My biggest pleasant surprise, after depressing high moving quotes, was a local company called BEST MEXICO MOVERS, with owner Chuck Bolotin. He specializes in cross border moves between Mexico and the USA.

My realtor and friends had recommended two local moving companies.  One was very professional and friendly, the other didn’t reply in spite of my two office visits. Both quoted over 20,000 pesos for an already packed truck from Tucson to Chapala.

When I called Chuck, he was so personable and calmed me down in minutes. His quotes were done so clear and practical in a three-column spreadsheet where you could choose which scenario you liked best.

Another great experience was, he didn’t rush me to get the money together, which was less than half of the others. He simply emailed “whenever you are ready, we are here for you”. It took me several months and he kept the same price for me.

The execution was flawless. He corresponded with the ranch owner where I had my truck and arranged a seamless transition of transferring my goods into his truck and arrived functionally at my door in Chapala, to the hour! Inspired a hiccup on the border because I forgot to list my ancient VHS/TV. His team took care of that too.

Unloading was as stress-free and with no damages whatsoever. During those 5 days of transit Chuck and his team kept me posted in the nicest way.

I would say, the move was almost fun! So rare that a company takes all your headaches away and does what they say. I am so impressed.

Thank you again, Chuck and team;)

There is also a YouTube interview out there to put a face to his name.

I cannot say enough about Best Mexico Movers!

I am so grateful that I chose this moving company to bring my things from the US. These were items I had collected over 50 years including all my family photos, inherited treasures and prized possessions, including a set of seven crystal sound bowls and a life sized lamp. Adding to this was the fact that even though I had packed the storage unit, I would already be in Mexico when my things would be moved from my storage unit in the US. A dear friend stood in for me on the day of moving.

Chuck and his team were excellent from the start. They provided excellent instructions on how to pack so that my items would travel safely and intact and so that I would be compliant with custom requirements.

I met my team, Laura Aquilar and Andy Kneeter online and had direct phone numbers so that I could reach them at any moment that I had any questions or concerns.

Best Mexico Movers has an operational set up to assist you with every aspect of the move. All my boxes and items were secure and tracked every step of the way.

My Personal Moving Assistant Laura was my Point of Contact. She managed all aspects of the move from beginning to end. I never worried about my move.

Best Mexico Movers is very transparent, communicative and competent. Their level of professionalism was so reassuring, and I knew my things were in very good hands.

The move was smooth and uneventful.  I received my belongings 2 weeks after I signed my contract with Best Mexico Movers and everything arrived as I had packed it. I was ecstatic!

Thanks so much Chuck, Laura, Andy and everyone at Best Mexico Movers for helping me to fulfill my dreams in Puerto Morelos, Mexico!

We recently used the services of BEST MEXICO MOVERS to move our entire household goods to Mexico. This could’ve been far more stressful than it actually was.
Moving after being in a home for twenty years translates to many painful decisions that one has to make. I’m happy to report that the entire process went SMOOTHLY — exactly as Chuck Bolotin promised. His team was ON IT!  They kept us on schedule and helped with the myriad of documentation that the Mexican government requires.
Hannia, our project manager, was very sensitive to the stress we felt, and she insured our entire process was flawless. Andy was very helpful with the insurance, and I was impressed by his attention to detail with regards to the proper loading of the moving truck! Ariel was professional and organized the delivery of our goods to the storage facility in Playa del Carmen, tracking our inventory accurately! Lastly, I must express my appreciation for Chuck Bolotin for delivering on every level – his
organization performs with military precision. I recommend him and his team without reservation.
And he’s a funny, quirky guy as well!

My mom and I decided we wanted to make the challenging move out of the USA and into Ajijic Mexico. One of the big hurdles that you face is moving all of your possessions, art, and furniture. I always do a lot of research on YouTube, Google, etc. and one name came up quite often was Chuck Bolotin with Best Mexico Movers. Even some of the best of Ajijic’s real estate agents mentioned Chuck and his tightly knit team.

We gave Chuck a call from Ohio and let him know we had decided to become expats and join this wonderful community but needed help getting everything to our new home. From phone call number one we knew Best Mexico Movers was the only way to go. Chuck explained the entire process from the paperwork with visas, household belongings list, and packing instructions to the joys of everything that Mexico will not allow you to bring (yes, it’s quite a lot). He was able to get us prices for the transportation and unpacking here in Ajijic to our new home very quickly.


After we gave him our dates his team jumped right in with a wonderful to do list and schedules of everything that has to be done like getting packers, loaders, etc. Chuck and his team were really available anytime during this very stressful process of moving your life. But one thing that went smooth with our entire move was Chuck and his team. We had some hiccups from a poor hire I did from Hire a Helper but Chuck was able to rectify their mistakes.

