    Did you contact Phoenix in England? They've shipped dozens of Minis into Seattle (probably 2 dozen just to me, over the years!). They should be able to suggest someone.

    Tell 'em Chuck Heleker sent you their way.

      I guess that you mean that you need a broker in the US to handle getting the car released & onto the boat for Hawaii.

      I've imported 2 cars from the UK. I used Phoenix in the UK to handle the shipping. I "imported" the car myself. Since I live here in Seattle it is only a matter of some time/paperwork/legwork. No hassle really if everything is above board.

      I've never used a customs broker. I don't even know of one to recommend. I assume that you live in Hawaii? Perhaps there is someone there that can assist you. I would imagine that many of the brokers have "networks" of other brokers across the globe.

        customs broker

        phoenix cargo says they cannot ship to seattle because its not a ro/ro receiving port. So it must go to tacoma port. i need someone to clear the car and transfter to export dock. any recommendations?

          As previously indicated, contact Phoenix for a recommendation.
