many people that I know use Amazon.com or ebay....have the packages sent to a shipping company in the US and then they come down via container and some companies here deliver countrywide. Many use Reynolds Shipping in Los Angeles and when it arrives in Belize the corresponding company is Marage Shipping.

We have ordered stuff from Amazon, and had it sent to Belize Concierge in Los Angeles in the US. They seem to have a ship coming to Belize about once a month, and they deliver your goodies to your home.

Belize Concierge deal with all clearing and duty. Their charge includes shipping and duty. They will give a quote if you know the weight/volume/cost of your item(s). For larger items (eg a dishwasher) it can be cheaper to do this than buy overpriced items, with limited choices, here.

For big stuff there are a number of companies that will take delivery in the US and ship directly to you in Belize, taking care of everything. I have successfully used http://www.20cadenashipping.com/
http://www.bluefieldfreight.com/
and Cayo Cargo.

For small stuff find a supplier that will ship to Belize directly using a regular mail carrier like USPS. This is affordable and the item will come to your local Post Office where you will pay GST and duty (probably a nominal amount) when you pick it up.

From Europe things take 2 to 4 weeks. From the US 4 to 6 weeks. From China 3 to 6 months.

If you are in a hurry you can spend an arm and a leg on couriers like UPS or DHL. These will get stuff to Belize in a few days but they will leave it in Ladyville. You have to go to Belize City to pay the customs (at full rate) then get your stuff from Ladyville. You may be better off going to Chetumal or Melchor if you can get what you need there.
