hello and happy 09 VJ people...

ive read threads here that ask about shipping from US to the PI.

what about the other way around? has anyone ever tried shipping from PI to US?

how much did you pay?

and for how long did you wait?

do you know of any reliable companies?

DHL? 2go? LBC? or even fedex?

my bf's mom sends me boxes and pays around $80/box with no weight limit. just no oversized boxes.

and takes 3-4 months for the boxes from their doorstep to mine.

so i was wondering... what about shipping from the PI to the US?

if you have any ideas, please do share. your replies will be highly appreciated. thank you.

ouch! very expensive. thats like another laptop.

he should have just sent the money and have you buy it here. no need to pay for mailing.

my concern is from PI to US.

i want to box in some of my personal belongings and ship it over to the US.

hi.. i was thinking.. if shipping from PI to US would cost that much (which is really too much), would bringing the boxes with u to plane and just paying the extra luggage cost less? Does anyone here know how much excess baggages cost?

i was thinking of the same thing too. i just wanna know in advance what my options are.

i dont learn of my airline yet until i get on my interview next week. and the CFO.

after which, i can ask around regarding the payment for airline excess.
