Customs Clearances Via Southampton

Because we operate as customs clearance agents at all of the UK’s major ports, we know exactly how to fill out invoice declarations and so on. This means that when customs officials come to inspect your consignment(s) at the port, they will see what they need so that your shipment can continue on its way.

All too often, exporting firms either do not have sufficient in-house knowledge of the workings at Southampton port or do not have the right skills to complete customs declarations correctly. Given that all road shipments to continental Europe need to undergo checks before they board cross-channel services, like those at Southampton, getting such paperwork in good order is essential. If not, the customs officer in charge of your goods’ inspection may decide to delay your items until he or she is satisfied that your firm can make the necessary clarifications. In some cases, it could be even worse for you, as well as your intended customer, because the whole consignment may be impounded at the port.

At Barrington Freight, we will provide you with a wealth of experience dealing with all of these issues on your behalf to help ensure a swift departure of your shipment. By ensuring that the correct online declarations have been made that match properly with the consignment’s accompanying paperwork, customs officials will have no good reason to cause a hold-up. As such, your European customers will be able to expect their delivery on the timescale you had originally planned.

I FOUND BARRINGTON FREIGHT AFTER EMAILING MANY OTHERS, SOME OF THEM (UPS,DHL,FEDEX) SIMPLY TOOK SO LONG TO CONTACT ME, THAT IT BECAME STUPID, SIMON AT BARRINGTON CAME BACK TO ME VIRTUALLY STRAIGHT AWAY WITH A VERY GOOD PRICE, ALSO GOOD SHIPPING TIMES. NOW A SERVICE IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE RESULTS, AND THEY WERE AS GOOD AS THEIR WORD. HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THEM AND SIMON AT BARRINGTON FREIGHT WILL BE THE FIRST PERSON WE GO TO NEXT TIME, WELL DONE!!
