shipping from Philippines to Australia
 
Good afternoon all,
Any Aussie members had the need to ship a couple of BB sized boxes from Philippines to Australia.
I may need the service shortly and appreciate any advise.

I sure would like to know too. I used the post office and this was a very expensive way of sending stuff abroad. I don't know any cheaper way.

Yes, you are correct, if I find any thing I will let you know.
The last time I used the PO, sent a registered letter to Australia and it never arrived!!

I'm sending a package. I asked the postman who delivers letters to do it for me. He recommended I send it registered with tracking number. The postage is P3,200 more than double the cost of what I'm sending. He just txted me the tracking number. Let's see when this gets received in NSW.

Yes I did that, registered and tracking number, except that they cant track the tracking number, still not delivered at 4 months. But no doubt not far away now, good luck!!!!

You would think so, but I sent a document to Australia by Priority air mail high cost and it sat in the PO at Melbourne for 5 days!!!
This one just did not arrive and I doubt it ever got out of Philippines.
