If you have a reasonable amount of data to export/import and it were me, 
I'd use a tool like Talend Open Studio [1] and build some ETL routines 
externally to vtiger to cleanse and transform the data before importing.

We now do this quite a bit for customers and use the server API to write 
records into the database rather than the user-import feature.

User import is fine for "simple" imports but when you need to manipulate 
de-dupe, cleanse etc... you could never have all the filters and 
conversions you need in the vtiger import feature.
