Default Importing from Europe and US....

Has anyone detailed knowledge of the extra costs now incurred when importing old radios, etc from Europe.Specifically France,Spain, Germany. I have horror stories from a friend in Belgium about the amount of duty he has been charged for relatively low value items?! Also the import/export situation in the USA seems to vary dependant upon how the article is shipped and the declared value (obviously!) The easy answer would be to declare everything as a gift but I'm sure this would become unstuck.
As a frequent buyer of miscellaneous articles, component and modules from China the businesses there seem to have a "special" arrangement regarding duty as the shipping times are usually very good and any duty seems a bit hit and miss--although I might just have been lucky!
