What you need to know about moving to Dominican Republic

With sparkling sea and miles of pristine beaches, it is no secret that the Dominican Republic is the second-largest Caribbean vacation destinations in the region and one of the most popular getaways in the world. What you may not know is that people moving to the Dominican Republic will join a growing residential population of upwards to 10 million people, with 1 million of them living in the capital city of Santo Domingo.

Situated on the island of Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic boasts of one of the largest economies in Latin America and the second-largest in the Caribbean, with substantial imports from Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, USA, Taiwan, and Germany.

The economic advantages of moving to the Dominican Republic from the US or Canada are overshadowed only by the incredible beauty of the nation’s coral reefs, spectacular beaches, tropical rainforests, and surreal and serene waterfalls dotted throughout the countryside.

What items can LAC transport for your relocation to the Dominican Republic

When moving from the USA or Canada to the Dominican Republic 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 the Dominican Republic from Canada and USA?

The Dominican Republic’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)
You can share a container with other customers shipping cargo to Mexico with Less than Container, or LCL. 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 the Dominican Republic, 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 the Dominican Republic?

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 the Dominican Republic 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.

Custom Regulations for moving to the Dominican Republic

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.
