A lot can go wrong when you are importing. There are an infinite number of problems that can go wrong and for a newbie, it will be a headache, if not costly exercise if you lose your stock or if you have to deal with unfamiliar problems.

An example of an issue is the stink bug infestation that has been plaguing imports. See below for reference.

If you are merely importing small quantities, then the risk is lower and it may be worthwhile DIY. Assess the risk and proceed at your own risk is what I am saying.
