Everything I have expected has arrived intact, normally taking three weeks from the USA postmark for small parcels or envelopes. It costs me P1020 per year. This takes one link out of the chain in the Philippine Postal Service.

I like this thought. Would be quite a bit cheaper than using FedEx or DHL for the things I have to guarantee that I get from my forwarder such as a Credit Card or something on that order.

I Agree with Member Roundhead we use a PO box at the Philippines Post office.
luckily the wife knows the guy who works in the office and if wee need to send anything to the UK
he will insist on wrapping it himself and he marks the parcel with some kind of mark, everything arrives in the UK no problems this way! on the other hand we do have problems with incoming mail etc as it all goes to manila First! and the dreaded Customs want their cut! we have had things go missing from parcels my son has sent me. and everything is opened!
we even lost several Tomica model cars my son sent me. we have used DHL and FEDEX with the same probs. MInd you every Balikbayan box we sent from the UK ( 15 in total ) all arrived unopened !
But then Hey ! Its More FUN in The Philippines !!
