  1. I cross the border frequently. I am asked all the time about currency. I have been stopped by CBP going south, asked about money (last month Eagle Pass) and had them count my money. There are 2 sets of laws in play. You must declare to Mexico and you must declare to the USA. Mexico has confiscated money at airports, Cancun, for not reporting. Why take the chance? It takes 5 minutes to comply. BTW, if you are traveling as a "couple" once you hit $10,000 you must report it. It is not $10,000 each person
  2. Maybe I can assist you? I have done this many times. Do you want it driven or towed? Email me at toyhauler4u@gmail.com for info and references.
  3. Coopers are good tires and made locally in El Salto. Michelin are better. Check the date of manufacture to make sure they are fresh.
  4. Maybe I can assist. I have a truck and trailer. You load, I drive, you unload. Long haul only. Send me a pm if interested
  5. I use Here WeGo maps. You can download and keep the entire MX map. No need for internet to use maps.
  6. I would speak with Pat's Plates. He has worked with folk legalizing under the "Chocolate" program. https://www.facebook.com/patsplatespv/ I would stay away from the UCD program. You are asking for trouble if you are not in a rural area. It is for farmers not retired expats.

  8. Maybe I can help. I have a truck and cargo trailer and offer assisted do it yourself style moving . email me at toyhauler4u@gmail.com for more info (I will not answer questions here)
  9. Be careful in regards to Orizaba. 9 month out of the year it is in the "smoke and ash" zone.
  10. Just finished a trip today from Lakeside to Nogales. I am driving a SRW pickup truck and pulling a 2 axle trailer. Took 15D autopista. Tolls were 6098p (including 2 tope tolls in Vicam.)
  11. Maybe I can assist you. I do this all the time, door to door. I have lots of references. If you want more info email me toyhauler4u (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send my pamphlet
  12. Here is an idea I have never seen on Youtube. Interviewing Mexicans who live in the expat community. Waiters, maids, drivers, gardeners, Mexican business owners. They probably have varies ideas, opinions about living with US and Canadian immigrants. Just show the truth and don't go into it with a slant. I would watch that.
  13. I have a near new Black & Decker electric mower I will sell you, 2000p
  14. How much do you want to change? At what rate do you want?
  15. There are some major restrictions when importing a bird into a country. Sometimes that includes a quarantine. Don't get caught by a surprise at the border. Safe travels
  16. Manuel Castillo can help you. PM me for his number.
  17. I came north through Eagle Pass 3 days ago. There were 50+ cars in line to cancel a TIP at Allende. 2 hours in line to cross north on a Monday afternoon. Reason??? People are avoiding N Laredo/Colombia crossings. Give yourself extra time. Ciudad Acuna/Del Rio might be a better choice.
  18. I just went through this. I purchased an out of state truck and went to the States with it. No issues as I am the owner. Just don't lie to the CBP officer. I also used Spencer's (Luis) office to assist with getting Jalisco plates. It took over a month from getting the appointment to actually going to Tonala for inspections. Just be patient, Luis will get it done CORRECTLY
  19. There is a government questionnaire you must fill out before you get on a plane. It asks if you have been in contact with anyone having covid. You have!!!!!! You will not be allowed to fly, unless you LIE.
  20. As of July 1st, 2020, the tax is 19% at land crossings after the personal deduction.
