Moving From Texas to Puerto Rico

Moving to Puerto Rico from Texas can feel like moving to a different country, but Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory populated by U.S. citizens. However, like moving to Hawaii, your move is going to look a little different. You will need to figure out how to get your belongings to an island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.

Moving Overseas from Canada

For overseas moves, most people use a moving company that specializes in more complex transitions. This is because most people simply hire a box truck when they move and just don’t have experience with shipping containers or commercial air transport options.

Not to mention, shipping by container or air has additional requirements. You will need to provide documentation to accompany your shipment, and the logistics of an overseas move can quickly get complicated. Here is what you need to know about moving to Puerto Rico from Texas.

What does it cost?

When shipping your belongings, you can choose to ship a full or half container. You can ship a 20 ft container (half container) to Puerto Rico for as little as $3,700 or a full container for just a few hundred more.

Most people can ship a vehicle to Puerto Rico from Florida for less than $3,500. Have something extra special you want to import? Antiques and rare vehicles can be moved via air freight.

Moving household goods to Puerto Rico

Moving to Puerto Rico from Texas is just like moving to Idaho. If you move to Puerto Rico from anywhere in the United States, you will not need to pay customs duty or taxes. However, there is still paperwork to be done. The U.S. Census Bureau requires this Electronic Export Information filing for any shipments valued over $2,500 unless the federal government has exempted them. This filing can be handled online through the Automated Export System (AES).

You will need to include a detailed inventory with values and serial numbers as applicable, along with your standard bill of lading.
