It’s our second time to use forwarding services, first was Johnny Air Cargo. But since Johnny Air Cargo no longer offer consolidation services for free, we looked for other options. I found Pobox.ph rates very affordable, plus they offer consolidation of your shopped items in the US for free. Same procedure applies, shop in US online stores and have it delivered to their US address (warehouse). They can hold your items for a maximum of 45 days before packing them into a box and shipping it to the Philippines. It takes 4 weeks by sea for the packages to reach Philippine shores but they delivered the box door-to-door.
The box above is worth $40 and can fit items with dimensions not longer than 43″ to 50″ irregardless of the weight. Let’s see, this box contained 1 North Face tent, several bike accessories and gears which are heavy and memory cards. The only negative point I can say on Pobox.ph is that they don’t respond to queries/emails quickly. They also don’t update regularly and accurately the shipping form they have on the website to know which items have already arrived at their warehouse. But a constant follow-up thru emails and texts will get you a reply eventually.
I’ll use their service once again when I shop for baby items and aircast walking boots that my friend needs.
