What if I have new items in there?

Any new products are likely subject to an import tax. Commercial Invoices will be required; this will not count as part of a house hold goods shipment seeking a tax free entry. This could cause an inspection of all the goods in the container from Customs therefore we strongly recommend you ship any new product or goods separately
