Fuel and tie-down Qs re shipping from Panama to Colombia

hi all,

Thanks for sharing such great info re shipping vehicles from Panama to Colombia. Two issues I have not seen addressed are:


1. do we need to provide our own tie-downs for securing our truck in the container or are those provided for us?

2. does our gas tank need to be nearly empty prior to loading?

3. We have a 5 gallon jerry can for extra diesel--anyone know if jerry cans are a problem prior to loading?

Average cost of shipping a 40' container from Panama to Colombia?

We are in the process to ship our vehicles across the Darién Gap and I was wondering what other travellers currently pay for a 40'HQ container from Colon to Catagena?

After getting a few quotes it seem the price went up segnificantly over the last few month. One company even want to have almost twice as much (around US 2900 all incl.) as we got quoted in the beginning of 2012.
Just a guess, but maybe that has something to do with the upcoming ferry service?

Update on Panama - Colombia Ferry

I've been in contact with the ferry company over the last few days as we plan our trip across. I've translated the most recent info and pricing, and made a page on Drive Nacho Drive about it. It looks like a few things have changed or been added since the last time it was mentioned on this forum.

All the best,
