What you need to know about relocating to Chile

With its solid, steady economy, relocating to Chile appeals to expats and retirees from the US and Canada. Santiago is one of the most enjoyable capital cities in the entire world to live in. Modern high rises dot a sprawling urban development with a backdrop of breathtaking views of the Andes Mountains.

A modern country that sits down the eastern sliver of South America coastline, Chile’s landscape features spectacular mountains, miles of beachfront property, and a diverse and abundant indigenous wildlife.

While Spanish is the official language of the country, the diverse culture population includes many English speakers and access to quality schools. The cost of living in Chile is similar to many western countries, with more expensive housing in the Santiago Metropolitan Region compared to outlying provincial areas.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to Chile

When moving to Chile 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:

● Moving household goods overseas, 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 Chile?

To perform long distance moving at affordable rates to Chile, 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 Chile 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 Chile from the US or Canada?

When shipping your household goods and furniture to Chile, 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 Chile?

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

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 Chile (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 Chile

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 Chile, then you should contact the Chilean Consulate and Government travel offices in charge.
