PLACING LARGE ORDERS WITH BODYLINE.

I'm about to place an order with Bodyline at the value of $1200 AUD (Australian dollars).
$200 of that is purely shipping IF i chose EMS.

How long has EMS orders taken to get to YOU? (What are your experiences, do share ^_^)
And how long has Airmail taken to get to you? (What are your experiences, do share ^_^)
If you're from Australia i'd particularly appreciate hearing from you.

The reason I ask is because i heard Airmail is a two week wait and it IS tracked ensuring safety (?). But on Japan postal it only says one week. So in hindsight i'd rather save $200 off EMS if Airmail truly took this short amount of time to arrive, however with the value of my order some would say EMS would be a good way to go regardless? (Share your opinions)

Another question I have is, my package can be marked down to $722 AUD. Australian customs say packages over $1000 is where you have to pay a custom tax. Though they say this GENERALLY so it's hard to know whether I won't be charged or not due to such a high value coming in. What are people's tax experiences on huge order? (Once again if you're from Australia, would love to hear from you particularly.)

Thanks guys ^_^
