What is bonded warehousing?

bonded warehouse smallBonded warehousing allows businesses to import goods and have them stored without paying duty immediately on arrival into the country. This is ideal for art dealers and collectors who wish to store items short or long term before being imported or re-exported or which need to be held in situ for any number of reasons.

Hedley’s can also assist with art fairs and exhibitions where exhibiting goods under bond is now no longer permitted under the new regulations.  In special circumstances, Hedley’s can assist galleries, museums, collectors and dealers with temporary admission documentation through our licence.

Operating from London, Paris and New York, Hedley’s are one of the few facilities that can also offer full climate control which is important for protecting artworks and delicate objects.
