    Good\bad experiences with movers

    Unfortunately that makes the forums next to worthless for vetting a potential moving company. It is not like having a bad meal at a restaurant. I have to trust movers with things it has taken a lifetime to collect and which an insurance check cannot replace. If I cant know I am getting the full story I cant trust what I read here. I see a lot of people saying good things about charlie zeller, but in the context of knowing no one is allowed to say anything bad that means nothing. So what 4 people have good things to say? Maybe 20 people had bad experiences but were silenced.

    Paul, can you quote the law regarding this? User Iduna did research on this topic and concluded it is not against costa rica law in the thread titled "best way to ship computer" she said this " I decided to take examine the whole "it is illegal to say/write anything negative about a business, person, etc. thing" that I have heard so many times. On the surface it appears that this cannot be correct since many people make public complaints about businesses, government agencies, individual professionals, etc. in many different forums, including the Letters section of La Nación. I looked up the section on "Delitos contra el honor" in the código penal. This is readily available online. It seems pretty clear that it is perfectly permissible to publicly complain about an experience with a business or a person in a professional capacity as long as you do not directly impune the business's or person's character, honesty, accuse them of a crime, etc. So, in other words, it is perfectly fine to write or say something like, "Sky TV charges way to much money for a crappy picture and they never respond to complaints". Or "Restaurant Such an Such serves steak that is as tough as a shoe and the service is slow." Or "Doctor Jones was very rude when I went in for my exam and charged me more than he said he would." It is NOT OK to say or write something like "Cielo TV is run by a bunch of crooks that are stealing money from all of their customers". Or "Restaurant Such and Such serves expired meat that can kill you". Or "Doctor Jones is pervert and didn't even finish medical school". Here is a quote from one section of the law that addresses this: Exclusión de delito ARTÍCULO 151.- No son punibles como ofensas al honor los juicios desfavorables de la crítica literaria, artística, histórica, científica o profesional; el concepto desfavorable expresado en cumplimiento de un deber o ejerciendo un derecho siempre que el modo de preceder (sic) o la falta de reserva cuando debió haberla, no demuestren un propósito ofensivo. "

    Aduanas regulations

    Thanks for the info and opinions. I think this link has what I'm looking for. http://www.hacienda.go.cr/contenido/13996-servicios-y-tramites
  7. Does anyone know where to get a copy of current aduanas regulations? I want to bring my stuff to costa rica and would like the regs on hand to know what requires special permits and to "chapter and verse" any aduanas official that tries to tell me I don't have the right paperwork when I do. I thought a trip to aduanas office in zapote would do it but the guy behind the counter was no help at all.

  9. Glad to hear it. Thanks for the quick reply.
  10. Hi, I have a BCR account and need to take out cash for buying a truck. Is there any problem with making a large cash withdrawal?
  11. I know residents in CR get the first 500 dollars of imported goods tax free, but I can't find any shipping company that will do the required paperwork, so I am stuck paying taxes I shouldn't have to. I estimate this costs me around $200 per year. Does anyone know of a shipping company that does this?
