Courier Recommendation / Experience

Hi all.

Sa wakas napadala ko na docs ni hubby kanina for assessment. Ang aga ko sa Robinsons Manila. Here's my feedback:

First stop DHL, then Fedex, then LBC....
Ayaw tanggapin for all the same reason na POBox yung address. Naghahanap ng ibang address. E anong magagawa ko, yun lang ang nakalagay na address for AMSA. Nakakapanggigil kasi last November, I was able to send docs to a POBox address in UAE via DHL, ngayon ayaw na nila tanggapin. Did you have the same experience? Mas preferred ko pa naman sana either DHL or Fedex kasi mas mabilis and mas reliable. Their response left me no choice but to opt for Philpost.

Philpost
Good grief they are open on weekends. The lady in charge was very helpful. Paid Php944 for Express Services (yun daw pinakamabilis). Approximately 5 days yung SLA. Hay, dagdag sa nerbiyos to kung kelan matatanggap yung docs ko. Pray pray lang talaga na it will be delivered on time. Di muna ako magblog while di pa natatanggap yung result ng assessment.

Post away your courier experience and recommendation.

    kunin mo yung tracking number then enter mo dito.

    http://auspost.com.au/track/

    Okay din ang courier ng Philpost. EMS international Services may tracking number yun naka attach sa resibo kaya malalaman mo kung nailagay o natangap na sa PO box ng australia.

    cheers

    Konti lang din pala yung difference in fees ng Philpost sa DHL, LBC at Fedex. Akala ko laki ng tipid kapag Philpost yung kinuha mo na courier.

    Ganun din ang scenario when I sent my ACS requirements, PhilPost lang. Kasi naman, from all the professional-looking boxes and parcel folders ng DHL, FedEx, etc - parang ang jologs nung plastic na supot ng PhilPost. I even bought an illustration board to fit inside my plastic envelope para di malukot documents ko.

    Ironically, mas nauna pa dumating sa OZ yung papers ko kesa sa papers ng wife ko through DHL :D

    @RClem Ok din po pala sa Philpost. At least may alternative na tayo sa mga usual couriers dito satin.

    @tamarind26 1-1.5 weeks lang so sulit na rin.
    @k_mavs yup, ok din sa kanila pero honestly, di ko magamit yung tracking# online. I needed to call them personally. Not sure kung glitchy pa yung online tracking nila last Feb 2011. Since photocopy naman yung papadala and since no choice kaya napilitan akong sa kanila magpadala. Pero kung original documents lahat, baka mas bibilin ko yung may "Peace of mind" fee :D

    may nakapag-suggest na rin to use that address at natanggap naman nila..
    search the other VETASSESS thread.. goodluck..

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
