Ok. This has gone on long enough. We are all part of his forum. Jack especially. Without you, we wouldn't have had a forum in the 1st place. Jim, why are you fighting over a currency? Remember the rule attack the post not the poster? You've been here long enough to know better. Now all of you just take a deep breath, count to 10 then knock it off. Then let's all get back to running a good forum. Thank you all.......

Wow guys lets not get too personal with things here. I have been a member of this forum since 2006. Not a big contributor mainly because of my nature. I am a listener, doer, but not a big talker. We are adults and are free to do as we please.
Well the forum is just a forum for us to exchange ideas, information and maybe be friends. I always like this forum because i think the posters here are more mature and respectful compare to other forum where your every post is attacked, critiqued or what ever. Lets all have a beer. Cheers :D
Me personally i do not take anything said here personally and
Never look down on anyone and always extend a helping hand. Tomorrow the role may be reverse.
Life is what you make it. Nothing to do with luck.

I'm still here. Sorry for my "rant". Those of you who have known me for a long time, know that I can get very defensive when I'm attacked. For putting all of you through that, I'm sorry. And for those of you who sent PM's, emails and have posted kind words here in public, "Thank You" to all of you. I'm not going anywhere. This forum is a part of me, like one of my own children.

Hi Gray wolf, thanks for the info on "Forex", I checked out their website, looks like only Balikbayan boxes but I will give them a call this week and see if the do the shipping container scenario outlined at the start of this post. Our local Asian store in Maroochydore in Queensland do the Balikbayan boxes, I will speak to them also about cost and report back, again thanks to all for your input.
Cheers, Steve

Hi all, Spoke to "Forex" today and they can't help/don't do full shipping containers for the general public only Balikbayan boxes, large size is AU$ 130.
including insurance.
Our local Asian store run by Filipinos do the large size for $140. My better half asked about insurance etc. and he had no Idea, probably a drop off point for "Forex" or the likes.
Interestingly though, it turns out this guys wife is from the same city as my partner,,,,,,,,,,,,no wonder the conversation went on for 10 minutes. LOL, no discounts offered though.
Cheers, Steve

Big Pearl go to the DHL site on the internet look for the ocean fright division they can arrange shipment of a 40 Foot Container for you Or just contact there office in Manila or your country where your shipping from. Also it may be cheaper for you to buy a last use container that way its shipped directly to your location and no charge for return figure the cost of 1200 USD 20 footer or 1500 USD for 40 footer

Good Luck

Wow, thanks FMSINC that's great info, funny though I did look at their website many months ago and only found boxes, document mailing etc. maybe I should have had a mummy look instead of a daddy look.
Again thanks and I will look into it and give an update.
Cheers, Steve

Hi all, thanks for the info FMSINC but was a dead end, I spoke to them and yes they ship containers through out the world but in Australia only commercial not personal household etc. They put me onto 2 other companies that could help but yet again those 2 companies only did boxes etc.
Frustrating as you would think DHL would know companies that ship personal containers. All  this aside I do have access to 2 companies that can ship for us to Manila and another company from Manila to La Union.

What I can not find out is correct info on taxes and import duties for personal belongings shipped to the Philippines. I am slack, as I said in an earlier post on this thread that I would speak to PRA regarding taxes and the SRRV but have not to date, maybe DU30 will raise the threshold on this issue as is being done with Balikbayan boxes, we will see.
Cheers, Steve
