FULL CONTAINERS TO LANZAROTE

We can arrange the shipment of a complete container load from your door in the UK to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, always on a door-to-door basis. For the most basic service, we will arrange for an empty shipping container to be positioned at your door for you to load. We will then attend to the export clearance, shipping to the destination port, then import clearance and delivery of the container to your residence. For a more comprehensive service, we can provide a full removal service in the UK to do the packing/wrapping and loading and/or unloading the container at the destination address.

GROUPAGE

For smaller loads we send a consolidated container every one or two weeks from our Barking warehouse (close to M11/M25) to Arrecife. Your goods will be import cleared through the Customs authorities at Arrecife and then delivered to your door in Lanzarote or Fuerteventura. The cost for this service is based on the size of your individual consignment so you only pay for the space your goods occupy in the container

AIR FREIGHT

We send regular consolidations by air to Arrecife and Puerto Del Rosario airports

CARS

Can be sent by full container or by RoRo vessel.

REMOVALS

Ocean Global Line Ltd utilises the skills of specially selected removal companies throughout the UK in order to provide the best professional removal service to ensure that your move will be as smooth and stress-free as possible.

You can sit back and relax while all the work is done for you by our appointed removal experts.

Similarly on arrival at destination address we can provide labour to unload your goods and place them in your residence.

PROCUREMENT OF GOODS

Our in-house purchasing section will source and purchase goods of all types on your behalf.

We provide a procurement service to many overseas customers for the purchase of foodstuffs, restaurant and catering supplies, furniture and domestic furnishings. We send regular orders from Argos, Next, B&Q, Better Bathrooms, Appliances Online and many other UK and internet suppliers.

We can also assist with the reclaim or avoidance of UK Value Added Tax (VAT).

V.A.T

The Canary Islands are a Special Territory within the EC and as such are treated as being outside the EC for customs and tax purposes.

Unlike other EC countries import tax has to be paid in the Canaries but supplies can be zero-rated at this end, i.e. it is treated as a standard export to a non-EC country – the supplier will require proof of export and we can send them a Certificate of Shipment as soon as the goods have been shipped from the UK.

However, shops and suppliers are often unwilling to zero-rate their sales due to the added administration.

As an alternative in this case, we can pay for UK goods on your behalf to avoid the payment of any VAT by you.

You pay us the net amount and we attend to the VAT reclaim.

STORAGE MANAGEMENT

Goods can be stored on a temporary or a long-term basis at our warehouse in Barking or at a secure storage facility in Cambridgeshire ready for shipping when required.

Safety and security is assured at both sites with constant supervision and surveillance.

PACKING

Ocean Global Line Ltd can provide a professional packing service at our Barking warehouse for fragile items, crating motorbikes, wrapping soft furniture/mattresses, etc.

We can also send you packing boxes, bubble-wrap, sofa and mattress covers and other packing materials to protect your belongings.
