    The export of personal and household effects is often needing more time to explain the process and what is possible and what is smart. It is true to say that it is probably the only time the customer will have to arrange and navigate moving home to another country and with the stresses and strains it is often complicating the process.

    HM Revenue and Customs have tightened up the rules and regulations when importing personal effect and household effects into the United Kingdom. Transfer of Residence, abbreviated to ToR, is the online application for the importation without payment of duties and taxes for your personal good.

    The application is detailed and complexed and should be done prior to your consignment departing for the United Kingdom to avoid storage charges.

    “Jason and his team are fantastic and I thoroughly recommend them.

    I have asked them to take care of both import from Africa to the UK and export from the UK to Europe. In every instance, everything was done in a timely and cost-conscious manner.I was kept abreast of any relevant developments throughout the process and the goods were delivered in good order and on time.

    Jason also took the time to walk me through the murky vagueries of shipping in advance so as to avoid incurring additional costs.

    A pleasure to deal with a shipping company that truly own the process.”
