Any British firm that would like to import goods from South Carolina but is not sure of the best way to proceed should consider the benefits of a top freight forwarding firm like Barrington Freight. This way, you can take the hassle out of arranging for the transportation of your orders from the state to the UK. Even better, our experienced operations team has specialist knowledge of South Carolina to help with the swift movement of goods from this part of the United States. We have been handling South Carolinian imports for decades and can help your firm to run a cost-effective importation operation from suppliers in the state, too.

There are plenty of big manufacturing names with plants in South Carolina. BMW, Boeing and GE are all manufacturers with a significant role to play in the economy of the state, for example. There are also numerous smaller manufacturing facilities that make both finished consumer goods as well as assemblies and components that can be used in the UK. As such, buying from firms in South Carolina can be cost-effective so long as the shipment of consignments to the UK is not too costly. This is exactly why it is so often advantageous to ask Barrington Freight for help.

Importing from south carolina (and the other way too)

If you ask your supplier to send goods from South Carolina to Britain for you, then the chances are the service will be slow and relatively expensive. However, if you ask us to have your goods collected from manufacturing centres like Columbia, Greenville, Summerville and Camden, for example, then you will often spend a great deal less. We have the local contacts to negotiate better terms and produce faster results. Typically South Carolinian imports will pass through the container port at Charleston but we may also use Savannah or Wilmington, both outside of the state, if it is more convenient.

Place Your Trust in Barrington Freight for South Carolina Imports

As members of the British International Freight Association (BIFA), we offer a level of professionalism that other freight forwarders do not. We are proud of our BIFA accreditation and we will think you will notice the difference if you choose to allow us to handle your South Carolinian importation processes for you.

Ensure Swift Importation Processes for South Carolina Shipments

We deal with all sorts of loads when importing from South Carolina. If you have a few spare automotive sector parts on a pallet, for instance, then we will arrange for them to be put on board a vessel in a container with other deliveries bound for the UK. We can also deal with full container loads and even orders that take up multiple containers. Please note that our international freight licenses allow us to arrange the transit of goods through US customs, as well.

Furthermore, if you require it, then we can offer you an additional service that will help with UK border officialdom, too. As customs clearance agents we can take care of all of your company’s HMRC declarations. This means we will complete your paperwork and online filing to ensure your South Carolina imports are not held up at the port when they get to the UK.

We are friendly, easy to work with, honest and we do not charge the earth.

The team at Barrington where incredible at delivering our goods on-time despite the new Brexit regulations on goods being imported. We even didn't pay tax on the returning shipment coming back to German.

Brilliant service. Extremely helpful, and they supported us all the way through the process of transporting goods to mainland Europe, which for anyone who hasn't done that before can seem quite daunting. Would definitely recommend using this company.

We are very satisfied, we would like to thank the team for this with an awesome rating! They handled the delivery of a very sensitive, valuable, gigantic pallet for us at a fair price and without any problems. I mean, out of 4 companies, only they were able to undertake it. Nothing is damaged! We recommend the company to everyone :)
