Great success with LBC and no taxes. Very dependable. FedEx to, But will get hit with taxes upon arrival to PI.

I ordered a crock pot from Sears overseas and a 7.5 Hamilton Beach crock pot cost me almost $200 with shipping and VAT paid, what a horrible deal but when there's no other option it's there.

I sort of understand the shipping charges but that VAT tax is completely insane! Do they tax the shipping charges? Many high dollar or quality items can not be shipped from these companies so only option is if you still have a close family member in the states, explain the Balikabyan procedure to them... sure wished I had sent a few extra boxes, some appliances are impossible to find or way overpriced and the quality is a step down from any big box US chain store.

Importing into the UK will be taxed on the postage. You pay tax on the hole lot so no suprise that the Phils also do it.

I normally order at Amazon or anything from Hongkong or China and never have experience of not receiving the items. When I order something from amazon and seller doesn't ship to PI, I often address it to my sister in USA and she forwarded it to me via US Postal service and registered. If it is from China, Hongkong or Singapore I always ask to ship it via EMS with tracking and it is much cheaper. 5-7 days shipment. Same thing when I ask my mom to send me something from PI to Australia we used EMS. Experience with Fedex and USPS, I have to pay another $40 - $60 when I received the items...

A computer store or better still a model shop would be worth trying.

Just to give you an idea
Amazon price $690.00 but won't ship to PI.
My daughter shipped it $425.00 from Alabama (there is no LBC there)

Galleon price quote for the same product 157227php approximately $3630.98
This is why I would NEVER recommend this company

I found your Lithium AAA batteries in True Value hardware store in Trinoma Mall. Costs P250/pair. I was there 3 days ago. Placed after the cashier, blue packaging. Just not sure if there are enough stocks.
Hope this helps.
