What you need to know about relocating to Belize

Nestled into the eastern coast of Central America with dense rainforests and miles of secluded beaches, Belize is becoming a more popular relocation destination every year. Whether you enjoy searching the jungles for ancient Mayan ruins or relaxing on the sprawling coastline of the Caribbean Sea, this small country is an ideal spot to raise a family or settle down after retirement.

Many expatriates and retirees relocating to Belize settle in the Corozal District in the north, just miles from the Mexican border. Other cities with large populations of expats include San Pedro, Placencia, and San Ignacio.

The only former British colony in Central America, English is the official language in Belize. However bilingualism is very common, and most of the population also speak Spanish. In recent years, Belize has seen growth in several industries with fancy restaurants and modern hotel chains starting to pop up. Nevertheless, many businesses are still small, and locally owned and operated.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to Belize

When moving to Belize from the USA or Canada, you will want to transport as many of your personal belongings as possible, to make your new home feel comfortable and welcoming.
That is why LAC offers a wide range of long distance moving services to transport all your personal effects in the safest, most secure, and cost-efficient way possible:

● Shipping household goods to Belize, such as furniture, electronics, home appliances or clothes
● Transporting personal effects, valuable artwork, and family heirlooms
● Cars and other vehicle shipping

What mode of transportation is best for shipping household goods to Belize?

To perform long distance moving at affordable rates to Belize, FCL ocean shipping is the best option.

Full Container Load, or FCL
, is a method of intermodal or oceanic transportation that gives you exclusive access and control over your own shipping container.
Because you are not sharing the space, you are fully in charge when it comes to the safety and the security of your personal belongings.
Also, shipping your household goods and furniture to Belize by ocean container will allow you to save a considerable amount of money, compared to other shipping methods such as air freight.

What shipping documents will you need to move to Belize from the US or Canada?

When shipping your household goods and furniture to Belize, you will need to be ready to supply documents with a list of all items being shipped. To avoid any delay or issues, make sure all the information that will be declared on your Bill of Lading is correct. This includes:

● Your full name and other personal information
● Every detail regarding the personal belongings you are shipping with us
● The origin and destination ports
● Your complete and accurate address at origin and destination.

Do you have a vehicle to ship to Belize?

We offer the best solutions to help you move your car when relocating to Belize.

Are you looking to ship just your personal vehicle? Then you may consider our roll on/roll off service, depending on how close you are to a RORO shipping port.
RORO is the fastest and most cost-efficient way to internationally ship all kinds of wheeled vehicles, including cars, trucks, vans, or buses, as well as construction and agricultural equipment.

Do you plan on shipping both your vehicle and household goods to Belize (such as furniture, electronics, home appliances, or clothes)? In that case, you should consider moving your car with the rest of your belongings in a 40 ft ocean container. This will be the most affordable and convenient shipping option that will keep all your personal effects, vehicles included, in the same transportation cluster.


Customs Regulations when Relocating to Belize

At LAC, we simplify the transport of all of your belongings. But when shipping items like food, fruits, silver, gold and artwork, you need to consider that there might be restrictions and regulations.

If you have any questions regarding the required documentation needed when shipping personal belongings, household goods and furniture to Belize, then you should contact the Belize Consulate and Government travel offices in charge.
