    Not sure if this was mentioned previously but worth noting that Philpost ships boxes to Australia for a maximum weight of 20kg/box at a cost of less than P7500 - this is via air parcel.

    @hanzyboy May binayaran ka pa ba sa customs here in Australia nung ngpadala ka thru DHL? I actually went to DHL to inquire and they quoted 5800 for 17kg to Sydney. The box will arrive in Sydney in 3 days pero me bayaran daw ako sa customs pagdating dito pero la cla idea how much. Can you tell magkano binayaran mo? Thanks.

    Nagpadala ko 55kg pero wala ako additional na binayaran, karamihan na pinadala ko used na na. Depende yata sa dineclare mo na value nung items yung sa tax di lang ako sure.

    Hi All!

    So lumalabas mas mura if mag-pre-paid na lang ng excess baggage sa airline? Even at P42:AUD1.

    We used DHL 3 years ago. reliable naman and 7-10 days nadeliver na.
    Mga 10k ang 25kg. The problem was kung may clothes especially used ones idinadaan yata sa UV rays. Kaya after a few weeks nakatanggap kami ng $100 plus na bill from Quarantine. Kaya yung mga sumunod naming ipinadala wala nang clothes.

    In my opinion kung kaya ninyong dalhin as prepaid excess baggage, mukhang mas mura pa lalabas. Kung naman gusto ninyo talaga ipadala, iwasan nyo nalang ang clothes. Bawal din pala food, medicine sa DHL.

    Although we used Philpost; we shipped used clothes (almost 75% of our 20kg box) and wala naman kami binayaran...

    So doesn't mean that if you shipped used clothes, ma quarantine na kaagad... Nagkataon lang cguro @ADL

    Guys need help.. we recently used DHL to shipped our stuff from Pinas.last March 25 namin pina ship. doon sa declaration... nakalagay ay "used" clothes, toys and shoes.. Currently, when we track the shipment through the website, naka "The shipment is awaiting the next scheduled movement" status sya sa Hongkong since yesterday 1PM (Sydney Time).. may naka experience na ba nito lately.. I'm worried baka na hold dahil sa "used" clothes declaration......50kg shipment sya na binayaran namin sa pinas ng around Php16.5k..

    thanks...

    @ADL .. based sa tracking.. ito na yung status ng shipment:

    "Due to the nature of the goods, specific authorization is required from a regulatory authority other than Customs for further clearance"

    nagkaganito din ba yung shipment nyo? yung time na pinagbayad kayo ng 100AUD..

    sa mga nagpaship through dHL from pinas.. paki share naman kung na experience nyo itong ganitong status ng shipment noong dumating sa Sydney....

    thanks...
