    Default Aduanas Ayuda...Thumbs up or Down!

    I just got word that order of bedding/towels is in Miami. Also got word that the forwarder wants $750 and 3 weeks minimum to get them here thru Aduanas. I COULD SCREAM. Wont help.

    Is it worth or possible to bring them in suitcases? at 50lbs each limit for extra bags? Is this a recipe for anguish beyond belief and confiscated goods? along with fees?

    Thumbs up or thumbs down please.

    What are you getting that you cannot find here in the dr? 750 bucks???? I'm pretty sure you can find a few bedding sets for that price, any photos??

    miesposo brought 3 sets from his trip to america, in a suitcase. it was worth paying for an extra luggage. that and 20 shirts plus 13 pairs of trousers

    seriously, man, how many times do we have to say: DO NOT SHIP ANYTHING OF THE VALUE ABOVE 200 DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    if you want to bring heavy and bulky stuff it is better to bring in a barrel or a box.

    I bring towels and bedding back from the US all the time. I have been known to bring a pillow or two. I have never had a problem coming into the country with it. Agree with DV8 100% pay for the extra luggage, less headaches.

    Please provide, weight, volume, and size of shipment. A more educated answer may be provided with the knowledge.

    You can't change shippers now. Maybe you can have them sent to a cousin in Miami? (My sister is moving there and would LOVE the housewarming gift, thank you SO much, you are SO generous!)...

    The issue now is do you want them for an ADDITIONAL 750 bucks.. We assume that is bucks.. right? because who would be screaming over pesos.

    I had a similar issue of my curtains. Very Very expensive very plain curtains.

    Actually there are very good bedding and towels available here in capital.. 400 thread count, Egyptian cotton ,. all that.

    Maybe you can have them return them to the store for a credit to your account?

    Yes. Dollars. They are hotel linens. 315 lbs of towels and sheets. 250TC, tone on tone sheets and hand, bath and face towels.
    I looked at La Sirena, Cuesta, Plaza Lama and the prices for good sheets were crazy considering the quantity I needed for business - 48+ sets....

    I will explore other forwarders for future...thanks for all advice.
