Brazil International Moving Services

Despite the thrills that come with the thought of moving abroad, the reality is that it is a rather challenging process. You have to meet some rigorous requirements set by some immigration departments and get down to the business of sorting your items, packing and shipping them. It is an emotional taxing, time-consuming process.

Import duties when moving to Brazil

Customs permits you to import your household goods without paying any duty - and even new items are eligible for duty exemption (1). This is a nice benefit of moving to Brazil, but you will need to follow certain guidelines in order to receive it. First, your shipment should be imported no later than 180 days after you enter the country (though 90 days is better). Second, you must list all new belongings on your inventory, in order to receive duty exemption for them (2).

Import paperwork when moving to Brazil

Among the documents you must provide when your shipment is clearing customs, is a notarized employment contract. You’ll also need either a temporary Work Visa or a permanent Residence Visa. As mentioned above, you must show a comprehensive inventory of all new items - and an inventory of used items is required as well. These forms should be written in Portuguese, and you also must submit your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Two copies of your RNE (Registro Nacional de Estrangeiros) paperwork are also needed (3).

Duties when importing your vehicle into Brazil

Whether you have a temporary or permanent visa - you’re not permitted to import your vehicle for personal use. This benefit is reserved for diplomats or employees of international organizations like UNESCO (4).

Paperwork when importing your vehicle into Brazil

If it’s possible for your company to import a vehicle on your behalf, or if some other exception is found - you’ll still need some paperwork to proceed. This includes the purchase receipt or invoice for the vehicle and a REDA-E Form. A notarized Power of Attorney, Original Bill of Lading and your passport are also required. Documents showing that you own (or the company you work for owns) the vehicle and a notarized Brazilian tax card should also be provided (5).

This coverage of the duties and documents required when shipping your goods to Brazil isn’t all-encompassing. For this reason, it’s vital that you speak to Brazilian customs, before sending your goods from your country of origin.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Start early: Without a doubt, when there is so much to be done, ample time is required. In fact, you should start preparations about 90 days to the day of moving. This will help you avoid delays and attend to everything needed.
  • Visa and passport: It is important to find out what type of visa you will require. For instance, if you are moving to Brazil for work purposes you will need a work visa. Kindly find more information on how to apply for a visa by visiting the Embassy of Brazil’s website. Also, ensure that you apply for a US passport through the US Government.
  • Buying real estate and acar: Before moving abroad, most people think of acquiring assets such as a house and a car. It is however, advisable to take your time before making such acquisitions. Give yourself time to learn your new home, who the best suppliers are and any such information that will keep you from being ripped off.  So, before you start looking for Brazil International Moving Services, talk to an expert about future acquisitions.
  • Reach out to people: Moving to a new place might be a confusing experience so talk to friends and family who have either been there or live there. You could also join local social media groups and make new friends. Ensure that you get as much information as possible about your preferred location.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Professional movers come with the required expertise and equipment for the job. Indeed, they will ensure that your valuables are handled with care and see that these get to your new destination safely. If you decide to do it alone, you will experience mental and physical strain. It will also consume a lot of your time and there is the risk of you losing or damaging your belongings.

How to find the best international moving company

When looking for Brazil International Moving Services, begin by searching the internet. Also, ask for recommendations from friends and family members. Next, get a list of a few companies and before you settle for one, kindly consider the following:

  • Ensure that you choose a company that is licensed and has insurance that covers damage on valuables during transit.
  • Read customer reviews on the respective companies’ websites. A company with more negative than positive reviews is, definitely, not a good choice.
  • Compare different estimates and choose a company that is offering you a good service package at the most affordable rate.
  • Settle for a company that has achieved high service standards by attaining accreditations.

Satisfied Customers

“Dear Tracey, I am in the high technology industry with lots and lots of global competition, so I fully appreciate competitive selling situation. In today's fast paced business environment, true customer service is becoming an exception rather than a standard practice. I maintain this fact as I sell to my global clients ranging from electronic giants like Samsung, Motorola to unknown smaller customers in Taiwan. I took notice of Nicole's exceptional professionalism on the phone and her empathy to an already fraustrated customer (dealing with another transport company). Her followup after my initial inquiry for a quote is truly the reason why I chose to do my business with A1 Auto Transport. If Nicole's Customer Service skills are mere routine practice in your firm, then Bravo to management; if not, Nicole deserves to be recognized. Best Wishes, Homin Paik”

“There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them. After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia. Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more. By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.”

“It’s been a few months now since I’ve moved to Florida from Illinois after my career took a nice turn. I had to relocate for a new job, and let me tell you, moving isn’t my favourite thing in the world. All the planning and packing and calling people up to help you move a mountain of personal stuff across states have me doubting my capacity as an adult to handle pressure and endure stress. I don’t think anyone like me with a busy enough life juggling university and a demanding career would ever say moving is an exciting activity. That’s why I’ll be forever thankful to A1 Auto Transport for making my life a hell of a lot easier during the move. I’d never had to worry about rearranging my schedule because of some hang-ups or delays, or getting screwed over for a costly service that damaged both my pocket and my car. It made me think of all those horror stories of people who ran into some bad luck with transporters damaging their most prized possessions after waiting for days on end with hundreds of dollars wasted. I felt really relieved that I didn’t become one of those people when I opted to go with A1 Auto Transport. Along with relocating to Florida for a cool job offer, working with A1 was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made.”

“Joe really came through to get my car shipped. A1 Auto Transport is a transport company with a very good reputation. They answered every question I had and would always give a speedy reply to my texts or calls. I first sent them an email and their reply to it was fast also. On 04/12, the truck arrived to take my car, and it was estimated it would arrive at my new address in Texas a week later. However, it arrived 2 days early, on 04/17. There were a few misunderstandings due to its early arrival, but we thankfully got through them. My car arrived in great shape, no scratches or bumps. Joe took his time to make sure I was informed and ready to receive it.”

“This is the first time I have moved my vehicle this way. I was kind of scared at first not knowing much about how it works. I ended up working with John and he expalined in detail how it all works, My car was delivered a little late (2 days) but the team more than made up for it with their communication. Thanks again.”
