Users Flag! Originally from usa. Users Flag! Expat in philippines.

[QUOTE=Rebaqshratz;14897508]I shipped a 40 footer for around 9K USD. I used United in Canton Mass and it is very comforting have our things around us here. Plus the quality of the stuff from the US seems to be of a much higher quality...take into account the different electricity..we brought evrything and bought some inverters here to get the 120v needed.

Wanted to ask you what port it shipped out of once trucked to that location, after packing in Canton? A Filipina blogger my asawa follows here in WA state said she was quoted $5K for a container (I think a 40 footer); so, she instead opted to send what she could by a whole lot of BB boxes....something like 20 of 'em, still far cheaper than her container quote, but of course no furniture. Like you, I'd love to have My better quality stuff, as well as heirlooms, when we move back in Spring '20, as long as way to get them back to US if needed, which appears that's do-able as well. Finally,. how are your converters holding up? ONes we bought for in laws house in Caloocan died in less than 2 yrs running just a few 120 appliances on 'em. I've known one fella who bought a high end one here in US as well as a high end continuous power unit for his electronics; so, trying to figure it all out before we leave. Thanks, JC
