  • @bestgreatdealever
    Naka-pagpaship pa naman ako ng sets of batteries (NiMH at Lithium) from <click here for link>
    Yung batteries from battery bob na order ko ng Feb tapos dumating 2nd week of March and di ko lang alam kung ano shipping method pero parang USPS.

    Yung inorder ko naman na Drift action cam from <click here for link> na may battery at spare battery nya na deliver din via UPS.

    Oorder ka rin ba ng dongle at spare battery nyan. Wala kasi non dito lolz
  • @cympaulife
    Thanks. Kasi as per email ni MSB (MY SHOPPING BOX) nung March 19, na di na daw sila muna magshiship kasi as per regulation ng US IATA. Sa MSB kasi ako nagpapaship kasi I found them na hassle free and smooth transaction services nila. Hindi naman po battery operated yung items ko po sana, it needs charging lang po naman.

  • @bestgreatdealever

    Eto yung mga ilang documents na nakita ko baka makatulong. Parang sa transport by Air lang yung nakita ko not sure on transport by sea.
    Yung prohibition sa IATA applied ata don sa batteries only. <click here for link>
    IATA <click here for link>
    UPS <click here for link>
    FAA <click here for link>

    Pero maganda siguro kung magkaroon ng sticky sa page 1 regarding dito.
  • @cympaulife
    Thanks ulit po. So meaning to say po na pwede iship yung mga gadgets na may lithium ion or polymer inside?

  • Ask ko lang po for LBC shipping cart kung accurate po yung price na nakalagay po sa box. Pag Air po ay nag babago naman ng price pero yung Sea ay fix yun price na nakalagay. May item kasi ako na 28X18X9 pero kahit dagdagan ko pa ng ibang item same pa din ng price. Pag pina ship ko po ba ito hindi po ba nila ko sisingilin ng extra. Kasi baka mas mura pa pag pinag hiwahiwalay ko ng box compare sa isang malaking box.
  • Will never use LBC shipping cart again. I was quoted less than P3,000 air cargo cost, ininform ko sa kanila size, weight & description ng oorderin ko. After ordering it and arrived sa kanila sa US bigla nagbago ang total amount babayaran ko almost P5,000. Almost twice sa quote na sinabi nila. Reason daw is di nagkasya sa box na unang quotation nila. Nag-allow nako ng extra space para hindi mapuno yung box at para sigurado ako di lalagpas sa specified box but stil sabi nila di daw talaga kasya. We'll see if totoo yung sinasabi nila na di tlaga kasya sa maliit na box. As for me, my first and last sa LBC. AVOID LBC SHIPPING CART. Hassle yung in charge sa US office nila na si james Taylor. Kahit anong email mo di sumasagot kelangan pa talaga pilitin yung mga CSR officer makakausap mo sa dito sa Pinas para may feedback from James Taylor. Overpriced & US personnel walang pakialam sa email requests & queries.
  • share ko lang. ordered a snuggie from ebay and used johnnyaircargo for it. they reply to all questions in a respectable amount of time kahit na parang mej makulit na ako haha. i recieved the package within 2 weeks. they'll be my go-to guys in the future. kinda pircey and i like their service.

    Same here. My Feb 25 In-transit on-board OOCL Memphis 016W (Feb 6 On-board) was delivered on Mar 22.

    But my Feb 19 In-transit on-board OOCL Memphis 016W (Feb 18 On-board) still no update.

    My other Feb 19 In-transit on-board OOCL Memphis 016W (No record of On-board) also still no update.

    Strange ... earlier to be on-board, later to be in-transit, earlier to be delivered. Earlier to be in-transit, later to be updated.
  • @DelRio99

    Was that JAC Plus personnel in PH or JAC Padala personnel in US?
  • ^^latest check ko sa box tracker, wala na kung anong vessel sya. Balik na sa dating gawi na departed etc lang.
  • @jlaw08
    Yea, wala na vessel name. :| Sent them a message regarding that. I want to be able to track the ship!
  • Anybody here who is encountering "system error" in MSB when trying to make payment via BDO card?

