    so am i right in thinking is that all i have to do to do some importing from the usa, is go shopping for whatever goods you need and click on one of the couriers above and they will deliver whatever i have orderd to me in the uk, please please tell me im'e right, put it this way, my dreams are to by some kiddies clothes and adult clothes from lets say wwwefashionwholesale whome i se quite alot on this web site, so i can hope that they are ok to deal with, and i have orderd from there overstock lots,
    100pcs childrens clothes $450
    100pcs highend womens clothes $600
    20pcs designer sunglasses $440

    could anyone give me an idear in what i will end up paying after all the taxes have been paid, i am not vat registerd , so i do realise that i cannot claim it back, and i cant se myself going over the £60k threshold,
    been reading lot and lots of threads and even contacted the hrmc online and read there import and export file "breaking down barriers" and the c88 form, and to be honest its all very confusing to me, my main intention is to try the party plan side of buisiness, as i no a girlfriend that used to work for someone that sold tupperware, but she would very much like to try with me to have a go on our own, so all your wisdome will be moore than helpfull many thanks and appollagise for my ramblings

    C88

    I'm a bit confused about the C88 as well. By reading the HMRC website, you'd think it was an essential part of the import process, but it's hardly mentioned at all here. The impression here is that you just let the courier deal with it all and pay the bill. Maybe they ask for your VAT number or pseudo TURN at some point but that's all. Can anyone clarify this?

    Does anyone know/use any courier companies in the UK that will deliver large/heavy parcels to prviate addresses - I mean for example items like gym equipment or furniture which could weigh 50 kilos or more for home delivery? Most courier companies will only handle packages weighing 30 kilos or less.

    I prefer UPS, they have friendly customer service and they offer better rates.

    Many of those listed are UK companies.

    When buying from the US you will usually be limited to the shipping services offered by the seller. Many have contracts with one or two companies and will only use those companies.

    The usual options on parcels are the US Postal Service (USPS), UPS, FedEx and DHL. That is pretty much it. And even then, if the company has a deal with UPS, they may not bother with DHL, even if you request it.

    The company I did most of my business with had no options. They had 4 methods - USPS to post office boxes only. UPS for other ground deliveries, DHL for Rush or 2nd day and USPS Priority for Alaska, Hawaii and US possessions. Period. Take it or go buy somewhere else.

    If you need to post something on the large or heavy side, you might want to try ukbackloads.com
    I have used them a couple of times and had no problems.

    I would recommend using any Freight Forwarding company that are reliable. They are some much much more cheaper then well known courier services.

    Usually by large quantity you can get a better rate using "Freight Forwarding" company which it will go via Air Cargo.

    If you are using small quantites then they are many options out there.
