Just some info regarding importation of vehicles if anyone decides to do it.

 

http://cozumelnews.b...risis-pt02.html

 

I have been keeping up with comments from folks who are going through this process currently, and not all are as satisfied with the response times.  

 

But, it doesn't really matter what others have gone through, it only matters how it turns out for you.

I believe the 2500 figure came from people who are here with their cars and are trying to backdoor using a customs broker in Chetmul who then coordinates with a custom broker on the American border

The broker that Aruita mentioned is the same one Patricia friend used.  So, no back door there.

 

There is however what's called "Chocolate plates" which is the back door.   It can be a real headache for the uninformed.

 

The difference in the price could have something to do with age, and type of vehicle.  But, that's a guess on my part.

 

But, from many of the posts I have read from people currently in the process, the price appears to be running higher then 1,500 and closer to the 2K-2.5k figure, as well as a longer process time...but you won't know until you get into it.

 

Delays make sense seeing how there are a few thousand ex-pats who live in Q.Roo alone who are caught  with foreign plated vehicle that they want to nationalize.

 

I personally would always want my lawyer involved to ensure that I am dealing with the right person, doing the right thing on my behalf.

LOL do not know how you know who my friend used.  I have several friends who have accomplished this using different brokers.  One of the brokers I can not use because he uses the Belize boarder.  I will be using someone who will meet me at the Larado boarder.  If you google several different ways you will find a bunch of people in different areas who have not had any problems and got decent prices in a respectable time.  One must just be very careful to use registered brokers preferably with a recommendation.

That's great news for you.  Add a post on the details on how the process went.

 

Good luck.

I will, but it will not be until August for us.  And yes we are bringing it from the statees.  There are others who have been satisfied and if you search nationalizing cars on Mexconnect.com you will find recommendations for several brokers.

I called these guys today. Very professional on the phone his name was Ramone. He said if I emailed him all the ness. papers and $400 deposit it would take 3 hours he would have everything ready.. He didn't care what model car he said all the prices are the same for normal cars trucks and vans. He said they can do anything from 2007 and down 2007 was $1600 complete. 06 $1500 05 $1370 04 $1350 03 $1330. My 2002 Gmc Sierra was $1310 in Progresso they wanted 45,000pesos. My original plan was to drive the GMC out of Mexico and drive something newer in but now that I find out I can do this for $1350 I am probably going to make a trip up and nationalize my truck and turn around and drive back. None of the prices included $60 for the permit they put on your windshield to drive with no plates until you get to your home state.
I am also thinking to justify all this by going on a big shopping spree in Texas for a couple days and get all the stuff I wished I had brought before."  Mexconnect
