Hi Phil
My name is Chris Willers and I run an export services company called Access to Export Ltd based near Cambridge.
The answer to your question depends on the quantities of paint you would be shipping and where you would be shipping from (UK?). Pressurised paint cans would be classed as dangerous goods (DG) so would need to be shipped in full compliance with the applicable regulations so will need to be correctly packed, labelled with DG documentation prepared by suitably trained personnel. If you can provide more details of the paint by way of a MSDS and indicate quantities to be shipped, point of shipment and specific destination in the USA I can provide further help. If you want to contact me privately with the details my e-mail address is chris@accesstoexport.com or telephone 01223 890767.
Kind regards
Chris

Hi Phil,

if you can contact me with MSDS and I will advise what documentation is required. My email is james@mercatorcargo.co.uk or telephone 02392756575. We are freight forwarders based in Portsmouth, established for 21 years - our first customer in 1991 is still our customer today - the first shipment was a consignment of hazardous adhesives.
Thanks
