Moving Household Items to Bolivia from the U.S.

by jd

I have priced having my items shipped from the US to Bolivia specifically Santa Cruz. I understand that there are some unknown fees that could occur if my items are held in a brokerage warehouse. Is anyone familiar with what usually happens when your items arrive in Bolivia? I have priced service door to door but they tell me things can still get caught up and have problems. My spouse is a returning Bolivian citizen and returning only with household items...what are the hidden fees?

Just a heads up: to qualify for the duty free importation of household goods, you can't have been back in Bolivia for more than 30 days at a time in the past two years.

Questions about shipping household goods
by: Geddy

Hi JD,
I would really like to find out more about your experience shipping household goods to Santa Cruz. I am married to a Boliviana. I plan to take advantage of RM 096 which permits up to $50K US in used household goods to enter duty free. I also plan to put a camioneta (2012 Toyota Tacoma) in the same container, and I understand I must pay duty on the truck. I would like to know which shippers you recommend as well as customs agents in Santa Cruz. Any other recommendations you have would be much appreciated as well.
