    Looking to ship alcohol to Canada.
    Can it be done?

    1. Mar 18, 2018 at 17:58 pm

      Hello Lamar
      The importation of alcohol into canada is highly restrictive and is governed by Federal and Local (provincial ) regulations. You can carry small quantities in your luggage which you carry but unaccompanied alcoholic bevrages are regulated by strict regulations as to quantity and alcoholic content.

    I would like to ship a car engine to Jamaica how do i go about that?

    1. Aug 26, 2017 at 21:22 pm

      hi Jov a car engine is considered a part hence there are no special requirements to import one into jamaica. just make sure you have your invoice, bill of lading (if you send it by ship ) or airway bill (if you send it by air) and identification . go to whichever port of entry and pay the duties and clear your engine. if you need more information just drop us a line via our contact form

    Susan, you are absolutely right. There are so many things that can go wrong when you have a lot on your mind.

  14. Nov 03, 2015 at 15:54 pm

    A packing list is a must! This is to ensure no things can be left out. Sometimes, we forget something important when our mind is pre occupied with many things. So, getting a list is a big help.

  15. Nov 02, 2015 at 04:20 am

    Thanks for a very clear guide. I am now sure what to do in moving. You have just cleared out the things I have in mind.

    1. Nov 03, 2015 at 19:24 pm

      So glad that Cheryl. Hope your move will be great. We will help you out where we can.
