Everyone who moves does it their way. Some bring stuff, some do not. If you choose to there are a few MUST DO's to make the process smoother.
Talk to your rep on this end (Ecuador) and run everything by them. Acutally ask them how they want it done, then double check with them. Do not relay on your US agent to do it for you. You might get a surprise if you choose ignorance over diligence.
The paper work involved shipping to Ecuador was far different from our move to Aruba.
If you do your own checking and double checking you will save a ton of headaches, and some green.
Get references for who you use. Remember to be patient and call for updates.
Send us an email if you have questions about what to expect or how the process works from someone who is not trying to sell you anything.
