Basically my question contains three parts:
Can I export scrap tyres to Pakistan?
What are the taxes and duties on tyres ?
How much cost a Tyre cutting machines or is it available on rent?

Kindly advise me in this regard and oblige.

You will struggle to find any shipping line that will export scrap tyres to Pakistan , it is fraught with difficulties. If you could you must get approval from the Pakistan authorities first. Let me know if you have any success we have one or two clients wishing to do the same but it appears impossible for the time being.


Dear Abid

Exporting this product from anywhere in UK is near impossible as allready advised as all the shipping lines i know will not accept second hand tyres from UK to anywhere in the world.
