Can anyone recommend a good shipping company that barges items over from the mainland to Ambergris? I have been told that they vary in rates. I have an entire truckload of household goods coming over.

Caribbean Queen which is the boat for Caribbean Depot (sorry don't have the number handy, but someone will post it) has always been great for me with small stuff...cases of paint etc. And it's to your door. But, price wise for big stuff I don't know....is there someone else?

Love it - ask 3 people the same question and get 3 different answers - so Belize!! I would have to give my vote for Krystal (226 2089). All the stuff I bring in from the US comes with them to the island and that includes all the equipment which they always take great care with.

I got the shipping set up for Nov 16th, now there is another hurdle. I am driving my truck onto the barge then unloading it on Ambergris then putting the truck back on the barge to the city. i was told that I need a permit to bring the truck off the barge even though it will be going right back on it.

Does anyone know who I would contact to get this permit? A phone number would be helpful, I'm still in the states

Try 226-4286 or 226-2198, the first # should work . However they do change #'s often the second #(town Board )should be able to help .Ask for Chris from Transport .
