International Moving Services In Cuba

Cuba International Moving Services

Change is something that is constant and ever present in the business industry or in an individual’s life. At times, changes will require a company or an individual to move to new territories.  This is called relocation. International moving can prove to be a long and tedious process. It is therefore advisable to look for a company that offers international moving services so that you benefit from a hassle-free move. It is also a good idea to settle for a company that offers shipping services for vehicles.

Import duties charged by Cuban customs

You’ll be relieved to discover, that both new and used household belongings can be imported without pay duty. The only requirement to receive this exemption, is that you’ve lived outside of Cuba for a minimum of the last 12 months. You also must list all non-personal items on your customs declaration form, as well as cash (if it’s more than $5,000 USD) (1).

Restrictions for U.S. Citizens

The changing travel restrictions for Americans have been in the news often in recent years, with President Obama changing the regulations (in order to make travel to Cuba easier). President Trump has rescinded many of these measures - so you shouldn’t consider traveling or relocating to Cuba without first checking the latest regulations (2).

Paperwork Required For International Moving

Paperwork required by Cuban customs

You’ll need to give customs a comprehensive inventory, and this can be written in English or Spanish. Your housing lease or purchase contract is also needed, to demonstrate residency in Cuba. A valid visa is required as well, and you must request this from the Cuban Director of Immigration and Foreign Affairs in the Ministry of the Interior.

The Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment should also be shown. Finally, your passport must be presented - though if you’re American, having it stamped by Cuban customs could lead to problems (including legal ones, if you’re not entering the country under any currently permissioned types of travel) (3).

Import duties levied on your vehicle by Cuban customs

The reputable sources consulted, make no mention of the import duty requirements when shipping your vehicle to Cuba. They do, however, make it clear that you must obtain prior permission. Cuban customs only permits certain vehicle types into its borders, and it’s recommended that you speak with your destination agent before shipping any vehicle (4).

Paperwork required for your vehicle by Cuban customs

You must have your title and registration (the originals), as well as the purchase receipt or invoice. A purchase or rental contract may also need to be shown, if this applies to your vehicle shipment (5).

With the often-changing laws regarding travel to Cuba (at least for Americans), you should not embark on a move without consulting the U.S. State Department. They’ll be able to advise you about the legality of relocating, along with all of the most current restrictions and regulations.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Do plenty of research on licensed companies that provide Cuba International Moving Services. To settle on your final pick, determine which one will match your budget and still meet your needs.
  • To ensure ease of handling, storage and movement of your goods; package and label them properly.
  • Familiarize yourself with the rules related to migrating to Cuba. The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) website contains useful information that you can peruse through.
  • Prepare your travel documents well-in-advance and present them when they will be required for processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company and maintain good contact. This ensures that the process will be easy, with the information being passed clearly and action taken as required.

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!
