"I just got off the plane and Customs took my stuff!! Now what do I do?"

First...breathe! This isn't as uncommon as you may think. Most people don't know we customs brokers exist until they need our services. That is why we are here!

We will help you with working out the entire issue, from getting your account set up to payment processing to clearance and release. The process is simple:

Email our team at customsbroker@clearyourcargo.com

In the subject, input the word "Help!" then tell us your situation in the body of the email.

We will send you all necessary documentation, as well as ask for details regarding your shipment (value, invoice, how it arrived, etc.) You will sign the required documents and send them, along with the requested paperwork, back to us.

Once we verify everything is in good order, we will send you an invoice that you pay online with your credit card. Once payment is verified, we will finalize our side of the process. We will send you all the required paperwork, as well as inform customs that it is processed on our side and provide them with a unique entry number. Assuming the goods are admissible, Customs will release the goods to you after you settle any outstanding costs.
