I found a supplier in China for linen (table cloths) and they plan to ship it to the port of Los Angeles. Does anybody have experience retrieving the package at a port and how to deal with the US Customs? Do I need a Customs Broker to handle all the paper work for me? I am new to this and would appreciate the help.

I have no experience with US customs but just be prepared to pay any tax/VAT that you know should be charged (even though it may not be)

It's best to gets a customs broker --- wouldn't try it myself!
