The shipping and duty came to 3 times what we paid for the car. Next car we bought in Aruba.

    There is a list of insurance companies with their websites in this thread

    Home Insurance ???

    For anyone moving to Aruba...the information in the thread below regarding Aruba Customs, duties, shipping and importing vs. purchasing in Aruba is well worthwhile
    Import Duties

    Also information on car taxes which will be different from duties
