Import duties levied by Chilean customs

If you’ll be entering Chile under a temporary Residence Visa or Work Visa - then certain conditions must be met to qualify for duty exemption. You must be working in the country for a minimum of one year. A value limit of $5,000 FOB also applies, for shipments of used household belongings. If your shipment falls under this limit, then you’ll only pay 1% tax - and import duty will be waived altogether (1).

For any portion of your shipment that is over this $5,000 FOB limit, you’ll pay the standard import duties. Keep in mind that this limit is not per shipment, but a strict total that applies no matter how many shipments you bring into Chile.

Regulations enforced by Chilean customs

If you wish to be granted duty exemption, then you must bring your household goods into Chile no later than 120 days after relocating (2).

Paperwork required by Chilean customs

You must provide your passport and Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. A detailed packing list and a separate inventory (with values included) is also required. A Work Visa good for a minimum of one year is also needed, to bring your items into the country (3). If a destination agent or shipping company (like A1 Auto Transport) will be acting on your behalf during the clearance process - then a Power of Attorney should also be submitted (4).

Import duties levied on your vehicle

You won’t be permitted to import your used vehicle, unless you have diplomatic status or are a foreign official. Otherwise, only new vehicles can be brought into Chile by foreigners - and duty exemption isn’t possible. The current duty rates aren’t listed by the trustworthy sources consulted, so contact customs to learn what fees your shipment will incur (5).

Paperwork required for your vehicle

When shipping your vehicle to Chile, you’ll need to give customs your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Documents proving your ownership of the vehicle are also required. The purchase receipt or invoice and a Vehicle Identification Certificate must also be shown. You’ll be asked to provide a Cost Certificate and tax receipt as well, along with an International Police Certificate (6).

Additional paperwork and regulations will apply, to both your household goods and vehicle - so be sure to speak with customs before going ahead with your international move.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Relocating is not an easy task to undertake but you may use the following tips to make your move easier:

  • Conduct research on your move and all that is related to it. Search for the best international moving company that will cater to your needs and offer you with reliable and affordable Chile International Moving Services. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) also has resources that you may find useful.
  • Prepare and package your valuables in a manner that makes their handling and storage easy. You may use packing supplies that suit the nature of your goods. Crating is also possible.
  • Good preparation and presentation of your documents will make the processing stage swift.
  • Liaising with the moving company will ensure that your pick-up and delivery details are well communicated and acted upon. Paying the bill in good time also ensures that you will have your request acted upon soonest possible.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Making an international move to Chile involves a lot of tasks that you may not be familiar with. You may also be moving to a locality that may require you to store your goods in a warehouse before you pick them up. Hiring a professional moving company gives you the benefit of having a stress-free move. They will be able to pack, transport and unpack your valuables. They also have warehouses at strategic locations and will be able to provide you with storage space.

How to find the best international moving company

When you are searching for a moving company, the best option would be one that will meet your expectations and hopefully exceed them. To get one that would match your budget, request for quotes and then compare the estimate costs.  Find out if they are qualified and certified to carry out Chile International Moving Services. It is also important to check if they possess the BBB Certification and credentials from the America Moving and Storage Association. The moving company’s ratings will be an indicator of their performance. It is also important to find out if they offer insurance to third parties.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
