few times.. for a rEvo, there should be no duty (but customs usually tries).. In the end, all that has to be passed on to the student is the broker and handling fee which is usually under $100... Things could get complicated IF customs wants to play hardball as some parts of the rEvo technically could be dutied even though the end product is a duty free product... last product I imported, customs insisted in charging me duty on the valves I had listed on the documents...
