Container Shipping; Veracruz MX to Cartegena CO

Hey everybody,

 

My wife and I are looking to ship our pickup and camper via 40' High top from Mexico to Columbia in early September.

We're having some trouble finding a shipper. We're trying to avoid RORO for security concerns.

Has anyone shipped this route or have information on agents/shippers who can provice us the service? How about shipping buddies?

 

Thanks,

KP

For Sale Off Road Mini Bus / Casa Rodante Central America

We are an American couple, we drove our Ford E450 Diesel minibus with offroad tires and California plates throughout Baja, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nica, Costa, and Panama for 1 full year in June. We have to get back home and are planning on selling this month (May). It is the most perfect, beautiful home you will ever see with a full kitchen, big bed, solar panels, wood floors and plenty of storage. Plus the engine is working great, well maintained and super strong! We've never had problems aside from a tire blow out on a gnarly road in Baja, MX.

How challenging is it to sell a car in Panama after driving from Mexico?

Probably depends on the quality of the car, but do people actually have luck selling on these forums and FB groups?

Seriously considering traveling by car but am deathly afraid of not being able to sell the car off.

Change of Ownership in Mexico as Foreign

We have just bought a camper van in Mexico. We've got Spanish Nationality and now, we can't make the change of ownership. We have tried everything and we have tried it in several states in Mexico. I wonder how people do change the ownership in other countries. How do you buy a car in another country? What can I do? Do I need to own the van in order to cross borders in LatinAmerica? 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi there!

We're thrilled to pass it on to other road trippers who have a sense of adventure and aren't afraid to get their hands greasy from time to time. :)  Looking to sell in Mexico in December or US in December / January.

FOR SALE -- 1998 Ford Explorer / USA title -- Dec'16 or Jan'17 in SOUTH MEXICO / GUATEMALEA / HONDURAS

Hey guys,

We are on a roadtrip from Atlanta (USA) to Honduras. Started the trip in Sep 2016 and are planning to be done in Jan 2017. 

For this purpose we bought our neighbours 1998 Ford Explorer (he was the first owner and a car enthusiast, hence the car was/is in perfect shape) in Sep 2016. 

Looking for other 'The Americas' Drivers along our route

Hey there,

Here is our route for the next couple of weeks. We're currently at number 10 which is Arches National Park.

We'd love to meet other people who are on the way to drive the Americas. No matter if you're going North to South or the other way around. 

We're traveling with truck and tiny trailer and two young kids and want to be in Baja by Mid / End October.

Cheers,

Inge

Canceling a Mexican Temp Import.... Outside Mexico?

I was unable to cancel my mexican temp vehicle import on exiting Mexico because there was no Banjercito office at the Tijuana border crossing as I had assumed. I have previously exited Mexico with a vehicle at Nogales, and there was a Banjercito office located at the official border crossing. I assumed this would be the case at all border crossings.

On crossing at the Tijuana / San Diego crossing (and waiting for 3 hours in line), I did not come accross the Banjercito, and of course the border officers were not able to assist me at all.

Mexican TIP Renewal

I have a californian registered van and am currently in Southern Baja.  When I crossed the border into Mexico I recieved a 180 day tourist visa and TIP, expecting to exit into Guatamala within the six months.  I have been taking things a little slow and now have just a month left on both before they expire.

I am thinking of driving to Mexico city and getting a flight out to renew my visa, though this will leave me with my TIP expiring.  I am unable to return to the States to renew it as I am not a US citizen and am required to go to a non adjoining country before I can return.
