As a British Crown Dependency, Guernsey is not an EU member. Therefore, there is no import VAT or Duty to pay when shipping from the UK, so long as the goods sent were manufactured or obtained in the UK. However, customs documentation is still required for the shipment. Visit the Guernsey customs website for more information.
Guernsey is one of the closest overseas destinations for delivering business and commercial cargo via road freight. We offer unbeatable shipping rates on our express services, groupage services, and specialist handling services for export/ import, including large machinery and awkward shapes or sizes to locations including Brecqhou, Capelles, Duval, L’Islet, La Collinette, La Tonelli, La Tour, Les Martins, Newtown, Rousse, St. Anne, St Germain and others.
Our 3-4 day groupage to Guernsey is a popular economic delivery service, however, we also offer express road freight for urgent cargo. We ship via our extensive network of depots across the UK, providing door-to-door haulage delivery to Guernsey. We guarantee fast delivery of urgent import/ export consignments.
Guernsey-side, some large deliveries require special care and expertise due to tight and winding local roads and vehicle size restrictions. With extensive networks of small streets across Guernsey, large deliveries require special care and expertise, including multiple drops, as some areas have vehicle size restrictions. We can provide tail lift vehicles or a Hiab (crane lorry) for those without forklift access. We can organise challenging shipments, whether big, tall, long, high, cube, heavy, awkward, unusual items or machinery.
We ship EU and UK pallet and carton groupage to Guernsey. We can handle printers pallets, wooden pallets, plastic pallets, 120×100 and 120×80 centimetre base pallets, stackable and non-stackable pallets, shrink and stretch wrapped goods, crates, skids, or stillages.
Barrington Freight are your professional and experienced forwarders to the Channel Islands, known in French as the “Bailliage de Guernesey”. Heavily influenced by the proximity to France, laying just 45km (28 miles) from Normandy and French, it still has a Gallic ambience. You may hear the ancient local dialect of Dgernesiais (Norman patois) still being used if you listen carefully.
Lush botanic gardens, hidden beach coves, and glorious sunsets over the Atlantic give Guernsey a distinctly sub-tropical feel. There are more than a few quirky gems to explore such as the Little Chapel and Castle Cornet, and french literary great Victor Hugo’s house (owned by the city of Paris), attracting international visitors. As a bailiwick (a district area or jurisdiction), Guernsey embraces the ten parishes of Castel, Forest, St Andrew, St Martin, St Peter Port, St Pierre du Bois, St Sampson, St Saviour, Torteval and Vale, plus the islands of Alderney and Sark (each with its own parliament), Herm, Jethou and Lihou.
Barrington is the premier freight forwarder to Guernsey, offering exceptional shipping rates beyond the parishes and islands to towns and villages like Brecqhou, Capelles, Duval, L’Islet, La Collinette, La Tonelle, La Tour, Les Martins, Newtown, Rousse, St. Anne, and St Germain.
GBG haulage (Great Britain-Guernsey) includes all the basics: consumer goods, food and drink, alcohol, motor vehicles and spares, computers and accessories, white goods, and manufactured goods. Major imports include coal, petrol, oil, machinery and equipment, whilst primary exports include cut flowers and tomatoes. We look forward to helping you organise and ship your full or part cargo load and assure you that freight to Guernsey is safe in our hands.
Our express road freight vans are used for urgent shipping, through which we provide express door-to-door delivery via our extensive UK network of local depots. We guarantee to provide the fastest delivery of urgent consignments for export and import between Guernsey and the UK, via St Peter Port in Guernsey from a choice of South Coast ports including Portsmouth, Poole, and Weymouth.
The exact pickup and drop of locations determine road freight transit times to Guernsey. We aim to deliver 3-4 days for groupage and full load. Specific delivery timing depends on customs compliance.
