Customs in Guayaquil




We are moving to Cuenca from US in October. We have all our paperwork for visas and an appointment with Ecuadorian Consulate in CT, USA next week. My question is about shipping some personal/household items. We have a small amount – mostly artwork, flat screen tv, computers, small appliances and have found a reasonably priced shipper. My problem is they do not handle customs, etc. in Ecuador and so far any company we have contacted to handle clearing and delivery to Cuenca are asking twice what the ocean freight is costing us. Is there any way we can hire someone local in Guayaquil and then a moving company to deliver our goods? Are import fees really that expensive? Estimated cost is well over $2,000.
