The duties assessed by Honduran customs

How import duties are handled for your household goods, isn’t a straightforward issue. One source mentions that for foreigners moving into the country, import taxes and duty will be charged (1). However, according to the International Association of Movers - retirees transferring their primary residence into Honduras can receive a franchise for duty exemption.

Also termed a dispensa, you must hire a lawyer to obtain this before shipping your goods. It typically takes about one month to receive your franchise for duty exemption. There are also additional requirement to be eligible, including the stipulation that you have over $1,500 USD of income each month (2).

The paperwork mandated by Honduran customs

Before your shipment of household belongings will be granted entry, you must file the necessary paperwork. You’ll need a comprehensive inventory, which has the values for your items listed. A separate packing list written in Spanish and either your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are also required. Your contact information and a Registro Tributario Nacional (RTN) are necessary as well. You will also have to show your franchise, if you wish to receive duty exemption on your shipment (3).

The duties assessed on your vehicle

The topic of duties on vehicle imports is also murky, and there is a great deal of conflicting information available. One source says that only international organizations and those with diplomatic status are permitted to import vehicles into Honduras (4). Other excellent sources state that both new and used vehicles can be imported (seemingly by anyone who wishes to do so), but duty exemption is reserved for international organizations and diplomats (5).

If it turns out after discussing this issue with Honduran customs, you are permitted to import your vehicle - expect to pay high import taxes (6). These apply to even duty-exempt shipments, so keep this in mind when deciding whether to bring a vehicle with you during your move (7)

The paperwork mandated for your vehicle

You must have the purchase invoice and RTN, when shipping your vehicle to Honduras. Form 9-A is also sometimes required. The Original Bill of Lading and a valid franchise (if you’re able to obtain duty exemption) should also be shown. The vehicle’s title and your passport must be provided as well (8).

With such complex regulations and inconsistent information available, you must contact Honduran customs for yourself. They should be able to explain the fees that will apply, and whether duty exemption is available for your household belongings and vehicle.

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!
