Good day to everyone!!!

Me and my fiancee is looking at the courier where to ship things here in the Phil... I was just wondering if any of you experience sending big stuff here without any hassle that we have to pay big amount for customs fee... I have read here before a post like the courier thing but i cant find it now... We wanted to ship big things and we want to use not so expensive courier... I have heard of the balikbayan box thing, but we don't know the courier for that... I'm afraid if we send it through post office, it'll not reach here... Even some of my cards were stolen by the post office,so we don't have that trust sending them...

Thank you in advance for the replies... Its a big help for us... God bless :whistle:


You're Gods' wonderful blessing... I'm so happy to be with my baby, dog eddie, mom and dog molly...

Extremely happy with my married life, but we're praying for a baby this 2010, so help us GOD....

I used Manila Forwarders it cost $75 per box, they were big and heavy boxes, I sent my computer and household goods, my bicycle, it took about a month but it was cheap and reliable, door to door service. I think it may cost a little more to the provinces but still very cheap.

just google the name...Manila Forwarders, they have a 1 800 number, they will bring you boxes and come pick them up, they are a great service.

Peace,

Matthew

Johnny Air has a good reputation. But I don't remember the cost. They do shipping by boat and air.

Check your area if there's an LBC Worldwide (Mundial). It would cost you $65 for the biggest box.


Hokey Smoke!

I have used Johnny air cargo for stuff that has to be there fast and Johnny ocean cargo for large boxes (its the same company). Then have offices in the states and the philippines and I have never had an issue with missing or broken items. Ocean takes 30 to 45 days and runs about $65.00 for a big box. Air can take from 3 to 10 days (depending on how much you want to pay) and a 10 pound box taking 3 to 5 days is about $49.00. If you ship electronics or phones prepare to pay a little more but your fiance will not have to pay those crazy postal fees and suffer through the post office opening their box. If you are in California like me you have a choice of several offices. Look them up on line, or contact me for the web site or phone number. :thumbs:
