Air sense S10 Autoset from US to Australia
04-26-2016, 03:23 PM
I've just had a look $50 was the import duty as the value was over $1000AU. I was expecting that charge as I had completed an import duty calculator online prior to making the purchase. $33 was an IQIS charge wish I wasn't expecting. When I googled it, it's a charge by the courier for Quarantine Inspection processing fee. I'm not going to complain though, I am super impressed with the service they provided and overall I still saved over $1000 by purchasing from the US, even though the machine was made in Australia.

It may be a non issue but the model sold here in the USA does have a cellular modem to transmit data to your sleep doctor and it will not work in Aus. So if need be you will have to bring your data card into your doctor. Also as some have stated the warranty maybe an issue as well. But hell, who cares it is so much cheaper RIGHT

Yeah, I'm not too worried about not being able to use the cellular modem. I've got the sd card that I can get the data from. The warranty was a risk I was prepared to take. Fingers crossed I don't have any dramas with it.

Thanks Ronni from a fellow Aussie. My loaner deal runs out in Early June and I've had a few questions about importing a new machine. You've answered a lot of those questions with your post. I now feel confident to go ahead and order.
I've got a MyPost account so the Fedex guys or whomever will deliver straight to that I hope.
I haven't looked at Supplier #8 yes so that might also be a bonus.

I'm glad I've been able to help. It was so easy. Something else I didn't mention, I saved an additional 10% by searching for a coupon code online, where you enter the code at the end of the transaction. It was Supplier #10 that I used, not sure if the others have them too.
