FIVE (5) Reasons Why You Should Never Ship A Food Barrel To Jamaica Again!
Several shipping companies allow you to shop online and they will ship your items to Jamaica, clear them with Customs and deliver them to your doorstep in Jamaica.

• There are direct cost with shipping a barrel, like buying the jumbo barrel for US$35, shipping it for US$80, that is if you’re shipping it from NY. It is US$110 if you are shipping from California. When you go to get the barrel in Jamaica, your shipper will request for US$30 more for handling on top of the US$110 shipping charge, wharf wants US$20 for storage and the government wants US$100.
Let’s go over that:
US$35 – Barrel
US$110 – Shipping
US$30 – Handling
US$20 – Storage
US$100 – Duty
Without leaving out the US$50 transportation cost to bring the barrel home.
US$335.00 Direct Cost
Let’s look at the indirect costs
Did you buy an airline to go shop?
Did you take vacation to go foreign to shop?
Do you diver gas and eat lunch going from store to store shopping?
Do you get annoyed and fatigued while doing the everlasting packing?
Are you paying for accommodations in foreign or take Uber or taxi to the airport? If you did not pay your host did so it is a cost.
What amounts the dreaded day at the wharf in Jamaica? I wonder who will pay you back for the day’s wages?
1. Did you just go over budget buying things you don’t 100% need because you have to fill this 14 cubic feet barrel for it to have been worth your effort and time?
2. Woeful waste makes woeful wants. Do you see the amount of good things that fits inside a jumbo barrel? Oh my word, it is Christmas when the barrel is finally opened. The problem is that it can be too much items with short shelf life which has to be used quickly. Kids also become very giving to friends when a barrel opens or us at least.
3. There is a better way you can enjoy the benefits of a food barrel incrementally and buy what you need and get the same bargain and benefits.
