Recommend a Customs Clearing Agent

Post by IndianaJones » Wed 30 Nov 2016, 13:43

Hi guys

Would someone please recommend a reliable customs clearing agent, whom you have dealt with?

Preferably an agent in Cape Town, but I suppose they can work from anywhere.


Regards

Hi IndianaJones,

I once had a problem with stuff at customs and I contacted these guys.

http://www.xdp.co.za/index.html

I can't remember if it was Jacques v/d Merwe or Gerald Nagel, but he said he'll just walk across the road to customs office and hear what their story is. Not much later I got a call and he said every thing is sorted and I can collect my stuff and if there is more problems in future I must contact him. Just like that, every thing sorted.

From their website I copy and paste.

You will find that we have quite a few “differentiating factors” that puts us head-and-shoulders above the rest! These include



•a mobile office the Cape Town International Airport, which allows us to clear, release and forward your cargo on the same day (subject to customs working hours of course…but if they are working, so are we).
•we are a Medium-Sized Group with Large Company Muscle
•our Mentorship Program
•Our desire and ability to “also cater for the small guy”

Thank you for the suggestion Werner, I'll contact them.

But the contact details of someone with experience of container and/or RoRo shipping would also be appreciated.
