Cost of Movers Canada to Mexico

International Moving


With experts like Three Men and a Truck, moving to Mexico from Canada has never been easier. Working with our shipping partners, we can help you find the most cost-effective and safest way to transport your goods. Most international shipments occur by shipping container. Full containers offer 12 meters of space to pack your belongings and should be big enough to pack a two-bedroom home with ease. Half containers are perfect for shipping a vehicle or for smaller homes.

The cost to ship a full container to Mexico will depend on how you choose to send it. By road, your shipping container will cost $10,100-$16,700 and it will arrive in Mexico in 5-9 days. By sea, your full container will cost $7,600-$12,600 and arrive in 3-5 weeks. You can choose what works for you based on your budget and timelines.

While you will not have to pay customs duty or taxes on most of your household items, you will need to present paperwork and other documents during the customs declaration process. Here are some of the items you need to prepare for your move:

  • Passport: Your Canadian passport must be up to date and valid.
  • Resident card: You will need to get a temporary or permanent resident card. A temporary resident card is appropriate if you expect to move out of Mexico at some time in the future.
  • Bill of lading (BL or BOL): The bill of lading is a standard document used when shipping overseas. If you ship your belongings by air, you would present an Airway Bill instead.
  • You will need a box-by-box inventory of everything you are importing.
  • Proof of last entry date: Here you may show when your passport was stamped, or a copy of your last airline ticket.
  • Customs Declaration Letter: This letter will include your new address in Mexico, as well as the necessary acknowledgements and Declaration of Household Goods.
  • Proof of your new address
  • Power of Attorney (Letter of empowerment): This will give the customs agent authorization to process your goods.

What’s not allowed?

Mexico’s trade restrictions are similar to those of other countries. You are not prohibited to bring weapons, food items, or non-native plants or seeds. Some items are restricted, such as prescription drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. For these items, you will need to respect limitations on the amount you may bring and provide documentation for all prescription drugs you carry with you or ship.

Can I bring my vehicle to Mexico?

You are in luck. Mexico only permits vehicle imports from the U.S. or Canada, so your Canadian vehicle is eligible for import. Here is what you’ll need:

  • Clean title for your vehicle -or- permission from your creditor to bring the vehicle to Mexico.
  • Proof of vehicle registration in Canada
  • Proof of Mexican car insurance
  • Canadian driver’s license

What about taxes or duty? While you may be able to import your household goods to Mexico without taxes, you will be assessed a 16% IVA, based on the book value of your vehicle.

Once your vehicle has been imported, it must be nationalized. This process is best handled by an experienced overseas shipper, as the rules can be complex and hard to understand. You will need to obtain a permit from the Secretary of the Economy if your vehicle is less than 10 years old.

Three Men and a Truck

When moving internationally, it’s important to know what you don’t know, but even that can be hard to do. Most people couldn’t even tell you what the rules are to move to their own country, never mind another country that speaks a different language. Working with an international moving company like Three Men and a Truck can give you valuable peace of mind. With our international shipping expertise and vast network of overseas shipping partners, we have what it takes to achieve your perfect relocation.
