I'm glad I ran into this site, I think it just might be the site I was looking for with my up and coming move to Puerto Rico. I only have a million questions, I'm hoping to find some answers here if some of you would be kind enough to reply if you know the answer or can offer advice.
I took early retirement from Intel back in 1999 and moved to Costa Rica, I've lived in Nicaragua and Panama as well until 2010 when I returned to the mainland to sell my place and get a social security number for my new Nicaraguan wife. I was planing to be back in the US for a short time and return to Central America, but plans don't always pan out, it took a lot longer to cut loose the remaining strings I have to the mainland, but now I'm ready to leave. The main problem, I wanted to return to Central America, but my wife, once she got use to the USA didn't want to ever return to Nicaragua. So, Puerto Rico is a compromise for us.
I'm in the valley of decision about shipping or selling our car. From what information I've been able to get, with the value of my car it would only cost $820 in taxes.
I would drive to Jacksonville, FL to have it shipped to SJU P.R. for around $1050. That seems fair to me, unless someone else knows of a way to get it ship here a lot cheaper, (which is not always the best way to go)
My question is this, does anyone know of an agent or service that will clear my car at the SJU port, paying for the taxes, insurance, registration for plates and whatever else is needed so I can pick-up the car and drive it away. If anyway knows of a service or person that can do this, please let me know so I can find out what the charge or cost would be to have my car cleared.
Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to getting to know and meet some of you all.
