sis ako nakapag-padala na ng LCD TV pero hindi sa BB Box nilagay. Kung ano yung kahon nung TV, yun ang pinadala sa pinas. Yung pinagpapadalhan kasi namin, talagang nagpapadala daw ng mga LCD TV sa pinas kaya sanay na sila. Tas insured din pala yun
hi sis can you tell yun courier who can ship lcd tv..please thanks!

try niyo yung aerosend malaki to na forwarders at UPS at fedex yung kanilang ginagamit pag malayu ang customer nila sa hub..marami na din silang hub sa U.S, sa pagkakaalam ko may Cali at Chicago sila at mayron ata sa hawaii. try nyo lang visit http://aerosend.com/...medyo mura din at maganda ang service na try ko na po sila..yung query nyo ipapasa nila sa callcenter pag mag follow-up kayo!<img src="http://aerosend.com/media/76024.jpg" ALT="aerosend" WIDTH=50 HEIGHT=50>

^my cousin once sent an LCD TV to the Phils from California. Okay naman ang resulta. be sure lang siguro na trusted niyo iyong shipping or courier company.

ok lang din if you trust the forwarding company. pinaka-ok na alam ko is Forex and Alas. but I think they have different computation pag electronic items since it requires special handling.

@ey: pwede ang wine sa balkbayan box basta i-bubble wrap mo na lang para hindi mabasag basag. my friend sent balikbayan box with wines inside. sa west covina, california kami nagpadala. ok naman hindi naman nabasag.

to everyone: i'll be leaving for Arlington, Texas soon. may alam ba kayo na forwarder? kasi naiisip ko pano ko magpapadala ng box papunta sa pinas pag nalipat na office namin dun huhu.. please pa-inform ako kung may alam kayo. salamat mga sis!

Mga sis bat ganon? I purchased stuffs online. Tapos I had them delivered at Johnny Air's NY Office. I chose Johnny Air kasi nga daw mura. Tapos nung dumating na yung package sa kanila $260 inabot. Bat ganon? SUper mahal ba siya? Kasi it's my first time and parang tingin ko it's super mahal.

^ in my experience, mas mahal ang johnny air cargo kesa lbc... i've sent some stuff (from US to MNL) mga 2-3x na via JAC and always spent waaay more compared kung sa lbc ko pinadala. btw, these were small packages, via air. yun nga lang, faster and shorter ang delivery time nila.
