Household Goods Importing

Post New Topic

Sorry if there is a thread anywhere else with this topic; but I am not getting far in finding it.

I waited for my permanent residency visa to come through before shipping household goods to avoid bonding around the shipment etc. Permanent residency status was granted last month.

Can anyone recommend a service that can handle all the paperwork door to door? The law firm I used for immigration talks big about its relocation services but I cannot get them to respond to my questions and I think I only have five out six months left to get my shipment processed.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Suzu44, If you bring all that, you might as well bring transformers too, which, as everything else in Uruguay and Argentina and the rest of Latin America, is excessively and inexcusably expensive. Remember that the voltage here is 220. If you decide not to bring any of those items with you, you will still pay a fortune trying to buy them here. About importing a car, that is another black area I don't even want to get into.
My husband and I have been living in Uruguay and Argentina since "almost" the past two years. We also came here with a 40' container filled with all our household goods. We are so fed up of the sh..t going on here, the mentality and the way everything works, that we're ready to pack it all again and go back home. Unfortunately, that is something expats like you and us, will only recognize after a couple of years living here, and not before. Good luck to you though!

Thank you. We are in Buenos Aires, we have DNI Arg. our stuff was bought in BA ( no transformers needed) three years ago. We only have a few items that we will bring (mostly cloths, kitchen stuff) on the ferry to our new vacation home in Colonia. The car is not ours it belongs to friend who is helping us move the stuff.

Unless the friend comes as well, don't forget this then.

In the event that the driver may not be the owner of the vehicle, they must bear a power of attorney authorized by a notary public.
