It is a flat rate. Stuff as much as you can in to those Balikbayan Box. Just make sure to protect or wrap up anything of importance. As these boxes are placed on ships and let's say they are not handle with kid gloves..

You should call Forex and get a true quote.

This is what is listed on-line when I searched Forex rates.

Manila: $65.00

Luzon 1: $70.00

Luzon 2: $73.00

Visayas: $80.00

Mindanao: $83.00

We use LBC throught the local sari sari store. the price is $89 for the jumbo box that my wife stuffs at least 250 lbs in. After shipping you can go on line to the LBC website, and track the progress of your shipment. We live in Georgia and our boxes always go out of Jacksonville Florida. It usually takes about 4 - 6 weeks to arrive in Manila.

What is the website for LBC, or where is the Sari sari store? I live in the Atlanta Metro area...

Thanks in advance!

We used Forex and it took 5.5 months to reach mindano. They had plenty of excuses, but still took that long. They initially told us it would be at the most 90 days.
