Customs broker in LA
Just arrived from Australia at LAX and need to get my motorbike out of customs - does anyone know a good customs broker in LA who can process bikes?
Yesterday,from airport,I waited all night long at U.S customs office as the officer told me that I need to have some special documents,EPA and DOT forms prepared by broker.
However,next morning I asked again to United cargo center and they told me that I don't need a broker.
So,I asked again to the same officer and he still insisted that I need a broker then he
try to find a brochure which show rules to explain to me again.
But...Funny thing was happened..
On the brochure,there is an exception rule;
Those vehicle imported by nonresidents for personal use not exceeding one year need not conform to emission or safety requirements but may not be sold in the U.S .
Then,he was little embarassed and got
the airway bill stamped with a big smile..!!
Woops,so I'm here Glandale in L.A on my Korean friends house,with my bike..^^
The next step is sending the money for U.S temparary insurance and buy some stuff like rocks,cover and camping gear.
What a first big step..!!
(Thanks Vicky(Alec's wife) to help me with this..!!)
