Just managed to find the tab at the top right to convert currency. It's telling me the above rack that you stated £1900 is infact £1,276.06?

Kind regards,
Scott

Then add vat and import duty and the very high shipping costs, storage and somthing for your efforts and i can assure you it will not be viabal as a business. There is one importer in europe already and we did have the rainbow rock co in the uk till they went bust.

It is fare easyer to buy uk built racks form pro racks or the vision racks via euro rep. Even the uk has seen a few makers come and go, infact while on subject any one know if win racks is still going?

How are you planning to ship them? rainbow rock only did them as a side line to fill the space in containers of rock they bought in from the states (there trade was aqurium gravals and the like).

You are going to need a lot of money to bring stock in to start of and remember the power diffrence witch could lead to a few legal issues (there 110v where we are 240v and as such may not be legal for sale in uk).

Really would depend on final price inc everything to see if its worth while compared to say a pro rack of equal size. But as above its the cb70s stack I would be interested in. But a couple of single stacks instead of the triples.
