What you need to know about moving to Peru

If you are preparing to relocate to Peru, you will be getting a unique experience of rich indigenous traditions with a fast growing economy and high value real estate opportunities. A low cost of living affords the opportunity for those moving to Peru from the US or Canada to raise a family or enjoy retirement in a beautiful setting without breaking the bank to do it.

The modern, thriving capital of Lima has a warm and comfortable climate throughout most of the year. Arequipa, Trujillo, Cuzco and Chiclayo are other larger cities in Peru that have modern conveniences mixed with a rich history and spectacular scenery.

Peru is a very diverse country in geography and culture, considered the best culinary destination in the world, and also owns one of the 7 wonders with the fascinating Machu Picchu. Its population is influenced by the indigenous Incas and the rich Spanish colonial history, and has Spanish, Quechua and Aymara as official languages. Peru is at the same time a modern, progressive country with new infrastructures and housing, improving services for local population, expats and tourists, and lots of business opportunities.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to Peru

When moving from the USA or Canada to Peru you will want to transport as many of your personal belongings as possible to make your new home feel comfortable and welcoming.
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
● Cars and other vehicle shipping

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

We offer Ocean Shipping options to perform long distance moving at affordable rates to Peru, from the US and Canada.

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.

With our Less than Container service, you can share a container with other customers that are also shipping cargo to Peru. 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 Peru, 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 Peru?

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

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 Peru 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.

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.

Regulations for moving to Peru

At LAC, we simplify the transport of all of your belongings, but when shipping items like explosives, 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 moving to Peru, contact the Peruvian Consulate and Government travel offices in charge:
