Duties you’ll face when bringing in household items

You won’t be able to import a shipment of household belongings into Peru, without incurring duty. Sources are divided on the current duty and tax rate charged by customs. One states that the scale either begins at 12%, or possibly that this is approximately the rate you will pay (1).

Another qualified source asserts that you should expect to pay around 20% instead, for import duties and taxes combined. This rate holds true for the first of each type of electrical appliance. However, if you bring more than one of a comparable appliance into Peru - you’ll incur a 33% rate on every additional unit (2).

Regulations you’ll face when bringing in household items

Though your shipment can enter port a full month before you arrive in Peru - the clearance process cannot begin until you are present. Your shipment is also allowed to arrive after you do - but four months is the permissible limit according to the International Association of Movers (3). A different source has this limit at six months instead, so you should speak with customs to determine which figure is correct (4).

Documents you’ll need when bringing in household items

Getting your shipment through customs clearance will require your passport, packing list and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill (5). This OBL or AWB is required to list the total weight of your shipment, something called the consigned net and clearly indicate that it contains used household belongings.

You will also need a Resident Visa or a Work Contract from a business sanctioned to operate by the Ministry of Labor. Customs will also accept a Certificate of Marriage, proving you’ve wed a citizen of Peru. A comprehensive inventory (which is in addition to the packing list already mentioned) is mandatory as well (6).

Duties you’ll face when bringing in a vehicle

Well-informed sources disagree on this point, with the International Association of Movers stating that duty-free import is possible. To be eligible, the engine must be 2,000 cc’s or less. It also must be valued within the range established by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as being permissible for duty-free importation. However, it’s somewhat likely that this kind of duty exemption is only reserved for diplomats (7).

Other sources indicate that duty cannot be waived, with a rate of 79% being charged on used vehicles. The rate is significantly less for new vehicles, at just 38% duty instead. These fees are levied on the CIF value, which is the cost of the vehicle, plus insurance and freight (8).

Customs also bars vehicles manufactured more than 4 to 5 years ago from entering Peru. Even if your vehicle falls within this age limit, if it has over 80,000 kilometers on the odometer - then it’s also eligible for importation (9).

Documents you’ll need when bringing in a vehicle

Shipping a vehicle to Peru requires the correct paperwork, including the purchase receipt, Original Bill of Lading and a signed customs declaration form (called a DUA) (10). You also must have your passport and a RUC (or Tax ID number). Customs also demands certain mechanical verifications, which have been performed by an approved source (11).

VERITAS or SGS are acceptable service providers, and they must determine the vehicle’s emissions and give you an Inspection Certificate. A separate technical sheet must also be obtained, from an engineer within the country that’s been approved to provide this document (12).

In addition, you should give customs the vehicle’s title and registration, along with proof of insurance coverage (or a written explanation for why it hasn’t been purchased). If your vehicle isn’t new, then a Declaration of Value is also necessary (13).

A large number of additional paperwork requirements and regulations apply, when importing shipments of household goods or a vehicle. Therefore, you should touch base with customs, as they can provide a full accounting of what will be needed to clear your shipments.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is a huge task that involves a lot of preparation, packing and unpacking as well as document preparation and processing. There are big and small details, which need to be considered as top priority. To make your international move easier, it is good to prepare well-in-advance for your move even up to six months in advance.

Since the goods will be handled frequently through the journey, package them securely so that it eases their movement and storage. Liaise with the moving company that you hire and make your order details known so that they may work to meet your expectations.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

When moving to an unfamiliar territory, having a trusted guide offers you with the much needed confidence and peace of mind. While you can make the move solo, it may overwhelm you since there are many details to be remembered and acted upon. Having an experienced team handle your move will offer you with the chance to have a stress-free relocation experience.

Satisfied Customers

“I contacted A1 Auto Transport in November of 2017 and scheduled for my car to be picked up on the 15th or sooner if possible. Joe called me on the 8th and said he could arrange for a truck to pick it up on 13th. According to his calculations, it should have arrived at its destination in Texas within 4-6 days. The company kept its word and my car was picked up on the 13th. The driver followed procedure and inspected it before loading it. I offered him a tip and he refused. To my surprise, he said he’d try to get the car to Texas in around 3 days, 4 maximum. On the morning of the 4th day, it had arrived. My son got a call from them a day early notifying us of the arrival date and estimated time.  At 3 pm, we got it back without a scratch. I’ve heard lots of stories of “the dangers of auto shipping” and of numerous scams, but A1 Auto Transport proved to be different. There are still honest, capable, and professional companies out there. You just have to choose carefully.”

“It was good experience with your sales and custumer service department. I used the UPS tracking online service & I would use your service again. Thanks!”

“I called A1 Auto Transport to bring home an Austin Healey I bought recently. They wanted to come on Tuesday, but the seller was out of town, so we postponed it for one day later. On Wednesday we completed the paperwork, and it was on its way to Tennessee. The estimated time of arrival was Saturday, and it arrived on Friday. Really fast this company! The car didn’t get damaged during transport, and there weren’t any unexpected events or problems to speak of. Also, I received 1 update via text or phone call from the driver each day, letting me know of his progress. Very professional.”

“I work for a large construction company in Connecticut, and let me tell you one thing about moving expensive heavy equipment and vehicles across the country: it can be challenging, and it takes more than one gutsy, smart guy to execute the job perfectly. You need an entire crew of intelligent, hardworking professionals that you can really trust, and A1 Auto Transport is precisely that. As a business person myself, I’ve set up a rigid standard over the years and I now look for certain details before making a critical business decision: competitive cost, quality of service, reputability, and extensive experience in the industry. We feel that we’ve made a truly wise decision in working with A1 Auto Transport. Their high quality service has contributed to the success of our own company, and they exceed our expectations every time.”

“I was having a hell of a time with a broker, so I started looking for alternatives. From the first moment Joe picked up the phone, I knew this was the company I needed. There was something about the tone of his voice, the way he explained everything that reassured me. After my husband’s dad passed away, his mother wanted to leave her vehicle to our son. It was a barely driven Pontiac, and at 18 years old, it was all our son needed. But how were we supposed to get it to him to Delaware? I searched online and spoke to a broker who promised he’d find a carrier within 2 days. 4 days later, I called back to learn he’d forgotten all about our arrangement. He asked for 2 more days, but I was over it. A friend from work wanted to help and found A1 Auto Transport online. We both went through the site, and we were sold. Joe was very attentive and the door to door service was awesome. 2 years later, our son wanted to move closer to home, so we once again called A1. The car didn’t fare too well to my son’s driving. It was in need of multiple repairs, and he was worried something might happen during transport. I explained to Joe the situation, and after getting all the details on the Pontiac’s condition, he agreed to help. Just in case, the driver inspected it carefully and was even more careful loading it onto the truck. I called a couple times to check its condition and the driver also sent me regular texts letting me know it was ok and how much he had to go until the destination. My son was technically the client, so I was happy he took the time to inform me as well. I give A1 Auto Transport my honest praise and thanks for their great service!”
