    Default Good Shipping Agent

    I would recommend a really good shipping agent in Managua. She is a friend of the family, completely honest, and is bi-lingual. Her contact information is:

    Ports International
    Sonia Vigil
    (505) 251-0936
    US Number (954) 719-0983

    Default Shipping to the corn islands

    Tom,
    How have you shipped items out to the little island? Did you go Manuaga, Rama, Bluefields? or were you able to ship directly from the states to Bluefield?

    Default We

    just shipped about 700 pounds of school supplies to Big Corn and it went from Miami to Bluefields to Big Corn. My friend in Miami handled it so I do not know who the carrier was. However, there are carriers that do this and I will get them for you and post it.

    OK then...I contacted Sonia and she suggested Bernuth Lines out of Miami.

    Give Sonia a all. If you can get them to Miami, she may be able to help you. She live in Jinotepe.

    HHBob, I just spoke with the shipping agent here in Port. his advise is to make a reciept to the director or who is responsable for the school as a donation and include make model and serial numbers of the unit.

    When they arrive the person can then recieve them out of Aduana (Customs)

    There should be NO Monkeying around of this....being a donated educational aid.

    Agencia Aduenera (AGMSR)
    Cell 663 0694 Puerto Cabezas...

    Se Habla English (had to add this)......LOL
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...

    Default JPJW is

    correct....we made sure that everything was made known to the persons responsible for the school and that the stuff was donations for the school. It went smoothly and the kids now have the stuff.
