    Question Ship A barrell door to door to DR from Florida

    I know this has been addressed in the past, but I can't seem to find it in ALL the threads..........SO, I figured I would put all the "key" words in the title so that the next time someone searches it will be much easier to find the answer.

    SO, my question is :

    Does anyone have any updated info on shipping a barrell (those blue plastic barrells) of "stuff" (food, clothes, toys, small household stuff) from FLORIDA (preferably Orlando area), "door to door" to the Dominican Republic???

    Thanks for any updated info...........

    I think that is backwards.... should be $100 for the barrel and $25 for the freight

    From NYC $120/barrel + $35/shipping

    William, from NY it's $115 to ship a barrel [with Emb. Bella Vista] plus the cost of the barrel [$25-40 depending on where you get it]. Boxes are $75 to ship one, $200 to ship 3.

    Contact Carmen Cargo Express in Orlando and ask them.

    Carmen Cargo Express Inc
    631 N Semoran Blvd
    Orlando, FL 32807

    407-380-2627
    We use them to ship boxes door-to-door...
    (They pick up in Orlando, but we take ours there from Tampa)

    They can advise about the barrels I believe,

    They don't seem to happen, or perhaps are built into the price...... don't ask

    My daughter sent me one but the one you got from Don in Tampa is just as good.

    Here it is:

    Larimar Envios TElf 305-*362-8700 Ellos buscan en todo el estado de la florida.

    They pick up and are in Orlando and Miami..

    Has never, ever, happened to us in 30+ years. No tax. No duty. Door to door delivery.

    Once in a great while the guy delivering it will ask can he look inside the box/barrel for 'contraband' - my spunky mother-in-law tells them no, haha.
