Hey Ladies,

I am wondering if anyone on here has had anything shipped directly to the resort instead of carrying it on the plane? I spoke with Phoebe from Beaches Turks and she feels Customs might give me a problem if I have too many items...

Hey there,

 

I have gone to Fed Ex and looked into shipping my stuff down there as well and it's EXPENSIVE! thatswck.gif I was told it would be about $400 for a small box or suitcase from NYC, and you would have to pay the duty taxes for the box to come into the country. The best bet is to pack stuff in extra suitcases and have friends and family take one suitcase a piece, that's my plan!  Where are you in NYC?

DO NOT MAIL/FED EX ANYTHING DOWN TO THE T&C!!!!   Yes I am shouting, but I mean it.   Anything shipped on island is subject to a 36% import duty + shipping and clearing fees (yes, you would owe 36% of the value of items being shipped, if you ship $100 worth of items duty/taxes to the government is $36, not including the shipping fee and customs clearing fee).   You would have to include a receipt of all items for duty assessment.  if you do not include receipts, it would delay clearing and they can assess values as they see it!   It is WAY too expensive and too chancy on clearing problems to ship.   You should not have any problems with customs at the airport as all of the items you are bringing are going back off island.   You will be fine.   It is a lot cheaper to just pay for an extra suitcase or for someone to bring a suitcase or so down!   (I have lived here for more than 17 years....DO NOT ship it here!)

Beaches won't let you ship anything to the resort unless you are physically there to retrieve it.  Over the next year I will be dividing things I need to take and give them to other people that are going.  That way I don't have to take  it all.
