Antiques Dealers Surviving the Brexit Blow
Brexit hit the antiques trade incredibly hard: almost overnight, EU-based dealers stopped attending the international antique fairs in the UK, while UK-based antique dealers – many of whom are sole traders – felt beaten by the complexity and increased cost of new legal customs procedures.
While a handful of dealers may have quit the trade, others have sought help – not just in the form of an agent to process their customs clearance, but a source of relevant and accurate information on how to import goods.
Hairsines Customs Clearance Training to help the Industry Thrive
The end of ‘free movement of goods’ between the EU and the UK did not signal the end of trade for seasoned antique dealer and IoE member, Kevin Hairsine. In response to Brexit’s hammer blow to the antiques trade, Kevin trained as a customs agent with the UK Customs Academy.
Achieving distinction in Levels 2 and 3, together with his wife, Jenni, he launched HAIRSINESCustomsClearance.com – a customs agent with advisory service – aimed specifically at the antiques and vintage trade.
