I just used Frank Ehman's shipping service moving my truck down from the states. He helped me locate the truck and knew the in's and out's of getting thru Mexico and Belize not to mention he saved me a TON of $$$$ compared what I would have paid in traditional shipping.

His contact info is belizeae@gmail.com or 628-8130.

Feel free to contact me if you need to confirm a referral.
PM me and I will send my number.

es we did drive through Mexico following Frank who sort of ran interference for us. Frank, unlike us, does speak Spanish and that was very helpful; he also knows the routine of when to pay bribes, to whom and how much.

Frank likes to emphasize that this is "not for the faint of heart," and I'll confirm that it is no Sunday drive in the country. It is work. But once you get that idea that it is gong to be somewhat of an ordeal, it can be a fairly enjoyable drive. You are driving through a highly militrarized zone. But the odds of getting through unscathed are hugely in your favor, particularly, if you escorted by Frank.

There are some things that are out of Frank's control: for example, how long might you be held up at the border, or traffic jams caused by one thing or another. These unpredictable events caused our having to sleep in the car two nights, but we made the best of it.

Resilience, a positive outlook, paying attention and listening to Frank, these are all things that will help you.

In short, I would recommend Frank as guide. He is all business and committed to his mission, whether it is 'protecting the load,' or caring for his charge. I'll be happy to answer any specific questions you might have. Feel free to write.

God bless you and watch over you all on your trip.
