Features of customs clearance of special equipment


  • Bringing special equipment from the USA is absolutely the right decision if you want to optimize your financial costs. The only subtle point is the logistics of the delivery, since it takes place by sea. But if you have 4-8 weeks of time, then special equipment from the USA is definitely the right choice.
  • It should be noted that payments on the “American side” (the cost of the auction fee, the cost of a freight forwarder abroad, loading equipment on a ship, the cost of transportation by ship, etc.) are included in the customs value of imported equipment and are taken into account when calculating the payment of tax burden and customs clearance duties.
  • We have our own representative office in the USA. For you, there are a few points follow from this:
    • The ability of real checking the condition of equipment before shipment
    • Minimizing logistics costs in the USA
    • Full control at every stage of delivery
    • As a result, customs payments and duties in Ukraine are minimized.

Special equipment from any country in the world

  • For us, it does not matter at all from which country in the world you are going to import equipment – we will help with the organization of logistics and expedition, as well as the preparation of all necessary documentation in the country of export.
  • Proof of the fairness of customs value (especially if used equipment) is a complex and painstaking process. But we have got our hands on in this business, which will help you to reduce costs several times.
  • It is thanks to the professional and well-coordinated work, honesty and transparency that the customs clearance process takes a minimum of time and does not require extra costs from you.

Why shouldn't you underestimate the cost of the equipment?

The customs value of imported equipment directly affects the amount of government payments and duties. Therefore, importers are often tempted to indicate a lower amount in the declaration in order to reduce this financial burden.

It should be borne in mind that Customs have a number of tools and methods to test the feasibility of the indicated cost. And if the importer is caught in such a fraud, then a number of unpleasant questions and a multiple increase in deductions in favor of the state budget will arise.

We at VR GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS help importers to defend an honest customs value in order to minimize financial costs for the import of special equipment.

Why you shouldn't use the services of cheap customs brokers?

A cheap customs broker is worse than a cheap dentist, as it can hurt your budget a lot.

When a budget broker is faced with the disagreement of the customs service on the account of the declared value of the cargo, he simply agrees, thereby dooming his clients to overpayments. Such a broker is nothing more than a courier who has learned how to fill out forms at customs.

Reputable customs brokers, like VR GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS, value their reputation in the eyes of their clients and government agencies, and therefore prepare the necessary documents even before any controversial issues arise, always protect the interests of their clients and argue every figure before the state customs service.


Calculate financial burden

Working with us, you will know exactly when, how much and how you need to pay in order to minimize import costs.

This will allow you to correctly arrange the money in time and be sure that there are no unplanned expenses.

Preparation of documents to the border

We start our work even before the equipment leaves the country of export. We prepare the entire package of necessary documents so that there are no delays at the border.

For you, this means the fastest possible customs clearance process and the absence of costs due to the fact that the equipment is “stuck” at the customs.

The subtleties of customs clearance

As mentioned earlier: customs clearance of special equipment is a process that has many nuances and details. We take care of all these concerns.

For you, this means the most comfortable process of importing equipment.


Equipment certification is a mandatory procedure if you want to operate or sell it on the territory of Ukraine.

We help our clients to prepare the equipment for this procedure and go through it.


Even if your equipment is simply huge and does not fit into a standard container, we will organize its transportation without any problems.

To do this, we use special ships and platforms that allow you to import equipment of almost any size.


If the customs service does not agree with the value of the imported cargo, which you indicated in the declaration, then the amount of payments may increase several times.

To avoid such moments, we prepare all the documents in advance to justify the customs value of your cargo.


How much does customs clearance of special equipment cost?

Determination of the customs value will depend on a number of factors, the cost of purchasing abroad, the type of special equipment itself, the duration of delivery, etc.

For a more accurate calculation of customs payments – leave a request on our website, and our customs broker will contact you and provide you with the necessary information.

Can you help with the certification of special equipment?

Yes, we will tell you the addresses and the procedure for certification of special equipment.

Moreover, if necessary, we can go through all the required certification procedures instead of you.

How to check the hydraulic units in used equipment abroad?

This is an important step in the deal, since it is not as buying a car abroad.

On the practical side, the most ideal way is for you to find a specialist in hydraulics and he checks the necessary units of used special equipment.

At the US auctions, we have an inspection representative and hydraulic inspectors. We emphasize: we always recommend that you create your own working group, and that it is them who carry out the verification procedure.

Will you be able to pick up, clear customs and deliver special equipment to me?

For us, this is the most perfect model of cooperation with you, when our client gives the task, where to pick up the cargo? date of possible shipment of the cargo? and we are subsequently engaged in the preparation of documents for the delivery and customs clearance of used special equipment

How to get around cargo delays at customs?

There is only one answer. You need to be well-documented and ready at any time to start defending your corporate interests to prevent overpayment at customs.
