I plan on moving back down, this time for good. Wrote out a game plan and I’m right on schedule. There are a few things that I could use some help with,

I bought a Craigslist car here in the states, rolled it into the garage and island proofed it. New breaks, shocks, etc. There used to be a shipping company that allowed you to fill your car with personal contents before shipping. Is that still true and can anyone tell me which shipping company it is?

2) Is it still possible to get your food handlers card at the health clinic in Cruz Bay?

Cheers!

That option is no longer available.

If you put the car in a container you can put whatever you want in it.

Tropical shipping quote last week out of FL:
20ft container $4800
4-door jeep $1800

Containers are safer for your vehicle too. A friend of mine shipped a new truck down once without a container, and it arrived missing things like the hub caps, etc...

I received a quote two weeks ago from Top of Line Transport for a 20 foot container. Price was $5100.

Which shipping company do they use and what is the loading port?

I'd rather ship it using one of the roll on/roll offs than container. I'm not bringing that much with me, just the car and a few boxes.
