    I am buying a classic car in the US in the next month and am looking for guidance on the following...
    1. Can anyone arrange a shipping company that can organise everything for me?
    2. Could someone advise exactly what happens when container arrives in Dublin Port?
    3. When, where and to whom do I pay the Customs & Excise Duty and VAT
    4. What documentation do I need?
    I am looking for someone who has been through the process and can give step by step info.
    Any advice much appreciated.

    Contact Hill shipping in the UK, they do everything from start to finish including tax/duty, the guy I dealt with was called Jamie.