Because of Chucks’ familiarity with the processes of Mexican customs clearance  we actually had ZERO customs issues. I did have some potential issue items that he talked to his customs brokers about and they had hands on immediately. We arrived in Ajijic, and our stuff arrived a lot faster than we expected. I think it was about seven days, maybe. He had his people here at our new home on the ground and ready with lots of moving help that counted out box by box from the household list to make sure everything made it from point USA to Mexico.

Due to our terrible loaders, I think we had one vase break and a few scratches on basic stuff. I’m not sure how anyone can move you a distance like this with more love and care. This whole life changing stressful transition was made so much smoother and with so much less stress by hiring an expert to help with the navigations of an international move. Even after everything was done Chuck and his team made multiple follow ups and really helped welcome mom and I to Mexico.

 Thank you, Best Mexico Movers for living up to your wonderful reputation and helping us find Home again.

Working with BEST MEXICO MOVERS (BMM) was a very positive experience.
We moved from Queretaro back to Boise, Idaho and know without a doubt we couldn’t have done it without Chuck Bolotin and his team! They took care of all the paperwork, and legal requirements, (which are many leaving MX and entering back into the US) and took great care to insure our material things arrived safely.
BMM were communicative, prompt, answered our many questions and were patient with us. We felt like we, along with our belongings mattered.
We had reached out to several international movers before making a decision and from all aspects, BMM won, hands down…even financially! At the very least, contact them before you throw your money to people who don’t give a rip about you or your belongings. They are good people who know the ins and outs of international moving between the US and Mexico.
Highly recommended!
Thanks, Chuck, again for playing such a big role in getting us home! Please extend our thanks to Laura and your team as well.

From our very first conversation with Chuck and Best Mexico Movers, we knew we had found the right partner to help us start our new life in Puerto Vallarta.  We purposely use the word partner, because throughout the whole process this is exactly how Chuck and his team approached the biggest logistical hurdle in leaving the US for Mexico – the dreaded international move.

There are many steps in an international move, and BMM made sure to collaborate with us closely to take all of the uncertainty, confusion, and potential stress out of a process that for most people, including ourselves, was very unfamiliar and overwhelming.  To be sure we did our due diligence, we evaluated several other international movers, and discovered all of the promises in the BMM pitch to immediately ring true – more clarity, less confusion, more streamlined, and still the most cost-effective solution, by a significant margin.  To top that all off, it also felt the most personal, with a team dedicated to making sure all our concerns were heard and who were there to help us every step of the way with clear, concise, easy-to-understand instructions.

Laura was wonderful to work with throughout the process and helped us adhere to our timeline. Once our items arrived in Mexico, John was there to manage the day and knew exactly what needed to happen. It was amazing to have this kind of support!

If you can get the best service for the best price, that’s a deal you can’t pass up. You can truly feel the care that Chuck has for looking after his clients because he’s been in the exact same situation before and knows exactly what needs to happen.  We cannot say enough positive things about the way BMM handled our move. We have already recommended them to several others and will continue to do so, so that others can know they have the right partner to start them off on the right foot in their new lives in beautiful Mexico.

Muchisimas gracias to Best Mexico Movers and our whole team – you really are the best!

Well, we finally slowed down on packing enough that I could take a breath.

First I would like to thank you for the wonderful gift… such a blessing at the end of the move ❤️.

Danielle was great.  She was extremely quick to respond, something I really appreciated. If I asked a question she didn’t know, she would actually say “I don’t know” and get the answer and get right back to me.   Soooo often in business people are afraid to say they don’t know everything. Chuck I think you have a good one with her. If this was her first… she will be a gem.

Huge “Thank You” to you and your staff. You have done a great job of preparing all of the groundwork to avoid obstacles in a major move. You asked all of the needed questions and provided countless answers to our questions.

Thank You. Thank You Thank You!!!!!!  God Bless you and your staff!!

Peggy Walker, from Cibolo, Texas

From the moment I contacted Chuck and Best Mexico Movers I knew my move to Mexico was in good hands.

Specific information on exactly how the move would take place was provided at every step along the way. Communication was quickly attended to from beginning to end, including Chuck and his team on both sides of the border checking in after my belongings were delivered.

My main concern was family art pieces that could never be replaced. Every thing that I packed arrived safely and in a timely manner.

I have already referred Chuck and his great team to two others looking to make the move. I can highly recommend.


Jennifer Crump, from Berwyn, Illinois

I’d like to pass on a good review for those who plan to move their belongings from the USA to Mexico. I know this is a very personal decision- some choose to just take a couple of suitcases, and others wish to bring more than that.
If you fall in that second category, I highly recommend talking with Best Mexico Movers.
I had the luxury of time to plan and pare down my belongings and work with Chuck and his team to get this scheduled and successfully moved down last week. The communication was fantastic and my representative was quick to reply to any questions I had.  Overall, it was all I could have hoped for.
Moving is never fun.  It’s stressful and can be very hard work. They all made this work well, and that’s all I could ask for!
Many thanks to Chuck Bolotin and crew for a successful move!
