Hi,

 

I have purchased a couple of cars from Japan due to arrive in the next few weeks to Newcastle Port of Tyne. 

 

I would like to know if I would be able to pick up the cars myself?

 

What would the process be?

 

Turn up to the port with a transport truck, go to the customs office with my paperwork that I have received, pay the customs and import duties, then load up the truck and leave?

 

I have been trying to a phone number of the customs office over there but can't find anything.

 

I know you can use customs agents to do it all for you, but I would like to do it myself to learn and gain experience.

 

Thank you in advance for any insight.

Not sure about your country, but exactly like you said here. Come with papers pay whatever taxes and leave anyway you can
