Importing goods ...here is good service !!

Unread post by Jean Crous » Tue Nov 04, 2014 7:39 pm

There is a member here on Avcom that works for a shipping company, and has given us more than we bargained for in service. We have used a few shipping companies in the past, none came close to this man. We ordered some parts from Revmaster Aviation in USA , 2 weeks later it was cleared at Customs, and delivered by courier here in Barrydale. The same with a new engine on order from Revmaster, he organised such a competitive rate , and the best part is the price is the same whether we collect in Cape Town , or if the couriers drop it off at our factory here in Barrydale.

Thanks for the info, appreciate..
IMO it's a good practice to promote good service on this forum, personally myself and the company may benefit from this one ...the problem is will we indulge in exposing unacceptable service...

Importing parts or goods is one of those dreaded things that sometimes have to be done. If one dont deal with it regularly, it is quite daunting as the rules change regularly with import tax, levies etc.
This task has been made painless by Julian from the above company. What a pleasure dealing with competent efficient people! I will definitely make use of their services again should the need arise.

When importing goods it is mostly from Amazon in the US. They make use of aramax for all their importing and shipping of goods. So far I have only had great service and great pricing. I have ordered about 7 or 8 packages so far. Usually takes about 2 weeks to arrive. Im sure you can use aramax directly as well to bring in stuff that is not from Amazon. So there are a couple of options out there.
