There are new special rules for smart phones, tablets, laptops, stuff like that.
I’ve never put any of those in a shipment, only in carryons.

We ship mostly things we’re giving away, tons of baseball equipment, clothing, etc. Things for our home there. Club sized bread flour, basmati rice, jugs of oil ship outside the drums/boxes for free.

I have never been assessed a tax in barrel shipping. I have not sent cell phones or electronics however. You need to register with customs as well. I have sent anything and everything.

Edited to note the maritime shipping or mudanza whatever AE prefers us to call it, is different than EPS. I don't get assessed customs tax either on EPS but you will for electronics
I registered with customs a few years ago. Wasn't an option. Now mandatory in order to receive packages by international carrier/ post services like EPS.

I understand the two are different hence the question and thank you for the information. Haven't decided yet whether or not i want to ship a barrel down here or sell and donate.

Good to have options for folks who need to ship things that won't fit in a suitcase or can't be bootlegged in by friends or family.

Question: Customs puts a $200 max value cap (zero import tax) on anything shipped in via companies like EPS, how do they make a value assessment on blue barrels packed full of items like books, shoes, artwork ect.?

PS.
I'm not a fan of Dominican Math.
That is all taken care of for you -- part of 'the service' a mudanza offers

As for TV's, tere is a specific charge per inch....my recent 43" was $225-250 to ship.
$350 to buy
