Default Looks like we're finally moving! Advice please

So excited, I received my offer letter today so we're moving down with the contents of our house.

Any advice on letting/rentals agents in St James, shipping from London to Barbados firms and brokers would be great.

Also, quick question. Is import tax just on VAT for vehicles or is it the value of the car itself?

Thanks so much xx

I would check with a customs broker on the car, there are all sorts of duties assessed--for that reason unless you have a duty free/ VAT free concession most people don't bring cars in. It's just not worth it.

Hi, you can look on www.cariblist.com and get some idea of properties/agents in Barbados, and you can select by Parish (St James) etc. Have used Hannah Properties previously - there are loads on the island - and typically more than one advertise the same properties.
