  1. I'm here in the US for 6 months now but I still dont have any idea for the best boxes and courier to use here in my area. I haven't meet filipino since around here. Bdw I'm here in Asheboro, North Carolina. Hoping someone close enough to my location can recommend one. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi all, Fiance and I have been cohabitating in Canada for several years (I was living in Canada for much longer), but I just moved back to the US early to start a new job while fiance awaits visa issuance. I (USC) was planning on returning to Canada to help with the official move-out, as well as drive our stuff across the border into the States myself to load a Uhaul container, thereby avoiding Uhaul's international shipping rates. (The quote doubled for a Canadian address, even though it's just 45 minutes away!) Fiance will of course not participate as we do not intend to activate his K1 visa at that time. My understanding is that as a US Citizen returning to the US after living abroad, I can bring in my household goods duty free. I want to make sure it's okay that I essentially drop it off across the border for shipment, then return to Canada to fly back to the US the next day. Any reason why this could be problematic? Anything I should be aware of? Is my plan sound??
  3. I have 3 bass guitars that I want to California, any idea how I should go about doing this? I only have one hard case and one soft one, but no case for my accoustic bass. From your experience how roughly are the belongings handled and tossed around in transit? Most companies I've looked at have specific box sizes and basses are far too long to fit in even the largest of them. Any company recomendations? In addition to the basses I will have a couple of boxes of personal belongings like art supplies, photos and frames, stuffed toys, books, dvds, cds and vinyl, as well as a large 3 square foot artwork which is very delicate, and a 22x18" painting by my late grandfather. I'm not planning to ship any furniture or any brand new electronics (with the exception of my personal laptop which will be in my hand lugage). Any idea if I would have to pay customs on any of this stuff?
  4. Hello everyone! Hoping everyone is doing well, question... Some people from a group we have of our country are wondering why, even if they had their NVC number some days before last Tuesday October 1st,(embassy shipment day), still have "At NVC" status and haven't received NVC email. Is this normal? Thanks in advance!
  5. My wife (AUS) just got her visa approved this month, and we're moving from Australia to the US in May. We're planning to go to Dallas to set up, and we want to ship our belongings, but finding out general costs to just ship things isn't working very well without a well defined manifest. We're looking to send general household goods, and we might send some flat pack furniture (only about 1500 new) but we'd like to just pack some stuff up in like a 2x2x1 meter crate if we're going to do that. Has anyone done anything similar, or should we just sell off furniture for whatever we can get for it and buy new in the US and send our smaller goods by smaller package sea chests? Any companies people have had good experiences with? Thanks!
  6. Hi my Fiance is about to send me his Affidavit of Support. Is it safe to send through USPS? Fedex and UPS is kinda pricey. It will cost him $100 plus just to send the docs. Is it that expensive too?
  7. Hello there, I am moving to US and need to send my belongings there. what is the best way and also cheapest way to send the everything to US from Canada? I appreciate if you share your experience. Thanks
  8. I'm beginning to research how to get my stuff from Sydney to the US. Any Australians here who can recommend a good shipping company? We likely won't be shipping any furniture, mostly clothes/personal belongings in large suitcases or boxes. Thanks!
