As experienced customs clearance agents, our highly trained and experienced team simplifies the process of import and export.
However large or small the shipment, we’re a trusted single source provider that can handle all global logistic needs. For additional convenience, customs clearance can be integrated with our other movement, freighting, storage or case making services.
Alban Shipping can provide a specialist insurance policy to protect your valuables should an accident occur. Our policy offers comprehensive insurance for works of art, antiques, collectables and other items from the time we collect them to the time they are delivered to your door.
Our drivers carry digital cameras with them and make visual notes of any damage prior to our collection. These pictures will be passed onto the client for their consideration. Please click here for further details.
Alban Shipping have expertise in documentation specific to art and antiques. We ensure your items are exported correctly. From UK export licences, Carnets and International CITES permits, to BADA and LAPADA antique declarations, we make certain that your shipment avoids unnecessary delays and complications.
We provide auction houses with Certificates of Shipment upon dispatch as proof of export. We use the online UK Customs & Excise New Export System (NES) for UK customs entries. These too are forwarded to auction houses as a requirement for aspects of VAT refunds upon export.
