Looking for anyone who has had experience shipping household to Lima, Peru to give some insight about their experience and if they would recommend the shipping company.
We (a Peruvian and an American) looking to relocate to Lima early next year. We have furniture that are new and not inexpensive and would want to see possibilities of taking them and few personal items.
Thanks for any help.

I guess The first question I would ask is how much freight do you have? a small amount or a container load. The second question. Do you say 1 of you is Peruvian? if so that person can get a free duty amount up to as much as 50,000 dollars. However, if it is mixed between they will make you split the load and you will have to pay duty on the non-household items. we were in the same boat, 3 americans and 1 peruvian. so we have a very good idea. be very careful as to the shiping company you choose as well as the agents as they are independent. It might be more cheaper to just sell the items you have and buy new when you get settled. I would be very happy to talk to you offlivne on this subject.

From what state or you moving from? Decide on how much items you are taking. Other words how many rooms are you shipping. There are so many shipping companies that it is almost impossible to say who is better. If you are able to get a hold of any person who works in a Peruvian consulate they maybe able to guide you in your quest. Most important is how many years the company has been in business and also what Cargo Line will they be utilizing. I myself will be moving to Lima around 2023.
