This post is a warning about working with or using the services of Gaston Etchart and his business called SAmericaXplorer (samericaexplorer.net). This man solicits his services for vehicle transport/shipment on a lot of overlander-type websites. We utilized his services to ship our vehicle from Cartagena to Houston, TX. He required an immediate and full payment for his services and all of the port charges and shipping fees. However, once we were in Colombia, we had to pay all of these costs in person.
