Export second hand books to Germany

Question

Hello,
I want to open a second hand bookshop in Berlin, with books in English and German.
What’s the best way for me to export used books from the uk?
And what about shipping rates?

Thank you in advance.

Answer

Dear Bruno
This depends on high large the consignments are that you are planning on sending. If it’s a few small boxes, then a courier service is probably the most cost effective. If it is bigger, such as one or two pallets, then road freight “groupage services” are best suited. Typically, as a rough guide only, you will pay approximately £140 plus VAT for one pallet ex UK to Berlin.

Gary
