Shipping to America is a really easy, hassle-free process when the right preparation has been completed. Dubai Movers will expert shipping, a company in Dubai, will help you to identify what is necessary to get your parcel into the United States, regardless if you are a first-time shopper or business regular.
When shipping to the US all goods must go through Customs to be cleared. This, therefore, means that you will need a Customs Invoice for your shipment. This document will determine how much tax and duties you will need to pay – so ensure it is completed properly and clearly. For example, when completing the form, make sure to accurately describe each item included in the package. Instead of saying that your package contains ‘clothes’, write ‘t-shirts for boys aged 10-12’.
The better the accuracy, the speedier the process – US Customs is notorious for its due-diligence. No duties or taxes will be applied if the total parcel value is below certain thresholds. For example, the Gift value threshold is $200. If you are sending a gift to the US then declare the item as an unsolicited gift on the invoice, its complete description and value. Make sure to send your gift to a residential address and not a US business address, otherwise you will have to pay duties and tax. The Formal Clearance threshold is $2,500. This means that if your shipment is worth over $2,500, it will be subject to delays as it goes through formal clearance. Dubai Movers provide FCL, LCL, Group-age for shipping.
Full Container Load (FCL)
If a Customer has goods to accommodate in one full container load, we suggest him to book an FCL (Full Container Load) to stuff his cargo. In an FCL cargo, the complete goods in the said container own by one shipper. In an FCL owned by one shipper, the cargo in the container need not have fully loaded cargo in the container. Let the cargo be half loaded or quarter loaded container, if booked by one shipper under one shipment, the said shipment is called FCL shipment.
Less than Container Load (LCL)
If a shipper does not have enough goods to accommodate in one full container, he can book cargo with a consolidator to console his goods along with goods of other shippers. This type of shipment is called LCL shipment.
