Relocation Services of Ecuador

Welcome to Ecuador, the “Land of Eternal Spring”. RSE trusts you’ll find Ecuador a multifaceted country of real freedoms. If you have decided, or are deciding, to make Ecuador your home, the team at RSE would like to help you.

There are many questions Americans have when moving to Ecuador. One of those is; “How do I get my household goods to Ecuador, and what can I bring?” The team at RSE will help answer these questions.

You may hear horror stories about some Expat’s experiences in trying to ship their personal items to Ecuador; stories like getting their items stuck in customs in Guayaquil for months, having to pay $60 a day storage fees and ending up with the storage fees being more than the original shipping costs, as well as putting up container deposits of $700 to $2000 and not having it returned, being told it would cost $9,000, to end up being charged $14,000 to $16,000.

RSE will work to eliminate the worries and nightmares of getting your sentimental and cherished property to Ecuador.

RSE has professionals in Guayaquil to insure that your container passes through that port safely. For an additional fee, it may be opened and inspected in Cuenca, at a private customs company, who has your best interest in mind.

RSE specializes in the Manta, Cuenca, Loja and Quito areas of Ecuador. Why worry about the Port of Guayaquil customs, when we can supervise the customs process, even when you are not present and then bring your cherished items directly to your home.


There are no hidden costs. You are provided an estimate sheet, contract and outline which will lay out our services, point by point. The whole process from the time your container is picked up in the USA, until it reaches your home in Ecuador, should be approximately 31 days.

Our goal at Relocation Services of Ecuador is to make this process as painless as possible. Some of the Ecuadorian process varies from what we are used to.
