I’m moving back to Taiwan this summer, and I want to know if I should buy this in the US and take it with me (we are renting a container) or buy something equivalent in TW. My wife says they are cheaper in Taiwan, but I’m not so sure.
Any ideas? Prices?[/quote]
Are you sure that your warranty will be good in Taiwan? Even a “great” brand name like Dell has been known to ship defective products. And as another poster mentioned, the possibility of damage in shipping should be considered.
I had a friend who bought a desktop computer in the States because it was cheaper, took it on the aircraft as checked baggage, and it never made it (stolen apparently). The airlines are limited to US$400 liability, so he had to eat it. With a shipping container I realize it’s a different story.
By the way, you’re goods will have to go through customs. I have no idea whether or not they will tax something like this. Generally they don’t tax “personal effects” taken on an airplane, but shipping containers get more scrutiny.
