I am interested in importing a 20' or 40' container from Tiwan (HK) to LA (but I'm in Miami).I have done a lot of reasearch, but instead of feeling more confident, I 'm feeling more and more overwhelmed!My main concerns are:1. Payment to the Tiwanese company. They want to be paid upfront and in cash. I know that this is not that unusual, but I don't feel comfortable all the same.2. Insurance on ocean and land freight.3. Finding a reliable customs broker, or perhaps even a company that is willing to organize the whole process for my relatively small company, and what reasonables fees are. 4. Finding out what kid of Tariff rate I'm looking at paying when my container reaches customs.5. Am I responsible for the container once it has been unloaded? What do I do with it?Thanks So Much to Anyone that May be Able to Help!Feel free to e-mail me directly.Sharon
