Does librem have a logistical office in Europe?


#1

I will probably order librem 5 soon.
Since i do not reside in the US, can i arrange to pick it up
somewhere in Europe so as to avoid the headache of being dependent
on shipping and custom constraints and schedule ?


#2

The campaign page mentions “European reseller” and “free worlwide shipping”.
I parse that as “within the Schengen area, no aditional cost/tax/custom fees should be expected”

For GB, it might depend on whether the phone is actually shipped in January or after Brexit…

(In contrast to above article, GB is shown as “cooperating” in the German Wikipedia article).

Can you specify who and where is this European reseller located ?
contact information would be appreciated

No details were published on the Europen reseller. I could only speculate that it might be https://www.floss-shop.de, the shop run by @nicole.faerber, Head of Mobile.

However, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. I ordered my Librem 13 from the US, not floss-shop, and it went very smooth. I just had to pay the import taxes to the delivery man.
So, I guess the worst that could happen (if no European reseller) is that you have to pay ~100€ to to delivery man.

I can confirm that You can order via this shop. They manage all the custom procedures. I received my Librem without any issues.
I live in Germany.
