The options when Shipping to USA from UK.

Full container load (FCL)

Exclusively utilizing container services is the optimal choice if you have enough items to completely fill the container, such as the contents of a 2 or 3-bedroom house or the furniture from a large office. If you require a faster delivery date or have ample cargo to fill a container, our team will bring the container directly to your location for loading.

Less than container Load (LCL)

If you don’t have enough items to fill an entire container, you may find the LCL (Less than Container Load) option suitable. With our shared container service, you’ll only be charged for the actual volume of cargo that you ship. This means that individuals moving household goods to the USA can make use of a shared container without needing to fill an entire container on their own.

Customs Duties when Shipping to USA from UK.

Duty Exemptions for Household and Personal Effects

You may import furniture, dishes, linens, libraries, artwork and similar household furnishings for your personal use free of duty. To be eligible for duty-free exemption, the articles must have either been available for your use or used in a household where you were a resident for one year. The year of use does not need to be continuous, nor does it need to be the year immediately before the date of importation.

Personal and household effects entitled to duty-free entry need not accompany you to the United States; you may have them shipped to your U.S. address at a later time if you choose. Your shipment of personal and/or household goods must be cleared through Customs at its first port of arrival.

This is a duty implemented by the U.S. Customs and Border on imported goods that are valued above USD 800.

The enforcement of this duty hinges on the nature and value of the imports to determine both the applicable duty on the goods and the type of clearance process they undergo:

Any imports above USD 800 will have to go through a conventional clearance at the customs, whereas eCommerce purchases that value between USD 800 and USD 2,500 (MYR3,720 to MYR 11,625, approximately) could enjoy a simplified clearance that involves minimal intervention from customs.

The import tariffs vary between 0% and 37.5 %, with 5.63% being the average. E-commerce purchases exceeding USD 2,500 will have a flat tariff rate of 3%.
