I asked a customs official here in Ecuador recently, “What’s the biggest mistake foreigners make when bringing their household goods to Ecuador?”
They often bring prohibited items…like exotic pets, loads of new clothes or shoes, used cars or tires, or handguns.
My Notes: After a certain amount, if you bring a lot of clothes they may think you are bringing them down to resell, which may inherit tariffs…used cars can only be brought to the country under special parameters…used tires are not allowed and handguns are not allowed either…just sport guns if you follow the suggestions I made here.
