    Phils to AU try DHL. Php 9-10k for 25kg, depending on the exchange rate I guess. Mas mura sila sa iba like LBC na around Php 19k ata. Akala ko nga nagbibiro nun sinabi sakin over the phone. Pero in the end, ginawa na lang namin nag-prepaid additional baggage allowance with Qantas na $90 for 20-23kg 1pc luggage. Mas mura.

    thanks Bryann...I'm curious to know if there's anyone here who have shipped their furnitures to Au...I know it will not be financially sound, but wife is persistent, having sentimental value on some of those things, so naghahanap ako ng best practice from those who have done it in the past.

    Hmm not sure about that, unless sobra mahal nun furnitues, I'd suggest benta niyo na lang or ipatago muna sa kamag-anak then bumili na lang dito. Medyo mahal ang costs especially bulky items.

    I checked on this yesterday sa dhl, they quote me around 13k for 25kg to Melbourne... :)

    looks like nagmahal na sila.

    @Bryann won't recommend it specially since there are lay by furniture in oz naman. i shipped my things from nz to au cost me around 3k nzd via shared container van for 2 months plus. the only pro was we had appliances (like the full lot of appliances from fridge to tv.) na from nz which were only a year old so really wanted to bring them instead of buying new appliances kasi if you work it out..3k nzd is still cheaper than buying brand new specially for tv and whitewares.

    so work out how much you will save and how much will you spend if you do ship your items.. sometimes it does warrant to ship them if you really have nice things back home. pero if the cost of shipping them..and upon checking the prices on items online sa au is almost similar or it works out cheaper to buy new in au then think about it.

    shipping items usually takes 2 months..so imagine if you can live for 2 months in au without a bed or fridge..hahahah..kasi kami we borrowed items from my sister if my sister wasn't here super mahirap na walang gamit sa bahay.

    also with appliances..ask if ok bah if galing pinas kasi may rulings sila about electrical appliances na dapat ganito specs and etc. you would need an adapter for most of your things kasi the prong tips won't fit in the oz electrical sockets.

    but as for the furniture mas ok na dito na lang in au in retrospect or should have just gotten a fully furnished apartment. kasi furniture wise..madaming lay bys or if you want talaga cheap there's lots of 2nd hand but ok pa din quality madami sa gumtree or ikea if you want brand new:)

    for odd shaped items like bikes and furniture.. you would really need a shared container van kasi yung boxes are priced per cubic metre. so if odd shaped items.. they will price it based on the space you take up sa shared container van.

    hello sa nagpaship na from SG to AU, i'm only shipping around 50kg to melbourne, I know Singpost is around S$216 ito na ba yung by ocean freight?
    Though may option din ako ipadala from pinas, may extra na space pa kasi ko sa box ko na papuntang pinas. Then pwede ko din ipaship from Pinas so either from pinas or sg kung alin mas mura mas ok.

    I plan to bring with me my desktop CPU which i plan to use as our HTPC box. It's a Lian-Li PC-A04 with 1 SSD and 4 HDDs. Any tips how I can bring this with me and how much it would cost? Any issues I need to be aware of? (aside from the item being potentially inspected for illegal movies, music, etc.)

    @silvre hindi naman nainspect yung 3 hard drives ko pag in-out ako dito... not unless siguro ipakita mo..

    Ok yung SSD bitbitin mo dito.. bumili ako ng crucial m4 128GB.. 160AUD ata.. feb/march? 2012 pa ata ito. I wont suggest dalhin mo yung PC.. masyadong malaki.. damit na lang.. since mas mahal ang damit dito.. mas ok kung laptop/notebook since you can squeeze it in..

    Pwede ka rin makabuo ng PC dito tignan mo yung mga price sa http://www.msy.com.au/

    Mga 2009, 6-8 box ata na 20k ang naship ko noon from chinapost..to perth.. tapos mga 3 x 20k from PhilPost lang.. mga Php2k-3k lang (cant remember) via SAL.. Mostly damit, unan, curtains, baby clothes, winter clotes, bulky items etc. Sabi mga 6 months daw bago dumating pero 1-1.5 months dumating naman... I wouldn't suggest shipping appliances and furniture here.. daming old furniture kung saan saan na sale naman...

    also note.. 2009.. i remember i took singair and pumunta ako sa makati ofc nila and told them... i am a "first time migrant" to AU. Bali they adjusted the total capacity namin to 120k ata.. 40k each x 3. for no extra cost. Parang privilege ito eh.. you need to show the PR visa stamps ofcourse. Note economy lang kami. Pagbaba namin airport mas mataas pa sa misis ko yung patong patong na maleta..

    Hi guys! Ask ko lang po if anyone has tried shipping their stuff to Brisbane? Anu forwarder ginamit nyo and may additional payment po ba for custom duties?

    May nakatry na po ba sa backofficeboss? Plano po kasi namin dalhin yung 42" lcd tv namin. Kaso di sya kasya sa balikbayan box. Nanghihinayang po kasi kami dahil bago pa sya at kung ibebenta ay sympre mababa nalang dahil 2nd hand na. Please advise.

    Maraming salamat!

    mj4, pack and send seems to be a reliable company mahal nga lang rates nila. Is it worth the effort ba? kasi yung sony store dito sa brisbane cbd naka sale yung bravia 40" nila ng $550 na lang, yung 55" smart LED nila is less than $1100.

    @Davidx23 thanks for your reply. nagtry lang ako kasi baka possible na madala kung mura lng naman kesa bibili pa kami ng bago. pero kung mura naman pala diyan siguro nga better kung iwanan nalang. :)
