What importation assistance & advice can I get for entries subject to border controls?

We are able to assist importers & clearance agents in negotiating the release of shipments subject to detention by border control agencies such as Trading Standards and HMRC. This service may result in a significant reduction in the time and cost of detention. If you have a shipment which has been detained, perhaps as a Route 1, or Route 1s, then contact us to get a quote for our services.

What is route 1 and what is route 1s?

For more detail on this, click on the route 1 and route 1s page.

How can our importation solicitors help you?

If a decision is made to destroy a shipment, in whole or in part, we can intervene on your behalf with a view to minimising your losses and costs.

If all else fails we can litigate on your behalf in appropriate cases.

We are always available for advice on any matters of importation, including safety legislation relating to consumer products such as toys, electrical goods, perfumes and even machinery.
