Personal goods

From a birthday gift to shipping your entire household effects.

Personal goods

Are you moving to Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao or St. Maarten or one of our other destinations? Even then, IFC is the expert for you! Our private services range from shipping the birthday gift for your grandson to Aruba, to the complete relocation of your household effects in your own container.

Our services for transporting your property to our destinations may include:

  • Full relocation service: a FAIM / ISO certified relocation team will pack and pack everything at your home. You remain seated until the movers load the couch.
  • Self-efficacy: you pack your goods yourself and disassemble your furniture. This way you can save considerably on costs.
  • Collecting your household effects, loading the goods into the container.
    Advice on insurance, import duties, VAT and other points of interest.

And all combinations in between.

Below we inform you in advance about general points of interest that will come into consideration when you move. And of course you can contact us for further specific information.

Relocation service

If you choose to use a full removal service, we will start by having a carefully selected mover come to you. This professional adviser will make a recording of your household effects and inform you about the further course of events. You will receive a quote from us based on the volume recorded by our consultant. If you agree with that quotation, we can make a further plan: the removal team is classified, the container is booked and placed on location on the agreed day and shipped at the agreed time. At destination, the relocation is received, cleared and further processed by our local agent. If desired, they can deliver your household effects to your house, unpack, remove materials and reassemble your furniture. With a relocation service you will be completely relieved.


If you choose to pack your goods yourself and disassemble your furniture, etc., you can save considerably on costs. Even then, IFC remains the expert and reliable partner for you, who will ship your household effects to, for example, Aruba, Bonaire or Curaçao. Based on the volume, we discuss the cheapest and most practical options for you. This may mean that you deliver your goods packaged to us yourself, or that we come to collect them as soon as you have packed them ready.

We will help you on your way with our handy packing tips. When packing, you will have to keep a packing list. We will continue to use these for the customs work that we must perform.

Reclaim VAT

If you ship newly purchased goods to Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, St. Maarten or Suriname, you ship to areas outside the EU (despite the BES status of Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius). Therefore you do not have to pay VAT. In this document you can read how you can reclaim your VAT paid from the tax authorities.
