    Morning,

    Im a newbee here but have been an onlooker for quite some time now.

    Many of the information i have read has been extremly benificial to my thoughts etc so firstly i thank you all for that.

    I was wondering, if anyone uses or has heard of any company i can use for importing sporting equipment.

    I am going to concentrate on "1 sport" which i play and know a lot about. I also feel the sport has great potential to grow. I dont really want to reveal this as yet as it not 100% concrete.

    Thanks for reading.

    Not sure what exactly you are looking for but if you have any questions about getting the goods shipped and customs cleared, you are welcome to contact me for advice.

    Best regards,
    Glen

    Don't forget to factor in product liability insurance, based on the locations your planning to sell to.

    You should also remember that lots of sporting goods come with trademarked brands and importing branded goods can be illegal under trademark law. The rules are quite complicated but the penalties are severe so it's worth doing your research.

    It can be slightly difficult to offer advice on suppliers if we don't know what you want supplied... footballs, football boots, goalposts, same sport, differing suppliers....

    To be honest....I do have a resources (based on over 30 years of work experience) which I'm quite happy to use to advise others, which I do frequently on a number of forums and through email and telephone sessions.

    I do so because I like to help people ... not for payment (although I do charge fees if I leave my home to advise.)

    If you don't want to reveal information, don't expect a comprehensive response, but please don't waste my time.

    can I ask why you are importing as supposed to buying branded goods from UK suppliers?
