Have over 60 used boxes, small, medium, large, expandable flat boxes for art, lg posters or flat screen TVs. Last chance before I compact, tape and send to trash!

Already taken to Bahamas Waste. Very helpful actually.

major cardboard recycling is at Bahamas Waste on Gladstone, I believe. However, NPCC on Blake Rd is where the average person can take glass, aluminum, plastic, and cardboard for recycling. MPCC - New Providence Community Centre - not really a church...:-) They are where the Chives restaurant is - across from Bristol Wines and the storage facility.

Hello I recently moved to the Bahamas I am looking for a cheap old SUV to use for one year that runs! Thanks
ahmedsbt replied on September 18, 2014 with:
Hi Stefan, Ever considered importing one from Japan? I would cost you a lot cheaper as compared to the local market. You can trust the quality as Japanese vehicles are known globally for their good quality. Find me contact details below and leave me an email for more info. Regards, Ahmed.

Hi My husband and I are thinking about moving to the Bahamas for 2/3 years. We currently have a car which we have only had for a couple of years which is worth about £17,000. Is is right that wee had the car shipped across that we would have to pay import tax at around 50-75%? If this is so we may have to think about leasing a car. Does anyone know of a company that does this that I can check out some prices from please. Secondly how long can we drive in the Bahamas on our UK licences. I have heard that we would need to get an international licence. Does this mean we will have to take a test or is it just about filling in a few forms and applying for one. Thanks
ahmedsbt replied on September 18, 2014 with:
Hi, The import duty in Bahamas depends on the value of the car, breakups shown below: $10,000 or less .. 65% duty $20,000 or less .. 75% duty $40,000 or less .. 85% duty.. Duty on commercial vehicles is different.. can pm me for furthers details if required. Regards, Ahmed. Manager Export, SBT JAPAN Skype: sbt.ahm3d email: chundriger9970@sbtjapan.com

I'm looking for information about buying a car from Japan. I've heard of a lot of people doing it here and I was wondering if anyone could provide any insight -- reputable dealers, horror stories, etc. If the car works, it seems like it could be a good deal. Thanks!
ahmedsbt replied on September 18, 2014 with:
Hey Jabina, I am currently working for SBT Japan, as one of the account managers. As you can already see a positive comment about our company, I would like to tell you that currently we are the largest used car exporters in Japan, exporting more than 10,000 cars globally every month. If you like, you can leave me your number in a pm and I'll be please to give you a call. Or just add me on your Skype and I'll get in touch. SKYPE ID: sbt.ahm3d Hope to hear from you soon.

I know SBT Japan has a good rep. My bestie just ordered a really nice Nissan Teana from them she paid about 7 grand including all import duties tariffs etc. It's really nice- navigation, back up camera, clean, the passenger seat even reclines and has a foot rest. Google the company you can view the car online prior to purchasing.

Hi, does anyone know of a swimming pool available for fitness swimming in the mornings in the west Nassau? (Not confident enough to swim alone in the sea.)

JoeyThompson posted HVAC/Refrigeration Work In Bahamas on the Bahamas forum on September 12, 2014:
I am looking to relocate from the US to a place where my family and I can live a comfortable (not some sort of fantasy) life. It would have to be a place where I can still make a living as a seasoned commercial HVAC/Refrigeration Technician, like in a resort or in a high rise type of building. The question is.....How does one find out what such an occupation pays there? Is there a demand for that kind of knowledge in The Bahamas? Boots on the ground report..... Joey
