I’m thinking about setting up a small shop website in the UK focussing on fashion items that are unique to Colombia. I’m struggling to find out information on the best way to bring the items over here. I have a contact in Colombia who can source the items at wholesale prices.
We are thinking of bringing over the initial run of items by extra baggage on a commercial flight. Would we have to declare these items beforehand or can you get away with just bringing them in as personal luggage allowance?
As the business grows we will have to look at freight, is there somewhere I can find ballpark costs for shipping in bulk?
