Customs Formalities

Customs regulations and documentation can be complex and confusing. Starline employs professional freight forwarders who understand all facets of international moving, including customs clearance, international documentation and air and sea freight. When you move with Starline your International Move Manager will guide you through the process.

While your shipment is in the process of clearing customs it is important that you make yourself available to answer questions and, if necessary, provide additional documentation. It is also important to understand that duties can and may be levied against your goods.
