The customs procedures for international removals require knowledge and experience. At the same time, the individual differences in the individual removal projects must be considered. Error in the documentation in case of export or inaccuracies in execution of import of removal goods can lead to high costs and delays. It must be noted that for the customs procedures, one has to deal with the administrative authorities, who work very systematically and do not show any consideration for individual cases. The customs authorities have the option to interrupt the procedure significantly in case of complaints of ambiguity of the packing lists, no conformance with the package, and error during registration and missing documents.
“Preparation is half the rent”
One can generally make enough provision with neat and clean work, good preparation and good communication with the customers (relocating customers) and colleagues in importing or exporting country (according to from where and to where the removal takes place) and consider the peculiarities of the respective countries in order to achieve a smooth procedure.
Delays in Customs Procedures
In rare cases, the customs office stumbles upon individual cases, in which no mistakes have been made, more or less unprovoked, and one cannot get to know the particular case upon which the customs office has stumbled. For example, the country of origin, the contents of the packing lists and the personal data of the concerned person could have led to a heightened alert status at the customs.
The customs office generally has the option to subject the suspicious shipments to a CPA (Scanning) or also to carry out a physical inspection. The costs accruing for that are imposed upon the person who is relocating. However, the storage costs, e.g. at the port, which come into existence due to the delay are much higher. For such cases, we offer our customers quick alternative storage solutions and try to keep the additional charges as low as possible.
