    Uno dei più professionali sia nell'imballaggio, sia nel rilascio di certificazioni. Peccato solo che la spedizione dalla Svizzera sia lenta e che io abbia pagato rilevanti spese doganali

    Excellent! Everything very carefully packed and with full documentation. Thanks! One minor negative thing: douane import duties are not mentioned as possible additional costs and this was about 20%.
