Import Management is our core service. Quite simply put; we become an extension of your company in that we are purchasing your products on your behalf and importing them to the UK. To do this yourself means you have to find and manage your supplier, book foreign currency payments, book your UK Import shipments, ensure you have your paper work in order, and organise payments to HMRC before delivery. You would need to be working with at least four different companies to achieve this. By using The Import House you work with just one.
Experts in our Field
All we do every day is Import Management – we are the foremost specialists in our field. We quickly find the right source for your product, selected from our list of approved global suppliers. We can negotiate price because of our buying power, and these savings are passed on to our clients. Our UK import service allows us to manage your production and our people on the ground conduct inspections in person, making importing to the UK easy for your business.
We ship samples quickly, efficiently, and affordably through our established logistics chain. Thanks to our long-term partnerships in foreign currency and private banking, we pay suppliers in USD within 24 hours. We offer excellent freight rates because we own an established freight forwarding company, and our infrastructure and import licenses allow us to deliver anywhere in the world.
