Duties when bringing your belongings into Ecuador

It is feasible to receive duty exemption, but you must meet all of customs regulations to do so. You must have an Immigrant Visa or a Non-Immigrant Work Visa (which is good for more than 12 months). You also must enter the country at least 2 weeks before your shipment arrives. If your shipment reaches Ecuador before you do - then you’ll have to pay import taxes.

Other regulations also apply, such as the need for your shipment to enter Ecuador no later than 60 days after you do (1). Due to the complexities involved with clearing Ecuadorian customs, working with a qualified international moving company like A1 Auto Transport is your best course of action.

Paperwork when bringing your belongings into Ecuador

The filing requirements for your shipment are on par with the regulations - that is to say, they are also extensive. You must give customs a Letter of Employment that’s good for a minimum of one year. A Verification Certificate from an inspection company within Ecuador is also required.

The ANEXO II Form must be filled out and given to customs, though you may need to fill out ANEXO I or III depending on your situation. A Migratory Certificate obtained from the Migration Police in your city of residence within Ecuador is also mandatory documentation. Quite a few additional forms are also needed - so check with Ecuadorian customs for a full list (2).

Duties when bringing your vehicle into Ecuador

It appears that duty exemption is only reserved for those with diplomatic status and returning citizens (and even then certain conditions apply) (3). Therefore, you should be prepared to pay the usual duty rate - which is 65% of the vehicle’s CIF value (4).

Paperwork when bringing your vehicle into Ecuador

If you’ve decided to go ahead with importation of your vehicle, you’ll need to have a vehicle inspection certificate. The vehicle’s purchase invoice and an Import License are also required. Finally, it seems that a separate Import Permit is also mandatory - and you can obtain this from the Ministry of Finance (5).

You shouldn’t rely solely on the above discussion of the import process - as more forms and regulations will have bearing on your shipments. The most prudent approach is to speak with Ecuadorian customs, so you’re certain that you’ve fulfilled all the necessary import requirements.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

The following tips can help you have a smooth process while making your move:

  • Conduct plenty of research while searching for the moving company. Gather as much information on firms that provide Ecuador International Moving Services as you can and especially those that do so within your budget.
  • Familiarize yourself with rules governing shipping to your destination country. Relevant authorities such as the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) have useful information
  • Packaging of your goods in a way that allows for easy storage and movement is important. In case there is a fragile product, package and label it well.
  • Prepare your documents and present them as and when required for processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company and provide them with all necessary information that relates to your move. Seek guidance and information from them whenever you need to do so.

How to find the best international moving company

When making an international move, you need to consider a number of factors before hiring a moving company: Will they offer you with reliable and secure transportation of your goods? Do they have a good support team that will handle your requests in a timely and professional manner? Are they certified to provide Ecuador International Moving Services? How well do they perform in the moving industry? What is their rating? Will they match your budget?

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!
