Tony and Lisa Bell, from Florida

My husband Tony and I decided to move from Florida to Playa Del Carmen, MX. After much deliberation on whether we wanted to move personal belongings to Mexico, we decided to use Best Mexico Movers. This decision was made after much research on several international movers. We reached out to Chuck Bolotin and felt instantly comfortable with his knowledge of such an undertaking.

We began our relationship with Chuck in late 2018 as our condo was to be complete in 2019. Although we had many delays in the completion of our condo, Chuck kept in contact with us and answered many, many questions. We finally took possession of our condo in early 2021 !

Chuck and his team were very, very organized and made the move much simpler than I had imagined it would be. He provided step by step instructions and a very detailed checklist which kept us informed throughout the entire process. All of our belongings arrived safely ! It goes to show that not only does Chuck understand the process, but he uses the right people to accomplish such an undertaking!

We are very grateful to Chuck, Hannia and his entire team for making what could have been a very stressful adventure into a very smooth move ! We can’t thank you enough and will definitely be recommending their services to others!

Maybe “stuff” isn’t important to some people.

But maybe “stuff” is photos, art, a treasured hand-me-down desk from your grandmother, old photos and letters.

Maybe the thought of putting that on a truck and waving “Adios!” is scary.

You don’t need to be scared with Chuck and his team at your side.

At every step of the way, they give you as much time and help as you need. They take care of all the paperwork, ensure you follow all rules and regulations, that there’s no unexpected surprises.

Where they could make extra money in the process, they don’t. They actively work to make your move as efficient and cost-effective as possible.

Maybe some people can move to Mexico in a suitcase. That wasn’t us. And if that’s not you, both you *and* your stuff are in great hands with Chuck and his team.

I am a 75 year-old single woman who had a dream of moving to Puerto Vallarta for about 10 years. I also wanted to bring my old shabby white furniture, lots of quilting fabrics and sewing machines…and a tennis ball machine! I am now in PV and living my dream thanks to Chuck and his assistant Hannia.

I must say that the 6 weeks prior to the move were probably the most challenging of my life. As a friend said, I had deadlines daily. Covid, in addition to several hurricane warnings, also did not help.

Chuck and Hannia were fantastic. They were always available and able to help solve any problems that I encountered and I can still hear Hannia saying “no worries, everything will be fine!”  Chuck also always had a way of explaining the complexities of an international move in a way that I could understand.

I was also able to meet and spend time with Hannia’s family and I felt more like a family member than a customer. For an American moving to Mexico, it meant a great deal. Someday I hope to visit Guadalajara for a dinner at Hannia’s family restaurant and have a “Paris night cocktail.”

I followed Chuck and Hannia’s advice and everything arrived in PV in perfect condition. I will be forever grateful to Chuck and Hannia.  I can say that I now know that my dream move would never have happened without their help and caring.

We cannot thank you enough for making our challenging move to Mexico such a great success!

Our advice to anyone considering a move south of the border is simple. Call Best Mexico Movers right now and get Chuck and Hannia on your team.

Your advice throughout the planning and execution was invaluable. When we hit complications or road blocks you were always ready to help and you were always immediately available.

As a business owner myself I put a very high value on customer service. Best Mexico Movers’ service was unparalleled. I’m certain we gave you a few unusual wrinkles, especially during Covid, but you were always ready for whatever we threw at you.

 

After interviewing many other moving companies there was simply no comparison. It was clear that Best Mexico Movers cared about us and would go the extra mile to ensure our move would be the best possible.

I could go on and present all the ways in which you helped but that would take many pages. Simply, you guys were great.

Thank you.

George del Castillo, from Chandler, Arizona:

My wife was astute enough to find Best Mexico Movers to help us relocate to Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico.  She had checked with the larger, better known international movers but they were forbiddingly expensive.  With their rates we would not have had enough money left over to purchase our own home in Mexico, which was our plan.

She found Best Mexico Movers, which had good credentials and recommendations so we decided to contact them.  Chuck Bolotin was our initial contact and the only contact that we needed.  He was extremely helpful and thoughtful.  He met our needs and helped us to navigate the Mexican customs so that we could import our household goods through the Mexican-US border.

We used 3rd party for packers who showed up right on time and got their work done very efficiently, loading our goods onto one semi-trailer.  Chuck arranged for the trailer to be picked up 2 days later.  It cleared Mexican customs without even having the trailer opened.  Chuck and his customs broker worked with us to have all of the correct paperwork completed to meet compliance and based on good working relationships with the Mexican authorities our load was not tampered with by a border inspection. 

The trailer arrived safely and completely at our mini-storage in Chapala right on-time and was unloaded without any problems.

We are very pleased with the job that Chuck Bolotin and Best Mexico Movers provided for us.  We unreservedly recommend them to anyone else who wants to move from the US to Mexico.

Doctor from Colorado:

We moved from Colorado to Ajijic in October 2019. After multiple phone interviews and reference checks we selected Best Mexico Movers to move us to Mexico.

From the first phone call to Chuck Bolotin, the principal of the company, to adios in the driveway of our home in Ajijic, Mexico, we were advised, supported, and efficiently helped in all facets of our complex move.

Chuck was at our home to do the inventory and prepare the menaje de casa and supervised the final loading of the truck, even after we had departed for the flight to Ajijic.

At every point in the transit of our stuff he maintained contact with the customs broker, the drivers, and the unloaders. Even with an unanticipated glitch at border customs, he never lost the reins of the move. In every way that one could imagine he provided attention and execution of a rather comprehensive move.

At the day of unloading he arranged for a team of men to unload the truck nearby and for our belonging to be brought to the house pick-up truck by pick-up truck because the huge truck could not access our street.

Nothing was broken, nothing was lost. What more can I say? If you want to ask more questions of me I am sure that Chuck can arrange a personal conversation.

Linda Joy Stone, from Tucson, Arizona:

Selling our house in Tucson and most of our furniture, packing our belongings and moving to Mexico was certainly one of the most challenging and stressful endeavors my husband, Alex, and I have ever undertaken, and in our elder years yet! We moved to Ajijic 5/15/19. I don’t know how I discovered Chuck Bolotin of Best Mexico Movers, but what a ray of light he was in assisting our move. He was available by phone anytime we had a question and offered detailed information. He sent clear lists of how to inventory and pack our belongings with a clear timeline of what needed to be done and when. We had planned to pack a Penske truck and have it driven to Laredo, TX, where a Best Mexico Movers truck would move our belongings into their truck and head to our new rental home. Chuck was right there every step of the way.

 

An interesting turn of events was the night before we were to pack the truck and caravan in our car to Laredo, Alex was hospitalized with a kidney stone and needing an emergency procedure. This would set us back by two weeks, but the Penske truck got packed, with the help of friends. The truck arrived in Laredo at the appointed time to meet Chuck’s truck, went through Customs smoothly and, instead of our belongings being taken to our new home where we were to meet Chuck and his truck, he and our new property manager were able to redirect our belongings into a storage unit that we were luckily able to procure from Tucson. So, everything was waiting for us safely in storage when we finally made the journey to our new home and new life. Alex and I highly recommend with confidence Chuck Bolotin and Best Mexico Movers for an affordable, trouble-free move from the U.S. into Mexico. Muchas gracias!
