Container shipping is one of the most difficult aspects of the moving industry. It requires the coordination of numerous tasks, including determining the proper truck size to load massive packages, loading containers, determining shipping freights, suitable cargo airports for air freight, and so on.

Three Movers prepares a detailed schedule for you ahead of time. You won’t have to bother about booking specific trucks, signing agreements and paperwork, crossing international borders, or even packing the boxes yourself. For top-notch international services, our brand name is fairly well-known throughout the United States. If you are shipping to Belize, you’ll want to work with us.

What Is The Process and Our Servicing?

The task is challenging, but breaking it down into small segments with the help of our highly consultative team makes it a lot easier.

  • Before Booking a Container: The best option for shipping heavy items, such as furniture and appliances overseas, is to use a professional service. Our organization has a strong packaging team that is qualified to handle items according to their specifications.
  • Deciding on the Vehicle: You must also choose the heavy-duty vehicle that will deliver the containers to the docks safely. To make this happen, Three Movers supplies a range of trucks driven by experienced drivers.
  • Shipping Costs and Restrictions: Checking for the freights will help you manage your money wisely. The cost of shipping a container to Belize from the United States ranges from $1,841.40 to $3,540.90, depending on the container and the peaks of the year. It’s also important to think about the legal concerns of items forbidden by the Belize customs and how much tax you’ll have to pay.
  • Choosing the type of Container Load: There are two basic types of container load to choose from: Full Container (FCL) and Less Than a Container (LCL). Rather than choosing randomly and allowing advertisers to lead you to conclusions, you should decide which type is appropriate for your luggage. Our experienced experts will give you the information you need to make an informed decision on your own.
  • Reaching the Destination and Unloading: International shipments are loaded onto designated ships and sailed for their destination once they arrive at the port. Once they have arrived, make sure you provide us with all of the papers needed to confirm your container’s arrival at the dock.

What Restrictions Should I be Aware of While Shipping to Belize?

The Registration of Merchant Shipping Act, enacted by Belize’s government in 1989, made ship registry and ownership easier. As a result, allowing international ships to enter their docks without rigorous legality has become quicker.

However, to minimize difficulties, proper contact with the docking authority is critical. The government also offers some basic background checks to confirm what you’re bringing in, which our staff can readily handle.

What Are The Charges?

We are quite vocal about keeping you informed about market rates that are variable to peak seasons, which are often mid-August or mid-October. We confirm the rates based on the container you selected or the products being carried.

Moving to Belize might cost as little as $877.80 for household goods and $2,674.00 for vehicle shipping. We also have a system in place for charging varying prices for relocating a whole house or simply one room in a container.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Documents Are Necessary When Shipping to Belize?

While the majority of these documents are required, some are dependent on the type of product being shipped as well as the origin and destination locations.

● Commercial and Proforma Invoices
● Bills of Lading
● Packing List
● Shipper’s Letter of Instructions (SLI)
● Automated Export System (AES) Filing
● Certificate of Origin (CO)
● Incoterms
● Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
● Operational Instructions
● Shipping Under a Letter of Credit

Make sure to check the required documents of Belize for shipping a container. You can also ask our customer service to know the exact documents you need to begin shipping your container.

What Is a Bill of Lading?

One of the most vital documents in the shipment process is the bill of lading (BOL). A bill of lading is necessary to transport any goods and serves as both a receipt and a contract. A properly completed BOL certifies that the carrier has received the shipment as specified and is committed to transporting it to the consignee in excellent condition.

The information on the bill of lading is crucial because it dictates personnel’s activities all along the shipment’s path – where it’s going, how much it weighs, how it’s billed, and how it’s handled on the dock and trailers. It might be prepaid or pay as you go.

What Happens If I Lose the Bill of Lading?

You’ll need an Authorization letter from the shipper to prove ownership, a Letter of Credit to protect the carrier from any consequences of releasing the cargo to an unauthorized party, and an endorsed bank guarantee to provide carriers with some form of monetary compensation in the event of cargo misdelivery.

The Shipping Liners, for the most part, go to great efforts to safeguard themselves against losses caused by missing Bills of Ladings. They do this by requiring bank guarantees and indemnifications. Even so, the shipper carrier’s decision on whether or not to transfer the goods to you is final.

What Kind of Taxes, Duties, and/or Fees Do I Have to Pay When Shipping to Belize?

In most cases, you have to pay customs fees.

Customs refers to the charges, levies, and taxes imposed on products moved from one country to another in international transportation. These fees vary by item and country, and they are in addition to the carrier’s shipping expenses. Every nation has its own set of rules and regulations, but regardless of where you’re sending, our online shipping tools can help you plan ahead.

What’s the Difference between Shipping Taxes and Shipping Duties?

Duty costs are incurred whenever a product is imported into a country. The government sets these criteria to determine how easily a product may enter the country.

Shipping taxes are calculated using a standard proportion of additional cost added to every imported cargo entering the country, as determined by the government. It may be referred to as Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST) depending on the country (GST). In terms of execution, VAT and GST are quite similar, although each is applied to various items depending on the nation into which they are imported.

What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Broker, and an NVOCC?

Freight forwarders are specialists who deal in the logistics and physical transportation of freight, and freight forwarding, and are related to the supply chain. They communicate with anybody involved in the exporting procedure who manages or is aware of a shipment traveling by truck, boat, aircraft, or a combination of these modes of transportation. Freight forwarders are responsible for compiling and filing a number of documents and compliance filings.

A customs broker is a private entity, company, organization, or business registered, regulated, and authorized by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to help importers and exporters in complying with US government import and export regulations.

A Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) is a firm that offers all of the same ocean freight services as a conventional carrier but does not own or operate the vessel. They set their own prices for selling space on these liner services and enter into volume-based ocean freight agreements with various shipping lines that sail on the targeted trade routes. NVOCCs print their own bills of lading, which serve as a transportation contract between the shipper and the consignee.

What Types of Goods Am I NOT Allowed to Ship to Belize?

The following may not be imported to Belize: Peanut butter, jam, jellies, pasta, wheat flour, rice, peppers and pepper sauces, beer, alcohol, spirits, carbonated beverages, cigarettes, wood products, pharmaceutical medicines, pesticides, telecommunication equipment, certain gases and chemicals deemed harmful to the environment, and fuel are among the restricted items. If there is a surplus on the domestic market, beans and rice, like many other locally produced agricultural goods. Check with your shipping company for what is allowed before packing your shipping container.

Customer Reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!
