I think the general rule of thumb for importing to the states is that shipments valued under around $500 USD are not subject to duties etc. Some countries of origin charge Value Added Tax, though that is generally not a problem when importing from European Union Countries.
Please deal with reputable shippers that declare inbound shipments properly. Mis-labeling and intentional fraud are simply something you don't want to get caught up in. Make it clear to the shipper that you need to documentation to be accurate and match invoicing, payment arrangements etc.
Most inbounds from companies such as Dugdale and Acorn are FedEx or UPS. Those freight carriers have their own customs borkerage departments so it is unnecessary for you to post customs bonds or handle dock holdings or inspections. I know from experience that FedEx inbound shipments are held under a continuous bond and items usually go through a facility in TN before they are routed to you.
Since Acorn quotes at a price per meter delivered, try to take delivery of cut goods in a per project basis so any individual shipment will have a rather low value. If you have any specific questions, please advise and I will do my best to answer or help you find the answer.
