surely no company would deliver an item and allow you to pay later!

and £104 sounds far too low (VAT would be £80 on its own).

calc here shows about £160 in charges

Yeah 104 Seems about Right, UPS take a commission for paying and getting the item released from customs.

If you do not want to wait It's possible you can ring the Depot which is currently holding your package and pay over the phone to get your Item sooner.

You will have to pay first. The brokerage team will either call you before the delivery is made so you can pay by card or you can pay the driver when he delivers if you phone the call centre. The UPS customs fee was around £12 I think but this was about 5 years ago when I used to work for them.

I've had loads of stuff delivered by UPS, Fedex, DHL over the years and never had to pay upfront - always got an invoice a week or two later

UPS must have changed from when I was there then because they would never deliver to non-account holders without customs charges being paid for first.
