    DHL, 25kg is Php 9,700. Dadalhin sayo and pickup ang box. Meron din iba sizes available, iba din ang prices. Hindi nagkakalayo price sa Fedex.
    thanks, brian! u mean that DHL cost is via AIR, door to door. there are instances AU customs asks for add-up expenses on top of the one u paid in manila. dito ako mejo naa-alarma. would u know if meron ang DHL by ship at door-to-door din? salamat po!

    ... is on dependent visa. main applicant code 261313; 175 e-lodged june 6, 2011; visa grant mar 13, 2012; NSW-based.

    Yun procedure kay DHL, dalhin sa house mo yun box, then if ready for pickup let them know. Three (3) working days andun na sa Sydney yun box, Sydney lang tinanong ko kasi dito ipapadala yun mga gamit. :D Hehe.

    I suggest you ring them up for more info. Natawagan namin lahat DHL, UPS, FedEx and LBC. Nagulat ako talaga sa LBC, highway robbery. Php 19,700. Haha! Baka yun courier lalanguyin yun dagat kaya mahal ang fee.

    im trying bm express..1 box lang naman. going to cebu for about 100 plus something unlimited weight. dami na kasing gamit, goodies and mostly old clothes useable pa lahat. ok sana ilagay sa clothing bin ng salvos pero saw on current affairs tinatapon lang pa la nila if di nila ma collect within a week ung clothing bin. sayang naman if ganun..

    have anyone tried bm express? matagal nga lang about 8 weeks pero items na not really urgently needed naman. any feedback about them? i am not shipping "important" items so ok lang siguro noh??

    would appreciate any feedback:)

    hi @prime_21378. kung san ka magpadala, sa kanila ka buy ng box. life you're using LBC, you buy the box there. same with BM Express. $10 ata pero deductible na yun sa cost of shipping. so kung $80 ang service, you only pay $70 pagpapick up mo na, just keep the receipt. hth.

    hello po, buhayin ko lang po ulit itong thread na ito. I'm planning to have my other stuff shipped to Aus from Manila. Any suggestions or info that might help like freight forwarders companies, door to door services, etc, costs and travel time? I'm not in a hurry to have them shipped. Items to be shipped are electronics TV, sound system, collector's item statues, my special plates and kawali and sandok hehe.. Any inputs, suggestions are highly appreciated. TIA :)

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.
