Hello,

We are going to move to Philippines this year (hopefully) and we are looking for shipping company that can ship furniture and household goods, is there someone here can recommend shipping companies? We live in the mid- west, south west of Chicago.


Thanks and I really appreciate your help.

I would not use Manila Forwarders, Most companies deliver in 6 weeks from the states, it is currently taking MF 3 1/2 months to deliver, as they have been under high examination from Homeland Security...speaking from personnel experieance.

Hello Ron, who are the companies that are delivering in 6 weeks?   From your personal experience would it be more economical to just sell your belongings in the states and buy what you need over there?

Way back I know there was a discussion on container shipping, just fill the container whatever size and have it shipped.. Might be worth checking? Guess it depends on where you ship from..

They are the only company that I have been able to find that seems to have a presence in the midwest. Certainly post additional companies, especially if you have personal experience. I have not had any personal experience with any of these companies. There is still a long time ahead of me before I do, also ;)

 

Edit: James, Manila Forwarder does ship containers. I don't know of very many companies that do containers from the Chicago area to the Philippines, but I know they do. I didn't know that there was faster available tho. 3-1/2 months is what I would have expected tho, as that is about how long our Balikbayan boxes tend to take (give-or-take half-a-month)

Hello James,

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

FOREX took over 3 months the last time we shipped, but that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like they do containers, just balikbayan boxes (and, interesingly, overweight luggage... hmm....)

 

I figured I would also add their URL here: http://www.forexworld.us/

 

(forex.com is NOT what you want ;) lol )
