    Hi. Trophies from 2017 & 2018 are crated and at shipper in South Africa. I need a reputable customs broker for JFK, New York. Any good suggestion? Any to avoid? Thanks in advance.

    Without a doubt Safari Specialty Importers. They do all of my person imports and business imports. I’d be glad to pm you the contact info if you’d like.

    +1 on Safari Speciality Importers. They cleared the trophies from two of my trips and were great to deal with.

    Thanks to all. I contacted SSI and they were on it in a New York minute!! Sent me the forms immediately, were quick to respond to my questions, have an off-airport facility which will save me time and money. I am especially concerned about a quick return as my hunting partner of 2018 has cancer and is dying and I am confident they will do all they can. Wyatt is the best and they will be my goto Broker in 2019 and 2020.

    SSI all the way. I've used them for my last three safaris. They handle everything from outfitter to taxidermist. All my stuff comes into L.A. and on to Reno. Any problems, they take care of it. Great folks and easy to work with.
