  1. We're moving locally next week. Seeking recommendations for truck w/ 2 persons.to handle very little furniture, but lots of boxes. Depending on size of the truck, it might be doable in half a day. Please share info about good experience you have had with such local folks who can do this move for us. Thank you. Alex
  2. I am moving from Morelia to Cuernavaca, about a year ago I sued an insurance company, in Morelia, the matter has not settled yet. The lawyer here in Morelia tells me that I can not transfer the litigation to Cuernavaca, but I have to continue it in Morelia is he correct? Thank you

  4. Our retirement to Ajijic is rapidly approaching. I am at the point of deciding on a couple of things. Our books, clothing, "stuff" has been sorted. The Mexico pile is much smaller than the sell/Goodwill/freecycle pile. Now I need some advice from folks who have moved with minimal stuff into furnished rentals. Beds - Both of us have back problems that require a really good mattress. Currently using a temperpedic and getting first pain-free sleep in years. I have a couple of options - the Nectar mattress comes in a big bag and unrolls. That will pack easily and someone we know owns one. Because Mexican mattresses are not the same size as US, mattress will probably not fit whatever foundation. Is it reasonable to ask the landlord to store one of the beds so we can use ours? Other option is to buy a mattress here. Recommendations for a place? Sheets - Do rentals come with bed linens or do we need to buy our own. Same for towels.
  5. Hi my husband retired after 30 years as a teamster yesterday, Thursday. He is 50 and I am 44. I am a teacher and hope to continue to work/volunteer in some capacity with children. We have discussed Chapala and Ajjijic as our long term retirement destination. We will be booking our flight and be there for a two week visit Monday the fourth. Please tell us anything that would be helpful as new members of the community. Especially what we should definitely experience over the next two weeks, food recommendations, and anything else that would be helpful. Thank you.
  6. Hi there, This is my first post to the board everyone so apologies if I mess something up. I did do a fairly lengthy search looking for advice on this specific case, which I would have thought would be kind of common but maybe not? I currently live in GDL and have a RT visa via my employer. My mom plans to come down and live with me initially on a tourist visa while we work out how she can get a permanente. My circumstances are this: My mom is basically getting rid of all of her household goods except for some papers, linens, dishes, and CDs/DVDs, DVD player and a TV and printer. That's literally the whole list. She will be driving down from Seattle. Oh, one other pertinent piece of info, she'll be bringing a cat. We've gone through getting his papers before, I think that part is pretty straightforward. My questions are: 1. Where would you advise she cross the border? Some folks from the lake have said that crossing at Nogales or Laredo is best, rather than straight down through California. 2. She would like to travel "light" - she wants to ship as much of that list as she can. I did see there's Strom-White, but she's not going to lakeside nor is she coming from Laredo. She was hoping to do something like FedEx or DHL. Is this feasible? What are the gotchas I should be looking for? Trying to navigate FedEx's international shipping site is... trying. Your guys' help would be invaluable - I've been directed here several times, finally taking up that advice! Regards, Ronan
  7. I'm new to this forum so if I am not posting in the right spot, I apologize. My husband and I are moving to Chapala in October 2016. We had an offer of a ride from a woman but she cannot confirm her availability until August so just in case that doesn't work out, I am looking at alternatives. It will be my husband and I and 2 small dogs along with about 6 small footlockers with our stuff in them. I'm pretty sure it would all fit in an SUV type vehicle. Has anyone ever done this before and if so, what were your experiences and do you know of anyone who does this. I really, really appreciate your help. Flying is not an option as our dogs are elderly and we do not want to stress them out. We can meet anywhere in Texas to meet up.
  8. HI, I'm here in Arizona, moving down to Ajijic in October and don't have enough room for all the boxes I've prepared to bring down, even with a trailer behind my car. It's too small an amount for a moving company, and too much for a small trailer, so I'm wondering if there is anyone driving down (through Arizona) with a truck or RV that might have room for extra boxes? I would pay gas, tolls, and any extra costs it involves. Thank you. Caitlin, Sedona, AZ
