What you need to know about moving 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 bordered by Belize and Guatemala is an ideal spot to raise a family or settle down after retirement.

Many expatriates and retirees moving to Belize settle in the Corozal District in the north just miles from the Mexican border. Other cities with larger 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, though bilingualism is very common, and most of the population also speak Spanish. In recent years, Belize has seen growth in area industries with some bigger restaurants and hotel chains starting to pop up. many businesses are still small, and locally owned and operated.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to Belize

LAC offers a wide range of long distance moving services to transport all your items 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

What modes of transportation can LAC offer for your moving to Belize from Canada and USA?

Belize’s proximity to the US and Canada allows us to offer options for Ocean Shipping to perform long distance moving at affordable rates.

● FULL CONTAINER LOAD (FCL)
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.

● LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)
With our Less than Container service, you can share a container with other customers that are also shipping cargo to Belize. This will save you money, but you will need to make sure all your personal effects are safely and securely packaged to prevent any damage inside the container during the shipping journey.

What general requirements and shipping documents will you need?

When shipping your belongings 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 we will be declaring on your Bill of Lading is correct, including:

● Your full name
● 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?

If you want to ship your vehicle, LAC has the best international shipping options.

● RORO SHIPPING
If you are looking to ship just a car or other vehicle, you may consider our cost-efficient roll on/roll off service, depending on how close you are to a RORO shipping port.
RORO shipping to Belize works with ocean carriers designed to internationally ship all kinds of wheeled vehicles including: cars, trucks, vans, buses, as well as construction and agricultural equipment.

● CONTAINER SHIPPING
If you need to ship both your vehicle and your household goods (such as furniture, electronics, home appliances or clothes) then 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.
