Movers Puerto Rico To Mainland USA

Movers Puerto Rico To Mainland USA

When Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico, some people were surprised to learn that this tropical archipelago is indeed part of the United States. The truth is the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has been a territory of the United States since the end of the Spanish-American War in 1917. Natural born citizens of Puerto Rico are American citizens, which means that moving to the U.S. mainland from Puerto Rico is more logistics than paperwork.

While moving to the mainland from Puerto Rico is not an international move, it is an overseas move. Overseas movers have the expertise to handle the necessary logistics. This guide will cover the basics of moving from Puerto Rico to the mainland.

How much does moving from Puerto Rico cost?

When you ship to the U.S. Mainland from Puerto Rico, you can choose from many ports on the East Coast, from Texas to Maine. The cost of shipping to the mainland will vary depending on where you are going in the country. For East Coast destinations, shipping will be fairly simple. If you are moving to the West Coast, you will have a more complex and expensive process, with coordination required between overseas and overland shippers.

To provide a baseline, shipping from Puerto Rico to ports in Florida will cost less than $4,000 for a half container, and up to $4200 for a full one. Vehicles can be shipped to Florida for less than $4,500. Most people can ship a vehicle by container to the mainland for less than $4,500. The truth is it can get complicated.

Working with overseas Puerto Rico moving companies like Three Movers will ensure a safe, easy transition, no matter which port you are sailing to.

Moving household goods to the U.S. mainland

Moving to the U.S. mainland from Puerto Rico is the same as if you were moving from one town to the other. You don’t need a passport or visa, and you will not be asked to pay customs duty or taxes, however some good might be subjected to excise tax if you are moving to Puerto Rico from mainland.

However, because this is an overseas move, you will need to provide a comprehensive inventory, standard bill of lading, and a commercial invoice.

Can I ship my vehicle to Florida?

You are welcome to bring your vehicle from Puerto Rico to Florida, but you will need to collect some paperwork. Here are some of the documents you will be asked to provide:

  • Proof of ownership or lease – if your vehicle is subject to a lease agreement, you will need to have explicit permission from the leaseholder to transport your vehicle to the U.S. mainland.
  • U.S. driver’s license
  • Documentation to show your vehicle’s value
  • Bill of lading
  • Bill of sale or purchase invoice
  • EPA Standard Form 3520-1
  • Vehicle registration
