    At the request of commercial retailers, Customs is cracking down on the mportation of clothing. How long it lasts is anybody's guess, just know that at some point you may receive a call from the shipper regarding taxes due.

    This does not affect those who send a minimal amount of clothes in a barrel or box with other items, but rather barrels or boxes that are obvious to Customs to be commercial in nature.

    No so off. We usually pay $25-30 for 55 gallon barrel, 40 gallon less, then $115 shipping.*
