From January 1, 2021, vehicles, plant or machinery imported from outside of the EU will require a customs declaration to Revenue’s customs division in advance of the vehicle arriving at an entry port, regardless of the imposition of proposed tariffs.
Vehicles imported without the necessary paperwork completed or customs clearance obtained will be held at the port causing unnecessary delays and extra costs involved.
To avoid this scenario, Jonathan O’Grady, a well known figure in the motor industry has devised and launched Automotive Customs Brokers, a specialist customs clearance service which will provide a much simplified but all in one service for anyone importing vehicles from the UK.
Speaking to Autotrade.ie, Mr O’Grady explained that “the main aim of their service is to simplify the process and to make it as cost effective as possible for dealers to sign up and let dealers focus on doing what they do best which is moving metal”.
Mr O’Grady added: “It’s an end to end service so the dealer can rest easy knowing that his staff have the expertise and ease of access with the customs system.
“Because they are specialising in dealing with the motor trade they can offer the lowest prices in the market, with multiple declarations costing from as little as €40, as well as ‘pay as you go’ and ‘bulk buy’ options.”
Mr O’Grady highlighted the benefits of Automotive Customs Brokers’ services. These include free advice and free account setup, along with around the clock customer support specific to the motor industry.
Automotive Customs Brokers will also utilise its state-of-the-art software by submitting a cloud-based real time document to customs on your behalf.
For an initial consultation to see how he can help you overcome the issues of customs clearance, contact Jonathan O’Grady on 086 233 77 83.

Due to the extreme demands that are set to be placed on the customs system from January 1, Mr O’Grady is urging motor dealers to get registered promptly with Automotive Customs Brokers to ensure they will have no headaches with getting their stock delivered in time for the New Year.
