Hi: From others we have learned of the following suppliers in Aruba. Megamall (Cash and Carry), The Jungle, Teak House, Texas furniture, Home and Nature, Hoogmeyer. We will know more after we come there at the end of January.
If you order them online in the US you can ship them to an address in FL. Call this guy, Pablito Flemming at 297 593 5442 he offers service of shipping from an address in FL. Shipment leaves FL on Fridays and get in here by Tuesday, clears custom, offload containers, by Friday latest you'll have your goods in Aruba.
By the way, this is not just some guy shipping stuff, it is a legitimate company I just have had such a good working relationship with him for years, that I don't even remember the name of the business. You can call him to see if the prices would benefit you.
We are also interested in costs of furniture, appliances etc. for our house in Aruba.
Do you, or anyone else reading this have any comparasion at all between pricing in US and Aruba. Does it make sense to purchase in US even with the additional shipping costs. What about warranties etc.
I would really like to hear from someone who has done a comparasion or has shipped into Aruba. I would be most interested in the issues around duty etc. If one is taking in original artworks are they also subject to duty What about personal effects?
Are prices in Aruba much higher?
Thanks anyone who can shed some light on this topic. I believe there are a lot of us wondering about these issues based on what I have seen on various boards, so if someone can assist this will help a lot of folks.
