Shopping for a German Cuckoo Clock?

If you're buying a German cuckoo clock, make sure that the clock is legally imported. If you are thinking about buying from a German website, ask them first how much Import Duty you will have to pay upon delivery.

Some German websites won't tell you that you'll have to pay an extra $100 or so when the clock is delivered to your door. Or, they'll try to circumvent the cost for you by misrepresentation on the Customs form - that, of course, is a felony.

You don't have that problem with North Coast Imports products. Of course, all  of our German clocks are imported legally, and we already paid the proper Duty. So, you won't have any surprises from us or our dealers!

Not only that, but we fully warranty all of our clocks for two years and take care of any problems in our own shop in Ohio. You won't have to send any clocks back to Germany when you buy a North Coast Imports clock!


  1. its only 3-8% of the price

  2. Of course, but considering the price of fine clocks, 6-8% is usually around $100. It's a surprise to be confronted with that bill if you weren't expecting it.

    Plus, no matter the price, it's illegal to misrepresent the value of merchandise on the Customs form.

  3. Worthy clock information! I've read your article "Shopping for a German Cuckoo Clock? ". Great sharing!
