We are re locating to Grenada in June and have been told that we need a broker to arrange the customs clearance of our car & household effects, is this true and could anyone recommend a broker

Hi there, I am relocating to G'da from Uk in July, however as a Barrister and Attorney travel there every 6 weeks. My understanding is that You do not need a broker per se, it depends on whether you wish to handle matters yourselves. The first thing is to present to the Concessions Desk at the Ministry of Finance with the required documents and list of goods being imported. Thereafter they will direct you accordingly. You can contact me directly via [email protected] Regards Dawn

Hi Dawn, thanks for getting back so quick. i had heard that you can do things yourself but as we have a car to be sorted out and have to get it all up to Carriacou i'd heard that a broker would be able to do things quicker whereas if we did things ourselves the process would be a lot slower, what do you think?

yes, this is true. We have used George's Broker and Agent a couple of times and were very pleased with the advice and service we received. Their website is http://www.buildgrenada.com/gat/index.html and local phone number is (473) 440-6678. They do this all the time and were very helpful. We brought in our goods in December 2015. The best advice I can give you is to thoroughly inventory what you are bringing in. We numbered everything and kept purchased goods separate from "used" goods that already belonged to us - IE items numbered under 200 were used, over 200 were new purchases. I made a spreadsheet with item number and what the item was (if a box of goods, I identified the major items in the box). I also had a copy of every invoice for new items sorted by box number. It was tedious setting this up an recording everything but it made getting through customs really easy and after the agent opened the first few boxes to check the contents against the inventory, they were satisfied and just stayed to check off the boxes against our form. If you have any further questions you can reply here or reach out to me via email at [email protected] Good Luck and welcome to Grenada!
