Since you are presumably coming from Netherlands you will have no problem with the electrical system here. One word of caution - fridge and freezer designed for use in Europe will not necessarily be good enough here with temperature above 30 most of the time. Unless you know they are well rated, it's safer to buy a new one here.

Actually shipping from Curacao is not too bad but they do not treat the goods as well as you would. The companies who do ship stuff to Bonaire generally do pack it pretty good and also most do not charge the 5% OB and at times you can bargain with them to include the freight!

thanks, great suggestions. I will buy the fridge locally.

Depending on the size of the container you are allowed to use, I would bring "everything" you have in your home. Are you allowed to bring a car too?

You are (unless rgulations have changed again recently) allowed to bring a car provided it has been in your posession for at least 6 months before shipping (check it's not 1 year). If thinking of doing that though, make sure iut's a car you can get service and spares for here. Don't bring a Citroen or Peugeot of anything with a sophisticated engine management system as you probably won't find anyone with the necessary diagnostic equipment.
