Hi
Looking to furnish a holiday house in Mexico. Was thinking of trying to order a container of furniture from China and shipping to Mexico. Has anyone had experience here as i have heard that the customs in Mexico are difficult.

As this question is specific to Mexico I have moved it to the Mexico forum.
You are more likely to get the answers you need there.

I would banish that though. Mexico has very high tariffs against Chinese goods and you will pay a terrible price increase. Mexico makes furniture and many of the 'name brands' that you see in the USA are actually made in Mexico; especially leather furniture, etc. There is no need to ship 'coals to Newcastle'. If you are on Baja, I know that your sources of supply may be limited, but it would still be wise to shop in Mexico; perhaps Guadalajara would be a good choice. In fact, there are export furniture plants in nearby Ocotlan.

Thanks for that advice, part of me knew the answer, but just wanted to get other thoughts to confirm.

Yes I will have a good look around when I am back there in December.
