E-mail Notification

U.S. Customs Duties and Local USVI Fees

To avoid delays, please let your shipper know that an invoice is required in order to clear your freight through U.S. Customs and the Virgin Islands Bureau of Revenue (VIBIR) in St. Thomas prior to shipping to St. Thomas. VIBIR charges 4.2% of the invoice value of most items shipped to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Personal goods are exempt from this tax. Also, marine products are exempt from VIBIR Excise Fees, but your invoice must have the words "Marine Products" or the name of the vessel, in order to receive this exemption. Furthermore, U.S. Customs charges a duty on products made in foreign countries - even if it is shipped from the U.S. Please have your invoice state the country of manufacture on the invoice - or risk delays in your shipment or paying duty.

Our staff can help you ensure that your paperwork is in order prior to shipping your item, and walk your shipment through the system so it is cleared and delivered as quickly as the system allows.

Please keep in mind that that the process involves Shipping, ocean freight, security, bunker, bill of lading and insurance. For this reason, if you are shipping several items, we suggest you take advantage of consolidation services and have us hold your small shipments until all of your freight has arrived.

Insurance

We take great care with your freight, but in any type of cargo handling, damage can happen. For this reason we automatically add insurance to all shipments. This covers most types of damage, but we cannot insure personal belongings or used furniture. The insurance covers the full value of your shipment, plus the cost to re-ship - in the unlikely event that you need to submit a damage or loss claim. If damage or loss does occur, we will assist you with submitting your claim. Claims must be submitted within five (5) days of receipt of your freight. You may decline the insurance charge by submitting an Insurance Waiver Letter. This needs to be done in writing prior to the shipment arriving in Miami. Please note that you are accepting liability for all and any damage should you elect this option.
