> Seller & Receiver full contact information, i.e. name, address, phone number. The carriers will make contact with the receivers to confirm the import clearance has been made and any applicable duties and taxes have been paid. If we cannot make contact then the goods cannot be released for delivery, further delaying the service to your customer.

We have been using Spicers for some years now and thoroughly recommend them. They are reliable and helpful, nothing is too much of a problem. We never have to worry about any parcels going missing and their rates are very reasonable. In fact, after moving our business from Worthing to Devon, we still only use Spicer International for our collections.
