There is a freight company called Arnian Freight Logistics that is based in San Diego, California and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Their website is www.arnian.com They have a truck that leaves San Diego on Fridays and makes deliveries in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesdays. During high season, they have an additional truck that leaves San Diego on Wednesdays and makes deliveries on Friday or Saturdays.
If you live in Cabo, you are aware that most items can be double or even tripled the cost that they are sold for in the United States due to taxes and import fees. Also, as of January 1, 2014 taxes in Mexico have increased from 11% to 16% which is making imported goods even more expensive than they already were. Furniture and electronics are some of the most expensive items in Cabo San Lucas. If you are an online shopper like myself, you can have items shipped to Cabo San Lucas for less than what you will be charged if you were to purchase them in Mexico. It's pretty simple! Most online retailers will ship your items for free within the United States if you spend a certain amount. Also, if you use websites like www.amazon.com you will not be charged tax.
To ship items with Arnian Freight Logistics you need to contact them directly at (619)710-4810. You will need to set up an account. They will ask for basic information such as your name, address, address items are to be delivered and telephone number. When placing your online order, have all items shipped directly to Arnian's warehouse at:
Arnian Freight Logistics
C/O YOUR NAME
2285 Michael Faraday Drive, Suite 14
San Diego, California 92154
After you have placed your online order, you will need to send them the order summary. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com The summary needs to show the goods purchased and the total value of goods. They will then contact you to give you the estimate for shipping your items. They usually charge 30% of the total value. For example, if you order a lamp that is $100.00, you will be charged $30.00 to have it delivered from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. They are importing your goods into Mexico and paying the 16% tax for that item. You will then need to mail them a check or money order. They do accept payment over the phone. You can write the check to "Arnian Freight Logistics".
If you are wanting to have your car in Mexico and the thought of driving down the Baja is not your idea of fun, Arnian Freight Logistics can get it there for you. Contact Arnian for specific pricing. The car can not be filled with items. You also will need to give Arnian Freight Logistics all documents for the vehicle before it is transported. You will also need to have the vehicle insured with Mexican Insurance even if it has US plates!
Are you looking to purchase furniture and can't seem to find what you need at Costco? That seems to be where everyone shops and the supply is limited! I suggest selecting a furniture store that is located in San Diego. For example, Lay Z Boy Furniture. If you have a store locally, you can go into your local store and select furniture and fabric. They also have a lot of items on their website at http://www.la-z-boy.com/ Get all the information on styles and colors and then contact the store located in San Diego and place the order over the phone. Have all items delivered to Arnian Freight Logistics warehouse in San Diego. This will save you money compared to the furniture costs in Mexico.
If you are willing to do a little research and don't need the item today, I suggest shipping items.
If you are in Cabo San Lucas and need to contact Arnian, their number is (624)105-1114. They are located at 215 Camino de Cerro L-16, Fracc. El Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas, MX.