  • In last e-mail reply from Forex, CSR answered question about status of box, but did not answer question about vessel name from Kaohsiung to Manila.
  • Tried again and got reply:

    ... unfortunately, due to the current status of the ports, both in Kaohsiung and Manila (and the other South Asian ports being served by Kaohsiung), we are not able to specify the name of the vessel to be used for the Kaohsiung-Manila leg. Currently, we refer to the boxesí respective container numbers for tracking the status of your shipment.

    For your reference, the container number of your packages is TCLU158218 and as per further verifying with our Forex Cargo office the boxes ... are currently at the Philippine Customs to undergo inspections and scanning.


    Based on container tracking <click here for link> (OOCL line), looks like there was a stopover in Manila before Kaohsiung, which is not shown in vessel tracking <click here for link> (previous voyage 016W) ?

    Los Angeles --> Manila --> Kaohsiung --> Manila

  • March 18 departed:
    Please be advised the name of the vessel of your box is OOCL SHENZHEN 076W.
    Should you have additional concern, please donít hesitate to contact us.


    I looked for it in marinetraffic.com, and the destination is "Nakhodka, RU," but when I looked it up at nykline.com, the destination is "Kaohsiung," "Xiamen," "Hong Kong," and "Dachan Bay." No trace of Russia. o_O

  • ^ Nakhodka close to Japan? Like Manila, could be undisclosed stopover before Kaohsiung?

    Container number? Interested to know if container tracking is more updated than ship tracking.
  • I ordered a Tumi bag and an Incipio DualPro case for iPhone 6 from Amazon and a Nike Air Max shoes and 2 caps at Foot Locker. Shipped them to myEcasa.

    Will give an update when I received the items. :)
  • @cadr
    Haven't asked the container number yet. Pero mukha ngang mas detailed at updated ang tracking ng container (tracked yours in searates.com), so I guess I'll be asking them.

    FYI pala sa mga bumibili online na dumadaan sa Post Office ang package. May additional stamp sa notice, "Pls. bring invoice or PayPal." Dunno if this is only for purchases from China or if they stamp all notices for packages from overseas, including gifts from Western countries. Got one notice yesterday, but I still haven't picked it up in the PO yet.
  • ano mas mahal yung prefered courier ng merchant/supplier from US o yung mga JAC, POBOX, other forwarders?

    kung sa Europe ano prefered nyo na forwarder and pano process nun? (yung most cheapest/safest sana) air/sea para may options ako..
  • @jac9
    Tingin ko mas mahal kung preferred courier of supplier at diretso sa Pilipinas, kung DHL, FedEx, UPS man yan, o kaya USPS.
    Kung privately-owned company ang courier, tatagain ka ng tax pagdating dito sa Pilipinas. Dumadaan sila sa Customs Evaluation. Madami akong nabasang 'horror stories' tungkol sa tax na pinapataw nila.
    Kung USPS, dumadaan sa Post Office at may Customs Evaluation rin. Tatagain ka rin ng tax dun, pero depende yung price kung corrupt o hindi yung officer sa local PO.
    Doble-doble ang bayad - Shipping from US to Philippines + Customs Tax (which sometimes reaches up to half of the total price of the package). Kaya I'd prefer forwarding companies in the US over direct shipping. :)
    I haven't experienced shipping from Europe, though.
  • A friend is planning to buy a music keyboard from the USA. mas mura daw kasi. i was told the item weigh around 39lbs.
    which reliable courier/forwarder do you recommend para makatipid sa freight?

  • Hi guys sino ba dito nagdrop ng items gamit viabox?
  • Hi, pwede po makisabay sa pagbili? surface pro 2 po sana sa amazon thanks! :)
  • Anyone had a package shipped from Taiwan to PH via EMS? Is it delivered to your doorstep or do you have to pick up at PH post office? Which branch?

    Seller said they can declare it as a gift and value under $49. Will there be customs duties/tax and about how much?
