Ship to Mexico (Queretaro) or Ship to USA (Florida)?

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

I am very interested to buy an Ultimaker 2, but I would like to know if this Ultimaker store ships to Mexico (Querétaro City), and in this case how much time is the estimated delivery time? What happen with tax cost to import it? I have another alternative; this is ship to United States to Mail box Etc central after that send it to México. Which are your recommendations?

Thanks in advance

The lead time for an Ultimaker 2 from the Ultimaker store shows 3-4 weeks. I recently bought a printer from http://www.dynamism.com/ which is located in the United States. They typically have the printers in stock and will ship outside of the United States. I found this method cheaper than ordering direct as I did not have to pay import taxes living in the U.S. myself. Dynamism got my printer to me in just a few days which is much quicker than the estimated lead time in the Ultimaker store. If you ordered from Ultimaker and had them ship to the U.S. and then to Mexico I would assume you would be paying import taxes twice and it would take much longer to get to you as it would have to clear customs twice.

I would recommend checking out Dynamism and seeing if they are cheaper overall. The taxes on the import will probably be between 3 and 5% of the price of the printer and you will have to pay the import fees to the company that delivers your package when they arrive. This technically makes it a CoD delivery which will require a signature and a check written to them for the amount before they will give you the package (it will probably require one anyway because of the price). Make sure to ship it to a location you will be present when it arrives.

They shipped my machine the same day I ordered it and it arrived in perfect condition. They do require a confirmed address and a signature upon delivery. I actually could not pick it up from the local Fedex store either as it was required to be delivered to the address specified so ship it somewhere where you can be sure someone will be there to sign for it. The overall ordering process was quick and easy and their prices seemed good. They included a free spool of blue CPE filament with my order as well as the spool that normally comes with the machine. I would have preferred a second spool of PLA over the CPE, but free filament is free filament :).

Also the Extended is what I purchased and I do not regret it as it is so much easier to work on any problems with the extra room.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
