Things to Account For.
The truth is that there are quite a lot of procedures to go through as well as a lot of paperwork to get verified by the Customs and Excise Department of Belize before you are given the right to drive off with your vehicle. To begin with, you will need to prove that you are the actual owner of the car and submit your passport and driver’s license to properly determine and verify your identity. Other documents include:
- Original invoice of purchase which has information such as VIN, number of chasses, mode, year and make of the car.
- License plates
- Emission certificates.
- Title deed clear of liens – if there is a lien a written authorization from the holder is necessary.
In the majority of cases, the import process will take about two weeks if everything goes as planned. However, the truth is that delays are not uncommon and this is why you need to discuss all the details with your transporter. Once the duties and customs taxes have been paid, you will have your vehicle handed to you.
The total shipping cost is going to be based on the method that you select, the fee of the shipping company as well as the taxes that you have to pay based on the CIF value of the car. Additionally, there are 2 shipping methods that you can choose from:
- Container shipping – this particular method involves your car to be stored within a sealed container and shipped like this. It’s convenient and it provides a lot of safety. What is more, you can choose between a 20ft and a 40ft container if you need to load it with other belongings.
- RORO shipping – this is a method which would require you to get your vehicle on a shipping deck by its own wheels where it would be safely strapped and secured. This is the cheapest and quickest water-bound method but you can’t ship anything but your car.
