"Note that as of this week, due to a lot of people losing their way in the UK, brexit has kicked in and all parts that you order will be subject to French VAT that Chronopost or others will collect from you along with a handling fee"

Also due to Brexit, customs are being implemented on parts. I recently ordered an air trunking from Paul Matty and customs took as much as the part itself.... not a huge amount as the part is cheap but still frustrating!!!!

Remember the parts you buy in UK should be LESS VAT so when you pay TVA in France it puts the price back to where it was.
The Problem is "le frais de Douane" and charges that pump up the price a lot.
Also to have: Packing List + Waybill+ Transport Label etc. Also if big needs to be on a Wooden Pallet or in Crate with Certification to ISPM 15 (international certification) because UK is outside EU.
International Transport like the rest of the World which was the Brexit choice made.
