For customers planning on moving to Chile, Abels Moving Services have been provided with updated information from our agents in connection with a 48 hour Labour and Office Strike. The strike began on the 13th November 2013.

Government employees of Chile have announced a 48 hour labour and office strike beginning Wednesday, Nov. 13. Custom officers and others in government institutions will be unavailable at this time as back office functions, national social services, government health offices and agencies will be closed.

Import and export shipping services will suffer loading, inspection, and vessel servicing delays. These delays will result in increasing operation costs due to storage and penalties.
