1)  BUYING A CARAVAN IN THE UK

When buying a caravan from the UK you need to make sure that what you pay for is what you get. That’s why we, at ShipFromUK are here to offer you a solution. Being the only NCC approved freight forwarder in the UK, we’ll be glad to make you an introduction to our trustable caravan dealers we currently work with. With their qualified engineers they can inspect and supply any caravans from the UK, not being limited to the available stock.

The way it works is that you’ll advise the make and model of the caravan you are looking to import to Busan or Incheon in South Korea, and they will do a comprehensive check on your behalf for:

  • Presence of any hidden damages or drawbacks
  • Outstanding finance
  • Recorded as stolen
  • Written off as a result of damage or theft

2) PREPARING FOR LOADING

Our experienced staff have been loading caravans in containers for the last 15 years. Shipping your caravan in a container is not only safe but also the most competitive method to export your caravan to South Korea.

The safest way to ship your caravan

It goes as follows:

1. Once we receive the caravan to export to South Korea in our dedicated loading facilities in Felixstowe or Southampton, our specialised staff will prepare a condition report. The caravan will be checked in on an iPad, thus you can instantly see online the condition report and pictures of the caravan’s outside, inside, any damages, dents, scratches, etc. This will serve as proof that the condition of the caravan hasn’t changed on arrival. 

2. We’ll prepare the caravan for loading:

  • At request we will undertake a steam cleaning of the caravan body to ensure it arrives clean
  • We’ll protect the body caravan with paddings all around
  • We’ll place silica gels inside of the caravan thus all the moisture is absorbed and the mould cannot be formed in the long transit
  • If required we’ll remove the rear lights, aerial, to give more tolerance between the caravan and the container walls

3. Then the caravan will be professionally secured, lashed and loaded in the container

Due to our patented loading methodology, we can ensure a free of damage in transit to our customers.

You can individually monitor the whole process through our website.

 

3) INSIDE THE CONTAINER

Once the caravan is inside the container it will be loaded on the quickest direct transit to South Korea - only 35 days port to port. Its position on the water on its way to South Korea can be seen with the click of a button. Our specialised website comes equipped with a live tracking feature to locate your caravan on its way to South Korea, accessible via your personal account.  

 

 4) ARRIVAL

Once the caravan arrives in South Korea, our overseas agent will take care of the import procedure. The caravan will be customs cleared and passed through the local import procedure.

The next step is to pay the Korean Taxes:

  • Individual Consumption Tax: 5% of CIF value
  • Education Tax: 30% of Individual Consumption Tax
  • Import VAT: 10% of (CIF Value + Customs Duty + Individual Consumption Tax + Education Tax)

 

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ONCE THE CARAVAN ARRIVES IN SOUTH KOREA?

Once you have purchased your caravan from the UK and shipped it to South Korea, there are a few steps to go through to complete the caravan importation, from the moment the vessel arrives to destination:

  1. The container will be unloaded from the vessel and will be delivered to a customs bonded warehouse.
  2. The caravan will be customs cleared 
  3. The Korean Taxes have to be paid.
  4. The caravan is ready to be collected to be used on Korean roads, or it can be delivered to your door upon request.
