Last time for me using door to door lbc

I sent almost 100 BB from Hawaii to Surigao and Cebu and none of them arrived prior to 2 months passing, with some taking 3 months. Used LBC a dozen times with good results. No better or worse than any others.

 

Just have patience!

Three boxes ready to go. Will be picked up in Hamilton Ontario Canada tomorrow by Reliable Express to Cebu. I'll arrive early December, and the boxes likely 8 weeks later. Sent three boxes @ CDN$95 each last year via same shipper. No problems. Arrived just a little earlier than they predicted.

 

3 Balikbayan boxes, picked up in Hamilton Ontario Canada 26 November 2014, and delivered to rural Cebu 8.30pm on Saturday the 21st of February.. just 30 minutes ago.  That's 12-1/2 weeks, door to door, and about 2 weeks more than expected.  Boxes appear undamaged and are definitely unopened.

3 boxes sent from Milton, Ontario, Canada to Tagaytay and So. Leyte... took from Oct. 1st until Feb. 6th.   Tagaytay was delivered about 3 days before So. Leyte, so the delay does not appear to be in-country.

 

Total of 4 months door to door... when it used to take 8-9 weeks.  Literally double the time, now.

We sent 2 BB Boxes with Star Kargo from the Los Angeles, CA, USA area on Feb 26th. We got a call that the boxes had been delivered to Cebu. Won't know their condition until we hear from our people.

I have used UMAC Express Cargo numerous times from Central Florida.

 

Always good service. The even delivered some boxes from Sorsogon and then to Dumaguete when I moved, but forgot to tell them. The only charged me a small additional fee for this.

 

I use to get the boxes free, but the last time I shipped a BB Box was several years ago. So not sure if they are still free.

 

I did notice that our local Filipino store still has them.

Most of this information seems old, I am headed to the states, Harrisburg, PA to be exact and I want to send some items using a 

Balikbayan Box 

Can anyone give me some suggestions of who to talk to here and I have an idea of some of the restrictions, but please help me out.  In total I will be sending two boxes perhaps three, is there a limit?
