Default Shipping arrival

Our shipping container arrived yesterday morning, 2 weeks for Ben and I to pack, nearly 6 weeks sailing, only 3 days to clear customs, no extra fees. (Returning Filipino BIR tax exemption)
All the belongings were placed where we directed, now 60 to 70 boxes to unpack over the next few months, good to see our things here and nothing appears to be broken.

Great to deal with these companies.

Cheers, Steve.

Steve thank you for the update and it sounds like everyone when smoothly plus you made sure all documents in order. So it sounds like it was a door to door service?

Yes Mark, door to door. We had the container delivered in Oz and we spent 2 weeks packing it, not the shipping company, we did the manifest etc. As said this end PH) the crew unloaded and placed furniture and gear where we wanted but we will unpack everything.

We used a reputable company in Oz and they arranged the forwarding company in Manila who is an affiliate and very good operators. Lots of paper work in Oz and even more in Ph but the forwarders helped out with all that with only one visit to their office in Manila, Bengie for his tax exemption and sign many doc's.

Cheers, Steve.

I also had a great result shipping a 40 footer from Boston to Manila. I used a United affiliate in the states and they packed everything and also guaranteed that nothing would be broken. Their partner outfit in Manila unloaded and unpacked everything as well as reassembly and placement in the house. This help a lot because we have a second floor. It is very comforting having all my personal stuff here with me which includes a complete work shop. The benefit for a returning dual citizen is significant and much appreciated by our family. Customs was handle entirely by the receiving forwarder and was hassle free from my perspective. TG for that.

I agree Reba, pay the bucks and your gear gets here intact and nary a drama with customs if you cross the t's and dot the I's, just to replace tools here would cost a fortune here let alone household goods and collectables. Fortunately most of my Aussie power tools are 240 volts 50/60cycles same with a lot of our household kitchen goods.

Cheers, Steve.

Steve, one question I have was gonna ask in PM, but figure benefits the group , is there any exit plan reverse shipping method you know of? I’d love to ship some of our belongings over vice BB boxes, so we could also do some furniture as well, but have only seen one possible post in past about a place near airport that ships Out of the TP. I know there has be a way because all these embassy folks don’t stay forever and move to other countries or back home with full shipments at some pint. Anyway figured I’d ask you and any others for ideas since many have researched or lived it already. In the end, who knows?...we might check in and never leave....a la “Hotel California”

Morning Jay, mirrors on the ceiling? Yes I have seen few posts about sending boxes or containers out of PH. but I'm sure it's possible. For me I hope this is my final move so never gave a thought to shipping anything back.
The company I dealt with in Oz sold part container space but we filled ours. The forwarders in Manila were fantastic to deal with and as said nothing broken or missing, customs never cut the the seal, there were no extra fees as all the paperwork was correct as advised by our handler, the seal was cut when the container arrived to our house.

Could I suggest a starting point with this company "AGS four winds" to enquire about shipping out gear. I will PM you the contact details of the assistant manager, I'm pretty sure he is Scottish and easy to chat with. If they can't help I'm sure they could point you in the right direction.

Good luck and hope to catch up when you move back.

Cheers, Steve.

its definitely possible but probably expensive. I had my company relocate a bunch of my furniture and stuff from the Philippines back to the US a few months ago and they used AGS Four Winds as well. All my stuff was in a 20ft container but I have no idea how much it cost to ship. I'll check the shipping documents and report back if I can find anything.
