Shipping your things to the Philippines, moving within the Philippines


We moved to the Philippines from Upstate New York. We packed all our things in big cardboard shipping boxes (balikbayan boxes) and smaller file storage boxes, both .

We get our bottled water from Dulonan, shop at the Villa public market and I frequently hop a jeepney from Molo to Villa plaza for my morning walks. I have traveled there for years and I am moving there. We have no medical insurance except for PhilHealth. If Dumaguete is too big for you, take a look at Miagao. Even major surgery can be affordable here.

Online Shoppers Welcome! is tracked by us since August, Over the time it has been ranked as high as 3 in the world, while most of its traffic comes from USA, where it reached as high as position.

I want American standard stuff so I would like to have my furniture and stuff but then one starts figuring if its worth it versus the cost. Your container is definitely subject to inspection and customs duties and hassles. The inspection could be just opening and peeking in or something more thorough. If you can take advantage of a customs exemption such as with the SRRV retirement visa, shipping your stuff can be a good alternative to selling all your stuff in the USA and buying all new in the Philippines.

Would like to share our experienced in shipping household stuffs from united states to Philippines. I been reading this thread for awhile,wants to get an idea of building a house in Philippines,we are still debating in our minds what to do to hire an engineer to do all the job..

I have decided not to bring a complete container from New Jersey to Iloilo. Rather I am entertaining going palletized. I want to bring about 35 boxes. I will arrive on a tourist visa and do plan on marrying my fiancee as soon as possible. I am sure customs has dealt with this scenario in the past. What are my problems I can expect? Is this even legal? I would not innovate. For 35 boxes, ship via balikbayan box through Forex or Manila Forwarders or another reputable shipper.

Then there is no duty and no hasssle, no weight limits. Shipping that many boxes you can haggle for a discount, free boxes. Does your GFs father have a secure dry place to store the boxes? Santa Barbara is a great location. A friend and I shared a container. It went to Bohol because my friend already had a house there and we did not know where we would end up. Our friend made the shipping arrangement.

He used a moving company which provided door-to-door services. If all worked out OK in the end. Two reliable shippers are Manila Forwarders http: I have considered buying a shipping container to ship all my things to Cagayan de Oro from Ohio. I have lots of power tools, hand tools, automotive tools, as well as a full house of stuff and books. Most use a container provided by the shipping company. I have heard lower prices. I wish we had shipped our own container with furniture and household goods.

I am living in Ilocos Norte…about 90 kliks east of Laoag, I need to move a motorcycle down to Manila…do you know of any inexpernsive freigting methods? Val just be carefull. I have traveled there for years and I am moving there. He is my expeirence. You can ask one person who seems like an expert. Then you get there and find the story is completly different.

This is a country that is fighting almost every known terrorist group. I would strongly recomend you not try to bring them there. Does anyone have the name and number for the container shipping companies? I will be moving from NYC to Manila. So my stuff would be shipped directly to a contact or friend of mine… Yes the parts are mostly a new and never been fired,a demiled guns,no licence recquired in usa to have a parts as long its not a guns..

You understand that such registration may have no applicability in the Philippines or anywhere else outside the U. They are large, flat rate cardboard boxes which are shipped by sea for the U.

There is no limit on the weight of the packed box. You can send the boxes to yourself in the Philippines before you leave the U. See if there is a Manila Forwarders or Forex World shipping agent near where you live. They will supply boxes. You talked about illegal stuff, I talk about legal and a registered items thats i want to transport them..

I was informed by philipines port authorities thats those gun parts items must be registered in order to send them there… What about tools,how to shipping them?? However I do know that the importation and ownership of guns and other dangerous devices is strictly regulated and should be approached with special caution by the foreigner.

Hello, Is there anyway how to transport a gun parts or firearms parts to philipines?? I dont want to retaliate with my parts if i gonna leave usa…. Please provide more information on this topic particulary,i have a 3 models of gun parts an assault rifle,submachine gun and a basicly a post war ww walther p1 pistol parts… I know there must be a way how to bring those parts,all parts not have a reciever but they have a magazines set..

It probably necessary to filled up some aplications but thats not a problem,all parts not been used at all their condition mostly new or been just stored for long without shooting… What kind of papers must be signed when shipping those parts in container???? From areas like new york or new jersey to metro manila or quezon city?? And please explain a details conserning about recieving all items in philipines….

Thanks for your kind comments. We have a lot in common. We live so close to Villa. We get our bottled water from Dulonan, shop at the Villa public market and I frequently hop a jeepney from Molo to Villa plaza for my morning walks. We have no medical insurance except for PhilHealth. In a few months Bob will turn 65 and so qualify for Medicare in the US. We are also on our own for prescription drugs. Of course, routine care is so affordable in Iloilo.

Even major surgery can be affordable here. The total cost was about P70, If she had been a foreigner it would have cost more but still affordable for most.

Some foreigners do have US medical insurance which is accepted by a few hospitals here. Asian Hospital in Alabang Manila receives good reports in this regard. I understand that it is part owned by the same group as Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok.

Bumrungrad focuses on medical tourists. I also plan to retire in Iloilo in a few years now—maybe to be deferred due to the economic downturn. I will be frequenting your site for tips.
