When we moved to Uruguay, we brought our worldly possessions. This is what a container manifest looks like. Not very complicated nor does it need to be highly detailed. It can NOT contain any banned or illegal items as it pertains to the maritime shipping act, the carrier’s own requirements or the government of Uruguay. For instance, you dont want to list liquor or motorycycles. Of course, you can bring things you cant bring in duty free, like a motorcycle or a car, but then you pay the duties and taxes, or spend the rest of your life here, hiding them from the police.
It works in Spanish and/or English. We did ours in Spanglish.
