What you need to know about relocating to Nicaragua

The availability of tremendous real estate opportunities has resulted in many expatriates and retirees relocating to Nicaragua. The transportation professionals at Latin American Cargo (LAC) help facilitate relocations for families looking to take advantage of low property taxes, an affordable cost of living, and the scenic landscapes of this beautiful Central American country.

Nicaragua features a diverse culture with a mix of native Nicaraguans and expatriates looking to raise their families or enjoy retirement in what Mark Twain once described as “an amazing place for all.” Nicaragua was named one of the top 10 retirement destinations in the world by US News and World Report. People moving Nicaragua from the USA or Canada enjoy sunny skies, a delightful climate throughout the year, and one of the safest locations in all of Central America.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to Nicaragua

When moving to Nicaragua 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 Nicaragua, 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 Nicaragua?

To perform long distance moving at affordable rates to Nicaragua, FULL CONTAINER LOAD 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 Nicaragua 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 Nicaragua from the US or Canada?

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

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

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 Nicaragua (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 Nicaragua

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 Nicaragua, then you should contact the Nicaraguan Consulate and Government travel offices in charge.
