Need Custom Broker Price Quote & Question
Hello,

I am planning to bring two containers from China and before I set the plan in motion I need to work with a custom broker and get few tips. I appreciate if someone can answer my questions or guide me to the right direction:

1) How do custom brokers charge for their services? To be specific, I am planning to bring 1) industrial machinery 2) raw material and chemicals and 3) spray trigger top for plastic bottles. Probably they will be total of 2 containers, one 20 ft and one 40 ft. With regards to your services, how much would custom broker charge? I

2) With regards to raw material and chemicals, I need someone that has experience with PET granules (polyethylene terephthalate - the raw material for making plastic bottles. I like to know if they are subject to antidumping laws and banned from importing or they can be imported. If they can be imported, how much is the tariff and custom for releasing PET granules?

3) Is there a broker that specializes in raw material and chemical? Or anyone can handle it?

4) Where can I look up the tariff tax and duty for each item that I intend to import?

Any tip that you can give me will be a great help. Kindly please email me at david@5stargm.com. Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
David
