Re: Moving a boat from east coast to west coast via Mexico?

First off welcome to Sailnet, I see from your join date you are new here, as to your question I think the answer lies in itself. The reason you can't seem to find any information on a shipper to travel across Mexico is there probably aren't many and those that do don't get reviewed as they would here in the states. I would think by the time you factor in airfare, taxes, tarrifs, fees, bribes and assorted other expenses your cost to ship from Texas may not be all that much more. There are a ton of transport companies and hot shot drivers out of Houston, Port Arthur and Beaumont. Most importantly is these companies will be insured and provide a quote that will not be changed once your boat is loaded and on the trip.
