Customs Clearance for International Removals

Andrew Porter Ltd will take care of all relevant paperwork and customs clearance for your international move, making life easier for you. 

Along with our partner companies we strive to undertake and complete customs clearance as quickly as possible, but we are limited in the role we can play to have goods cleared and delivered to you within a set time frame.

Charges

Customs clearance can sometimes be slow, especially if customs decide to inspect your shipment.  This will usually not only result in delays, but also customs may charge you for services such as X-ray, cleaning, inspection, quarantine fees and more.  These charges are unpredictable and cannot be quoted for prior to arrival in your host country. The normal process is for these to be paid by you locally before customs will release your goods.

Any local customs or duty charges will be charged to your account for any goods that come under taxable guidelines.  This changes from country to country and we can provide information on this at the time of quotation.

Andrew Porter Ltd can provide you with information on customs regulations at your destination country to allow you to make the necessary preparations.
