RSE works to eliminate the worries and nightmares of getting your cherished belongings to Ecuador. We trust you’ll find Ecuador a multifaceted country of real freedom. If you have decided, or are deciding, to make Ecuador your home, the team at Relocation Services of Ecuador (RSE) can help you.
There are many questions customers have when moving to Ecuador. One of those is, “How do I get my household goods to Ecuador, and what can I bring?” The team at RSE will answer these questions.
You may hear horror stories about some Expats’ experiences trying to ship their personal items to Ecuador—stories like
There are many people who attempt to ship their personal belongings into the country themselves, but quickly learn that while you may save a few dollars on the front end, you could find yourself paying thousands of dollars on the back end dealing with issues you weren’t aware of regarding its arrival. Hiring a reputable company with the knowledge, expertise and contacts, and with a clear understanding of customs laws, is a far better way to go.
Since November 2009, Paul and his team have successfully shipped in/out over 650 containers to Ecuador(June 2020), averaging between five and six containers each month. Considering they manage the process from start to finish, you realize that’s a lot of paperwork (from your home in your country of origin to your door anywhere in Ecuador).
From the first inquiry by phone they help you understand the process and walk you through each step so that there are no surprises along the way. Paul insists on having a conversation with every potential client, so they understand the scope of the project and he can get a clear idea of what they are looking for and advise them on their best course of action.
Once you have all the proper documentation, Paul helps you determine the appropriate size container for your household goods. There are three container sizes:
20’ container – 8’ wide x 8’ high x 20’ long – fits the contents of a two-bedroom apartment.
40’ container – 8’ wide x 8’ high x 40’ long – fits the contents of an average three-bedroom home.
40’ HC container – 8’ wide x 9’ high x 40’ long – the largest container offered, and it’s the exact same price as a 40’ standard container to ship.
“We don’t leave the office at the end of the day until every question has been answered satisfactorily for our customers. We pride ourselves on our communication. We push ourselves to offer the highest level of customer service to our clients.”
If you are thinking about shipping a container of goods to Ecuador, first and foremost it’s a good idea to understand what you are NOT allowed to bring with you:
To assist in making this process as painless as possible, Relocation Services of Ecuador provides a detailed inventory spreadsheet that you can use. Relocation Services of Ecuador have delivered containers all over the country including Cuenca, Quito, Salinas, Vilcabamba, Cotacachi, Loja, Olon, Puerto Lopez, Puerto Cayo, Santa Marianita, Manta, Crucita, Canoa, Otavalo, Jama and even the Amazon. They have a team on this end that will unload your container for you—a personal service that is included as part of the package.
*All prices relate to costs in Ecuador of the same quality appliance as in the US.
Many people might think that shipping a container is too expensive and they look at replacing all of their household items once they get here, but check out the comparison chart above which shows the average cost of an appliance in the US vs. buying it new in Ecuador. As you can see, just in the cost of replacing five major appliances, you could have brought a 20’ container to Ecuador with all of your belongings. Another consideration is that furniture made in Ecuador is made for Ecuadorian sized people, and can be uncomfortable for average Americans, unless you have it custom made, which can be expensive.
From the first telephone consultation they help you understand the process and guide you through every step so that there are no surprises along the way.
Once the container arrives in Guayaquil, Paul or Nathaly personally travel to Guayaquil to open and inspect the contents.
Since November 2009, Paul and his team have successfully shipped over 350 containers into Ecuador. They average between 5 and 6 containers each month.
Many people might think that sending a container is too expensive and it is not.
Review of Paul Wilches and Relocation Services of Ecuador
Paul Wilches, of Relocation Services of Ecuador made our move stress-free and easy. We hired him after a terrible experience with another shipper. He stepped in and made everything right. Paul charged less for a 20 foot container than the previous shipper did for two lift vans and a kayak, even though he had to correct all her mistakes. We were so impressed with his consistent communication with us, letting us know where our goods were every step of the way, and how to prepare for each next step. His staff was equally helpful, and professional, going above and beyond the call of duty. We truly knew we were in good hands once Paul and his crew took over our shipment. We learned through a mutual facebook friend that Paul’s beloved father had passed away on Easter. Paul was steady as a rock and continued to call us and work on delivering our goods even in the midst of his grief. His professionalism and integrity are above reproach and most assuredly made his departed father proud.
Our goods were delivered to our home and unloaded. We did not have to lift a finger except to check boxes off our list as they were carried in. We highly recommend Paul Wilches, and Relocation Services of Ecuador to anyone needing professional moving services. Not only are his services impeccable, but Paul is also a man of excellence and integrity who puts the needs of his clients first. Now that our business with Paul has concluded we look forward to knowing him as a friend and hopefully dining with him in our home someday.
