    Ocean freight extra charges for clearing?

    That's what I thought , and what happened last time. I don't know why they would have told me this or why it would make a difference to them one way or the other. Oh well....

    Ocean freight extra charges for clearing?

    Thanks for your input. I have talked to both of them before at either Dallas or Vegas, nice folks. What I heard from that email was quite alarming. Will go with air if it is true, but don't understand why it would be so via ocean freight and not air... ???

    Ocean freight extra charges for clearing?

    Hi All, This may be covered in another thread but I did not see anything as current as I would like, so pardon me if it is redundant . Our last trophy shipment is sitting in a warehouse in Joberg awaiting us to get settled in a new home before shipment. I had originally told them I wanted to...

    What to do if you need to store your trophies in their crate?

    Thanks everyone. I also received an email from the shipper in SA. They said they would hold off on the shipping and be glad to hold our shipment in their warehouse at no extra charge until we are ready. It might take a little longer than they are thinking, but I wrote them back and let them know...

    What to do if you need to store your trophies in their crate?

    Thanks All, I emailed the shipper in Africa but have not heard back. I am going to use ocean freight because I am not in a hurry so I will use Fauna & Flora to clear. Talked to a lady with them yesterday and she said if when it gets here and is ready to ship to me and I am still not ready that...

    What to do if you need to store your trophies in their crate?

    Hey All, We have our house up for sale and have moved the trophies we had into a climate controlled storage building. Our trophies from our last trip to Africa are ready to ship and we will not be able to accept them here until we sell the house and get settled in a new one. So we need to have...

    First experience with the new firearms export system

    Well, from the looks of all this confusion, I imagine I will start with some cheap vodka, work my way up to a fine scotch like Glendronach and then finish with a little vodka to calm down. This kind of indecisive, no one knows whats going on, government crap really gets under my skin. Sorry but...

    First experience with the new firearms export system

    Ok guys. I am hearing that we have to do all this now, and then I am hearing that you don't have to yet. When we got our 4457 forms from Customs, the agent said there were new regulations but they were not being enforced yet and no one seemed to know when or if they would be. We are going in...
